Iowa Guard unit returns home from Iraq

Approximately 130 soldiers from the 186th Military Police Company will return today from its recent deployment to Ira. A homecoming ceremony for the returning soldiers is scheduled for tonight at 7 p.m. at Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Des Moines.

The Johnston-based Iowa Army National Guard unit finished its second tour as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The unit was mobilized in Nov. 2007 and after undergoing additional training at Fort Dix, N.J., the unit, which provides security and law enforcement support, was assigned to the Central Command theater of operations and arrived in Iraq in Jan. 2008.

During its second tour in Iraq, the 186th MP was responsible for transporting 4,000 detainees; providing a law enforcement presence in the Strategic Debriefing Center; conducting detainee operations at Remembrance II, the Taji Theater Internment Facility Reconciliation Center; and transportation missions in support of Task Force 134’s juvenile re-integration school.

The 186th MP Company was previously mobilized from 2003-2004 for Operation Iraqi Freedom. They were also mobilized in 1995-96 in support of Operation Joint Endeavor (Bosnian peacekeeping operations), and in 1990-1991, when they deployed to the Persian Gulf in support of Operation Desert Storm.

Last Monday I was sitting at my desk doing my work when the building's PA system came on the line. The President of the Company just wanted to publicly thank the Vets working at the company and informed them that, while not scheduled, all vets would get Tuesday (Veteran's Day) off with pay as a "Thank You" for their service to our country and protecting our freedoms.

He also started a website a few weeks ago to allow the public to write their thanks to current and past troops for their efforts in protecting our rights. It's located at: http://www.windycitynovelties.com/blessings-banner.asp
After enough time has been given to write messages he's going to print the humongous thank you note as a vinyl banner and send it to the troops abroad.

They might be far away, but they're close to our thoughts.

Thank you to all current and past service men/women out there. While I might not always agree with why we are involved in military action, I will always appreciate the dedication and service you show towards our country and your devotion to protecting our freedom.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
