About 120 soldiers from the Connecticut National Guard 143rd Military Police Company returned to Connecticut Wednesday, June 5, 2013, from Afghanistan.
A send-off ceremony for the unit was held in July 2012. In Afghanistan, the military police worked alongside the Afghan Uniformed Police to ensure law and order, provide maneuver and mobility support and area security, and gather intelligence.
Capt. James Locke of Manchester commands the unit.
The unit previously deployed to Iraq from 2003 to 2004. More than 450 Connecticut soldiers and airmen are currently mobilized and deployed in support of the operations in Afghanistan.
