More Troops Coming Home

Members of The Wisconsin National Guard's 32nd Military Police Company are expected home by this Thursday.

The company's 150 troops are returning to Wisconsin after serving 14 months in Iraq. They helped train the new civilian Iraqi Police Force and provided security in and around Baghdad.

An official says the unit suffered more injuries from hostile action than any other Wisconsin National Guard unit since WWII.

That includes the death of SPC Michelle Witmer of New Berlin who died during an ambush in Baghdad in April.
