FORT WAYNE (AP) - More than 900 Indiana National Guard soldiers will not deploy as scheduled this summer because of federal budget issues.
Units from New Albany, Scottsburg and Fort Wayne had their missions canceled because of automatic federal budget cuts and military downsizing.
About 400 members of the 1st Squadron of the 152nd Cavalry in New Albany and Company D of the 113th Combat Support Battalion in Scottsburg had been scheduled to report to the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt.
