GARY, Ind. (AP) - Members of an Indiana National Guard unit based in Gary are being deployed to Afghanistan.

National Guard officials say about 30 members of the 938th Military Police Detachment will be recognized during a departure ceremony Thursday in the Guard’s aviation facility at Gary/Chicago International Airport.

The soldiers will be assigned to police and security operations in both the Kandahar and Parwan Provinces in Afghanistan.

Indiana Adjutant Gen. Courtney Carr is expected to take part in the ceremony.

Earlier this month, the Indiana Air National Guard sent 140 airmen and eight jects from its 122nd Fighter Wing in Fort Wayne to Slovakia to take part in a monthlong training exercise with other NATO countries.
