About 500 members of the Pennsylvania National Guard are preparing for deployment to Poland to take part in North Atlantic Treaty Organization exercises.

Gov. Tom Wolf and Adjutant General Tony Carrelli took part in send-off ceremonies March 16 in Milton for the members assigned to 3rd Squadron, 27th Armored Cavalry Regiment.

The unit heads for Texas for a culminating exercise and will then deploy to Poland to lead a multinational task force composed of soldiers from the United States, United Kingdom, Croatia and Romania.

Members have been preparing for the mission for more than a year. Training has included a rotation last summer at the National Training Center at Ft. Irwin, California.

The squadron headquarters is in Danville with subordinate Pennsylvania units in Williamsport, Wellsboro, Lewisburg and Lock Haven.
