MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

About 150 soldiers based in Marshall County will not be going to Afghanistan.

The Alpha Company of the 136th Expeditionary Signal Battalion was supposed to deploy to Afghanistan in December.

In April they were told they're being "off ramped," that means plans for them to deploy are on hold for now.

The group had been training for about four months before word came down.
