SOUTH BEND, Ind. South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is deploying to Afghanistan in just a few days.
A group of supporters came out to say goodbye on Sunday afternoon.
South Bend residents gathered outside the State Theater to give Buttigieg a long-lasting gift.
They took group photos for the mayor to remember his home and the city where he works.
The photos will be given to Mayor Buttigieg before he leaves, and some community members say they are sad to see him go.
The mayor is being deployed as part of his duties in the Navy reserves.
