OSHKOSH — About 130 Wisconsin soldiers are set to fly out this week on a security mission to Afghanistan.

The soldiers are members of the Army National Guard 1157th Transportation Company. They have been training at Camp Shelby in Mississippi.

This tour is expected to last nine months, which means the soldiers will likely spend Christmas overseas.
