Posted: Updated:

NEW CASTLE, Del. (AP) - The Delaware National Guard is saying goodbye to 175 members deploying to Afghanistan.
The National Guard is planning a departure ceremony for 11 a.m. Thursday at the Army Aviation Support Facility in New Castle. The National Guard's 153rd Military Police Company is scheduled to deploy for a 12 month tour. Their primary mission during their deployment will be to train their Afghan counterparts in security operations.
After Thursday's ceremony the group will head to New Jersey's Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst for training. The group will spend four to six weeks at the base before heading to Afghanistan.
The group is relieving Montana's 44th Military Police Company.
