Troops in the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment at Fort Carson are getting ready to deploy.

Wednesday morning, they loaded their fighting vehicles and heavy equipment on rail road cars. The next time the troops see the equipment, they'll be in Iraq.

The equipment has been through strict maintenance since the 3rd ACR's first deployment to Iraq nearly 2 years ago. And soldiers tell 11 News, they're confident in the equipment.

The soldiers will continue to load equipment through the weekend.
