S.C. Governor Nikki Haley's husband, Michael Haley, is a military technician for the S.C. National Guard and a Medical Service Corps officer in the Army National Guard -- an earlier this week word came that he was to deploy.

Michael will join an agribusiness team of 100 to 200 Guard members in Afghanistan, returning in December 2013.

So far, it's the first time the spouse of a governor has deployed with a Guard unit that anyone can recall.
