    Approximately 160 Soldiers assigned to the Pennsylvania Army National Guard’s 28th Military Police Company returned from deployment to the Middle East in support of Operation Spartan Shield July 10, 2019. The company, which deployed in early October 2018, is part of the 165th Military Police Battalion, 55th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade, 28th Infantry Division.

    The 28th Military Police Company provided security and customs support in nearly a dozen countries in Southwest Asia. Operating in one of the most dynamic regions of the world, their presence enhanced security cooperation and provided vital reassurance to our partners and allies in the region.

    “I am extremely excited to have the soldiers of the 28th Military Police Company back home in Pennsylvania,” said Lt. Col. Brad Pierson, commander of the 165th Military Police Battalion. “They have achieved exceptional results and have been outstanding representatives for the Pennsylvania Army National Guard and the 165th Military Police Battalion.”

    The company was established in 1964 as the 4th Military Police and Security Platoon, and designated as the 28th Military Police Company in 1965. The company deployed to Iraq in 2007. In 2010 through 2013, members of the 28th Military Police Company deployed to Afghanistan as part of the joint Police Operational Mentoring and Liaison Team, along with armed forces from our state partner, Lithuania, and worked with the Afghan national security forces.
