Wis. 32nd MP Company Home From Guantanamo Deployment

More than 120 Wisconsin Army National Guard soldiers of the 32nd Military Police Company returned to Wisconsin on April 13th, following a nine-month deployment in support of Joint Task Force Guantanamo. Located at US Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, the Joint Task Force’s primary mission was operating the detainee facilities housing terrorists captured on the battlefield – including the so-called “9/11 co-conspirators” who plotted and supported the September 11, 2001 terror attacks in the United States.
The 32nd MP Company served as part of a battalion assigned to various responsibilities in secure detention facilities, ensuring the safe, humane, and transparent care and custody for more than 45 law-of-war detainees at the Defense Department’s only strategic detention operations facility.
During the course of their deployment, the 32nd MP soldiers also conducted custody transfer of more than 20 detainees, in accordance with presidential executive orders.
The soldiers were welcomed home by Governor Scott Walker and others.
