AP-AZ--National Guard Deployment

PHOENIX (AP) - The 819th Engineer Company of the Arizona Army National Guard is set for deployment to Afghanistan.

Officials say a send-off ceremony for the 100 soldiers is set for Sunday morning at the Army Aviation Support Facility in Phoenix.

The group will first head to Fort Bliss, Texas, for a month of training before heading overseas.

The 819th Company's main mission will be to clear routes while supporting coalition forces, including detecting and neutralizing unexploded bombs and improvised explosive devices.
