HAMMOND, La. – Staff Sgt. Chris Zeringue, noncommissioned officer with the Louisiana National Guard’s 1021st Engineer Company, 205th Engineer Battalion, stands with his wife and daughter as they meet Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal before a deployment ceremony at Southeastern Louisiana University Center in Hammond, La., Aug. 16, 2013. Zeringue turned down a promotion and substantial pay raise at his civilian job so that he could deploy with his unit to Kuwait in support of Operation Enduring Freedom to conduct vertical construction operations.
