Two PA Lawmakers Deploying For Iraq In Same Unit

MEDIA, Pa. (AP) - A young state lawmaker is preparing to leave for his second tour of duty in Iraq.

Friends are saying goodbye this weekend to state Rep. Nick Miccarelli of Delaware County.

The 26-year-old Republican serves in an aviation combat unit of the National Guard. He is also a member of Ridley Park Borough Council.

A statehouse colleague, Rep. Scott Perry, R-York, is being deployed in the same helicopter combat brigade.

Gov. Rendell telephoned Miccarelli at a reception Friday to wish him well.
