A unit of the Georgia Army National Guard has been deployed to Afghanistan.

The 877th Engineering Company left out of Augusta early Sunday for a yearlong tour of duty in the country.

Officials say the more than 160 Guardsman will work on construction projects and land mine removal.

Many of the Guardsman have spent time in Iraq, but for most it’s the first deployment to Afghanistan.
