Forty soldiers in a National Guard unit based in northwest Iowa are getting ready to head to Afghanistan.

KTIV reports that family members said goodbye to the members of the Army's 415th Military Police Detachment in Pocahontas on Saturday.

Sgt. Steven Oberg says he's excited about the deployment, but his sister Caroline Oberg says she's worried about her brother's safety.

This will be the unit's third deployment to Afghanistan in the past five years. The soldiers fly out of Des Moines Sunday for 10 weeks of training before returning to Afghanistan.
