FARGO, N.D. (AP) — About 30 North Dakota Army National Guard soldiers are gearing up for a year of duty in Cuba.

The soldiers with the 191st Military Police Company will join about 120 U.S. Army reservists as part of a much larger force at the U.S. Navy base in Guantanamo Bay. Their mission at the high-security prison will begin after they finish final training at Fort Bliss in Texas.

A send-off ceremony is scheduled Saturday at the Armed Forces Reserve Center in Fargo.
