CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming Army National Guard soldiers deploy this week for a peacekeeping mission in Kosovo.

Community members are invited to attend a ceremony for the 297th Infantry Regiment on Tuesday afternoon at Star Valley High School in Afton.

National Guard officials say this is the first time the Wyoming infantry unit is deploying since organizing in 2016.

The unit's first stop will be at Fort Bliss in Texas for additional training.

The soldiers come from Colorado, Montana, Utah and Wyoming.
