AUGUSTA, Maine — A Maine National Guard unit will be sent to Afghanistan next year.

Major General John W. Libby announced Saturday that about 177 soldiers of the 1136th Transportation Company will be deployed in early 2010.

The unit is stationed in Bangor, Calais and Sanford. It will be assigned to provide security at military bases.

Another unit, the 133rd Engineer Battalion, already had been notified that it will train in Germany this summer, in preparation for deployment to Iraq next year.
