About 15 members of the North Dakota Army National Guard's 191st Military Police Company will return home today after an almost yearlong mission in Afghanistan. The Soldiers comprise about half of the unit's deployed members. The remaining Soldiers will return sometime next month.

Media representatives and the public are invited to greet the returning Soldiers. Please refer to details at the end of this advisory.

The unit is led by 1st Lt. John Mazur, of Pingree, North Dakota, and the senior noncommissioned officer-in-charge, Sgt. 1st Class Cody Johnson, of Menoken, North Dakota. Nearly half the unit has served on previous North Dakota National Guard deployments.

Members of the 191st Military Police Company provided protective service detail and secure transportation to Resolute Support Headquarters staff while assigned to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in Afghanistan. The Soldiers hail from 20 communities across North Dakota, Minnesota and South Dakota.
