Family, farming and the National Guard: Former, current soldiers build a life together in Regent


REGENT - It was just another day at the farm in June 2005 when Jarin Schaible stopped loading up wheat to answer his cellphone.

"It was a full-timer from the unit who had called to say that there was a good chance that our unit would be deploying," Jarin said. "My dad, who I farm with, was there and I told him what the phone call was about, and like any parent, dad hated to hear that and expected the worst."
