The units have a total of just over 500 members and take the number of Iowa Guard members activated to 15-hundred. They are — the 11-68th Transportation Company out of Red Oak, Perry and Audubon; the 186th Military Police Company from Camp Dodge; the 185th Rear Operations Center from Jefferson and Company D, 109th Aviation, based in Boone. All units are being ordered to federal duty for one, possibly, two years.
