LOGAN, Utah (AP) — A U.S. Army Reserve unit based in Logan in northern Utah is deploying to Kuwait for a one-year deployment to the Middle East.

The Herald Journal reports the 103-member 890th Inland Cargo Transfer Co. is leaving to help support ongoing military operations in the Middle East.

Sgt. Liz Vargas says the unit will unload shipping containers from arriving ships for distribution to outlying locations and also transfer material from those locations to ports for outbound shipment.

Spc. Lorraine Gonzalez says the 890th has tripled in size during the last three years, growing from 30 soldiers in 2015 to the present count of 103.

Gonzales says many of the soldiers are Logan High School graduates but also soldiers who have transferred in from other Western states.
