Military Police Company honored for serving in Afghanistan

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum and National Guard leaders honored soldiers from the Upper Midwest who spent about a year serving in Afghanistan.

A special ceremony was held Sunday afternoon at the Armed Forces Reserve Center in Fargo for about 30 members of the North Dakota Army National Guard’s 191st Military Police Company. The soldiers are from 20 communities in North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota.

Burgum said it was also important to recognize and thank the families of the soldiers who spent so much time away. Sgt. First Class Tyson Mattson said his wife held the family together while he was serving.

The unit which provided protective service detail and secure transportation while assigned to NATO returned in December.
