SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Sixty Utah Army Reserve soldiers were called to active duty Saturday, and can expect to be deployed for up to a year.

The three units called to active duty were the 395th Finance Battalion, the 117th Chaplain Detachment and the 889th Transportation Detachment, all of Salt Lake City.

Exactly when and where the three Utah units will be deployed will not be released, but they can be stationed anywhere in the world, U.S. Army Reserve officials said.

"Over the next few days and weeks until the unit deploys, the units will make sure they have all their ducks in a row," said Anthony Martinez, a spokesman for the 96th Regional Readiness Command. "They'll be making sure that their personnel files, medical records, equipment and training is all in order and that their family and personal affairs are taken care of."
