RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)--Help is on the way to northern Virginia where National Guard troops have been laboring in heavy snow over the past couple of days.
A detachment out of Sandston is loading up to relieve their fellow guard members in Fairfax County with Humvees and five-ton vehicles loaded with equipment.
The Virginia National Guard started mobilizing once Governor McDonnell declared a state of emergency.
And while most of us think of guard members as soldiers, helping out their fellow Virginians is all part of the job.
