BOZEMAN -

The first Montana Army National Guard Unit of 2014 left for a mission in Afghanistan today.

It was an emotional day as soldiers of the Montana Army National Guard's 143rd Military Police Company said good-bye to family and friends. For now, the 35 soldiers are heading to Fort Dix in New Jersey for six weeks to complete their final training.

Major Tim Crowe, the Montana National Guard Chief of Public Affairs explained that, "It's collective training. It's the final training they do as a unit together, their final preparations to the mission they have been assigned."

The Unit's mission is a nine month tour doing police work in Afghanistan. Governor Steve Bullock was also there, to shake the hand of each and every soldier that left today. He says it's extremely important that we support every soldier who sacrifices their lives for our freedom.
