MPs home from Iraq

The 571st Military Police Company will have a welcome home ceremony 1 p.m. Monday at Soldiers Field House, following their return to Fort Lewis from 15 months in Iraq on Jan. 21.

The post didn’t open up for any live coverage of the MPs return although there was a quick story in the Northwest Guardian.

The 150-soldier company went to Iraq in November 2006 and spent most of its deployment in dangerous Diyala Province, training more than 6,100 Iraqi police officers. They lost four soldiers during the deployment.
