BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The military says a Dickinson-based North Dakota National Guard unit won’t be called to serve in Afghanistan.

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

The military announced Wednesday that the unit was taken off alert status.

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 and Southwest Asia.
