(KWWL) -

A group of Iowa National Guard soldiers is preparing for a mission to the Middle East.

They were told about their deployment just hours before the suicide bombing in Turkey.

20 soldiers will first go to Fort Hood, Texas for additional training-- then will serve with the U.S. Central Command in the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia.

They leave for Texas next week.
