How do I word an Invitation for a going away party for a soldier who is deploying overseas?

I'm not sure how to word it, some of his family doesn't know that he is being deployed yet.

A good request would be, "On June 1, please join us in honoring Jim's service to his country and our freedom". Don't mention his assignment.

It doesn't sound like it should be that much of a big deal. It would probably be best to know whether or not the family will know he is being deployed overseas by the time you choose to invite them. It doesn't make much of a difference, I would think. Just be truthful, honest and direct.
