(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Two Utah Army Reserve units are getting ready for deployment.

Sunday, about 50 soldiers and their families were briefed about what their mobilization will entail.

The soldiers with the 395th Finance Battalion and the 117th Chaplain Detachment are leaving Wednesday for training in Fort Carson where they'll be for a few weeks before heading to the Middle East.

The units provide services ranging from medical logistics to supplying material to engineer support, hospitals, personnel services and public affairs.

Their deployment could last up to 18-months.
