YUTAN, Neb. (WOWT) - Nebraska National Guard Soldiers are about to head out on a one-year deployment to the U.S. European Command area of responsibility.

According to the Nebraska National Guard, Gov. Jim Pillen and Nebraska National Guard Leaders gave remarks during a send-off ceremony Friday morning at the Atlas Readiness Center in Yutan.

Thirteen Nebraska Army National Guard Soldiers of Headquarters and Headquarters Troop, 1-134th Calvary are expected to serve a yearlong deployment to the U.S. European Command area of responsibility and will be stationed at a training center in Germany.
