(JASPER CO.) - About 130 members of an Indiana National Guard unit are heading for a yearlong deployment to Afghanistan.

The 1638th Transportation Company based in the Jasper County town of Remington is having a departure ceremony on Tuesday at Tri-County High School.

National Guard Capt. Jessica Halladay tells the Journal & Courier they will be hauling equipment and supplies while providing security for convoys. She says the soldiers will train for a month at Fort Hood, Texas, before departing for Afghanistan.

This will be the third deployment to Iraq or Afghanistan for some members of the unit based in the town about 30 miles north of Lafayette.
