At least 38 local families will be without a loved one this Christmas.  It turns out a unit of the Nevada Army Guard is mobilizing for a one year deployment to Afghanistan.

The 137th is a military police detachment. They are MPs who will protect soldiers from criminal threats while in Afghanistan. 

Governor Sandoval made a special trip to the Aliante Hotel Tuesday to see them off.
