More than 200 members of the West Virginia National Guard and US Army Reserve have been called up to support the national military.

About 20 members of the Guard's 130th Airlift Wing in Charleston will be deployed to support missions in Kosovo and the enforcement of the no-fly zone over Iraq.

Governor Bob Wise says the guardsmen will be deployed for 90 days. More than 180 Army reservists from north-central West Virginia have been activated to support the homeland defense effort, Operation Noble Eagle.

Civilian spokesman Jack Gordon says the Army Reserve activation includes 163 soldiers from the 363rd Military Police Company in Grafton, 20 from Detachment 101st Platoon in Jane Lew and 40 reservists from Pittsburgh's Detachment 202nd Platoon. All the reservists will report to Fort Dix, New Jersey, this week.
