Army Pvt. Jorell L. Parnell has deployed to Baghdad, Iraq, to support the mission of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The soldier is regularly assigned to the 86th Combat Support Hospital in Fort Campbell, Ky.
Operation Iraqi Freedom is the official name given to military operations involving members of the U.S. armed forces and coalition forces participating in efforts to free and secure Iraq. Mission objectives focus on force protection, peacekeeping, stabilization, security and counter-insurgency operations as the Iraqi transitional governing bodies assume full sovereign powers to govern the peoples of Iraq.
Members from all branches of the U.S. military and multinational forces are also assisting in rebuilding Iraq’s economic and governmental infrastructure, and training and preparing Iraqi military and security forces to assume full authority and responsibility in defending and preserving Iraq’s sovereignty and independence as a democracy.
Parnell, a utilities equipment repairer, has served in the military for more than one year.
He is the son of Kennett L. Parnell of Troy and Sandy M. Edminson of Union City.
His wife, Bobbie, is the daughter of Bobby J. Bishop and Jeniffer Bishop, both of Troy.
