HAGERSTOWN - A Hagerstown minister training for deployment to Iraq was at the site that was the target of a disrupted plot to attack U.S. soldiers.
The Rev. Clark Carr, the minister at Grace United Methodist Church, is part of a Maryland Army National Guard brigade training at Fort Dix, N.J. Six men were charged Tuesday with plotting to kill American soldiers at Fort Dix and perhaps other military installations in the Northeast.
Capt. Randy Short, public affairs officer for the 58th Infantry Brigade Combat Team in Pikesville, Md., said Carr, who is a chaplain in that brigade, has nearly 30 days of training left at Fort Dix.
Short said there are other soldiers from the area in the brigade, which is part of a group of 1,300 being deployed from Maryland in June.
