Second generation sent to Afghanistan
In 2003, Red Wing resident Ron Allen was deployed to Afghanistan for his first combat tour overseas. Nearly a decade later, his son, Cliff, has been sent to the same country.
The Allens are just one of many families that have experienced multiple generations going to war -- the same war zone.
"A lot of our people that were there ... in 2011, '12 and '13 our children are coming in now," Ron said.
