National Guard troops are preparing to go defend the U.S.-Mexico border.

They ship out next month for a year-long deployment.

Their mission will be to look out for illegal border crossers and smugglers, as well as assisting with criminal investigations.

The troops will be armed, but they can only use their weapons in self-defense.
