TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas National Guard helicopter unit is deploying to Afghanistan to participate in a medical mission.

About 45 soldiers of Company G, 2nd Battalion, 135th Aviation Regiment are heading first to Fort Hood, Texas, for more training before deploying to Afghanistan.

The soldiers will provide evacuation support by flying wounded soldiers from the battlefield and moving patients among facilities for additional medical care. They will also transport medical personnel, equipment and supplies to various locations.

A deployment ceremony for the unit was scheduled Monday at the Army Aviation Support Center at Forbes Field in Topeka.
