Iowa National Guard members train for deployment


W. LAFAYETTE, IN (KWWL) -- 45 National Guard members from three states will be trained at Purdue University to help develop agribusinesses in Afghanistan.

Purdue said Thursday that members of Guard units from Iowa, Missouri and Nevada will receive training next week in fruit production, livestock production and health, and irrigation.

The training will be held in classrooms, at Purdue's Animal Science Research Center and the Throckmorton-Purdue Agricultural Center in southern Tippecanoe County.

An Indiana National Guard team received similar training at Purdue the week of June 28.
