Michigan Guard Troops Return

More than 100 members of the Michigan National Guard's 1775th Military Police Company have left Iraq after a 19-month tour in which one member was killed.

Some soldiers from the 120-member reserve unit had been in Iraq since January 2003 and had been assigned to customs missions and convoy escorts for U.S. soldiers.

Spc. Craig S. Frank, 24, of Lincoln Park died July 17 after his vehicle was attacked near Baghdad. He was hit in the back with a rocket-propelled grenade as his unit drove through Beiji. They were escorting a convoy coming from Kuwait.

Frank was studying education at Eastern Michigan University before his call-up.
