CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — More than 160 Wyoming National Guard members are preparing for deployment to the country of Bahrain.

The guard's 133rd Engineer Company based in Laramie will spend nine months on the deployment. The unit will provide security at a military base.

They will leave for Bahrain in June. But they undergo a two-week training session at Camp Guernsey this month and will have more training in Mississippi in April.
