Two National Guard units in Virginia may soon be called to active duty.
The 189th Engineer Company located in Big Stone Gap and the 222nd Quartermaster Detachment based in Staunton have been alerted for possible active federal service.
The mobilization would affect about 120 Virginia soldiers, who would go on active duty for at least one year.
The soldiers will undergo pre-mobilization processing at their home armories and Fort Pickett in early January.
The Staunton and Big Stone Gap units are making preparations in case they are called, but an alert does NOT mean the units will be mobilized.
