LATHAM - Two New York Army National Guard units are being deployed to Kuwait.

One hundred eighty soldiers will gather for a mobilization ceremony Saturday morning at the Shaker High School gymnasium in Latham.

They'll first head to Fort Hood, Texas and then to Kuwait later this month.

Once there, they will provide army aviation support to American forces stationed there.
