Thousands of miles from Preston two local men are serving their country and switching places. Lt. Jed Stewart (left) stands by Patrick Barrington in front of a Blackhawk helicopter. Lt. Barrington is presently in Afghanistan. He is a Blackhawk pilot with the Utah National Guard’s 2-211 based in West Jordan. He and his unit are getting ready to leave Afghanistan in the next few weeks. They are being replaced by Idaho’s 1-168th based out of Boise (National Guard).
That unit includes Lt. Stewart, also a Blackhawk pilot. Barrington grew up in Riverdale and Stewart in Weston. They are also both graduates of Preston High and Utah State University.
