FORT SILL, OKLA. — A deployment ceremony has been scheduled for about 80 Oklahoma National Guard soldiers who are heading for Afghanistan.

The ceremony is planned for Saturday morning at Rinehart Gymnasium at Fort Sill for Battery B, 1st Battalion, 158th Field Artillery, 45th Fires Brigade.

The soldiers will travel first to Fort Bliss, Texas, for post-mobilization training before leaving for Afghanistan where they will provide artillery support to coalition forces.

The Guard says the mobilization will not surpass one year.
