LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Fourteen University of Wyoming students are among the Wyoming Army National Guard soldiers being deployed to the Middle East.

The 162 members from the 133rd Engineer Company, based in Laramie, will be deployed to Bahrain for Operation Enduring Freedom.

A deployment ceremony for the unit is set to be held Thursday afternoon at the UW Arena-Auditorium in Laramie.

The Wyoming unit received federal mobilization orders for 400 days to conduct base security operations. The unit will receive more than one month of pre-deployment training at Camp Shelby, Miss., followed by nine months in Bahrain, a small island country near the western shores of the Persian Gulf.
