BILLINGS - More than 100 Montana soldiers are back on American soldier after serving in Afghanistan since last June.
This week, 120 soldiers from the Montana Army National Guard's 484th Military Police Company, headquartered in Malta, safely arrived in Fort Bliss, Texas to continue their demobilization process. The soldiers were involved in a training mission to the Afghanistan National Police for Operation Enduring Freedom in the Afghanistan Theater of operations.
They deployed in the beginning of June 2012.
"We are very excited to have the soldiers of the 484th Military Police Company safely back in the US from deployment to Afghanistan," said Major General Matt Quinn, Adjutant General for the Montana National Guard, in a news release. "These soldiers have done an outstanding job over the past nine months and we are extremely proud of them. Our priority now is returning them to their families and employers back in Montana who have supported them so well throughout the entire deployment process."
The soldiers are expected to arrive in Billings in roughly two weeks.
