Colorado National Guard military police unit returns from deployment to Middle East

By Colorado National Guard Public Affairs

CENTENNIAL, Colo. – The Adjutant General of Colorado U.S. Army Brig. Gen. Laura Clellan and other Colorado National Guard senior leaders will welcome home about 30 members of the Colorado Army National Guard’s 220th Military Police Company Forward during a ceremony outside of the Denver Armory, May 2, 2021, at 2:00 p.m.

Family and friends will greet the Soldiers returning from a deployment to the Middle East during which the unit supported U.S. Central Command operations.

The Soldiers played an important role supporting ground troops in the CENTCOM area of responsibility.

“As we welcome these Soldiers home after their extended mobilization, we should remember the sacrifices they made while away from their families and jobs during the pandemic,” Clellan said.  “I ask that these Soldiers and their families use all of the resources available to them to reintegrate.  The Colorado National Guard Family is here for you.”

Following the terrorist attacks of Sep. 11, 2001, the 220th Military Police Company participated in combat deployments in 2003 and 2008.

In 2014, members of the 220th Military Police mobilized for one year to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

During this deployment, 220th members performed a variety of important missions in defense of our nation and coalition partners.

Having both a federal and state mission, the 220th has also served in support of civil authorities during several disasters. Unit members responded during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the Black Forest Fire in 2013, the Colorado Floods in 2013, and, most recently, the 2018 Spring Creek Fire in Southern Colorado.
