Forty-five members of the Vermont Air National Guard are headed to Saudi Arabia where they will help protect a military base.
The guard says a deployment ceremony will be held tomorrow at the Air National Guard base in South Burlington for the members of the 158th Security Forces Squadron.
The guard members will get two and a half weeks of training in Texas before heading to Saudi Arabia.
The Guard says the mission will be to "support security operations" at a location in eastern Saudi Arabia.
The airmen are expected back in Vermont in November.
