VALDOSTA (AP) - Another group of Georgia Army National Guard personnel is preparing to deploy to Afghanistan.

A send-off ceremony for 106-members of Alpha Company, 2nd Battalion, 121st Infantry was held Wednesday night at the Georgia National Guard Armory in Valdosta.

A Guard spokesman said soldiers will train Afghan army and police units.

The unit will be given pre-deployment training at Camp Shelby, Miss., before heading overseas sometime in about 45 days.

Soldiers will serve approximately nine months in Afghanistan.
