DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The head of the Iowa National Guard will address a joint session of the General Assembly.
 
Major General Timothy Orr will deliver the annual "Condition of the Guard" speech Wednesday morning in the Iowa House of Representatives. The speech is intended to update lawmakers on the work of the Iowa Army National Guard.
 
Topics in the speech could include readiness, mobilizations, operations, future initiatives and community support.
 
There are 9,400 National Guard soldiers and airmen in Iowa.  Orr told lawmakers last year that overseas demands had decreased since President Barack Obama announced that the United States would withdraw troops from Afghanistan by 2014.
