DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - Some Dickinson-based North Dakota National Guard soldiers have been notified that they might be called to serve in Afghanistan.

The Guard says more than 150 members of the 816th Engineer Company have been put on alert for a possible mobilization early next year. The unit has a detachment in Mott.

Members of the unit deployed to Iraq from late 2003 to early 2005.

Some Army and Air Guard soldiers with other North Dakota units currently are serving in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Kuwait and Southwest Asia.
