08/25/13 - DVIDS - Soldiers arrive in US after 10month Cuba deployment
FORT BLISS, Texas - About 30 North Dakota Army National Guard soldiers with
the 191st Military Police Company are back in the United States this
afternoon after having arrived in Fort Bliss, Texas, shortly after noon
local time there (MDT).
A formal send-off for the soldiers took place Oct. 27 and, after a month of
mobilization training, they arrived in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in late
November. The guardsmen fell under the command of Lt. Col. Mark Tibor, of
Bismarck, N.D., and deputy commander Maj. William Nels, of Surrey, N.D., as
well as 1st Sgt. Dean Richter, of Bismarck, the group's senior enlisted
leader. The North Dakota Guardsmen worked alongside military police
officers from elsewhere in the U.S. to provide security and support at the
Joint Task Force Guantanamo detention camp.
"The members of the 191st Military Police Company did an outstanding job
while deployed to Cuba, and we are happy that they are safely back in the
United States," said Gov. Jack Dalrymple. "These soldiers performed an
important mission as part of Joint Task Force Guantanamo, and we look
forward to thanking them for their honorable service when they return home
to North Dakota and their families."
Maj. Gen. David Sprynczynatyk, North Dakota adjutant general, traveled to
Fort Bliss to welcome the soldiers as they deplaned.
"These North Dakota Guardsmen and their counterparts from across the U.S.
did a phenomenal job of conducting an extremely important and evolving
mission on the forefront of the global war on terrorism," he said. "We are
thrilled to have them back on U.S. soil and will do our best to get them
back home to their families and friends as soon as possible."
The soldiers will conduct post-mobilization processing at Fort Bliss before
returning home. The North Dakota National Guard Public Affairs Office will
provide return times and dates as it becomes available.
