Michigan Guard Unit Prepares for Iraq Deployment

By  | 

An Owosso military unit is gearing up for their upcoming war deployment.

The 144th Military Police Company will head to Iraq where their members will partner with, and train the Iraqi police force.

Most military units have six-to-eight months to prepare for war deployment. However, the 144th has to get ready in about seven weeks.

The unit will leave out of Battle Creek next Thursday to train in New Jersey for two months.

Then they will then head to the Middle East.
