More than 120 National Guard military police are the first West Virginia reservists activated for duty in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

Governor Wise's office says President Bush called up 33 soldiers from Moundsville and 91 from Martinsburg Monday. They are part of the 157th Military Police Company.

Wise spokeswoman Amy Shuler Goodwin says the reservists will leave soon for Fort Benning, Georgia, where they will get their next assignment.

Governor Wise is scheduled to join in ceremonies sending off the troops from their hometowns.
