National Guard Unit to Return From Afghanistan


DELAWARE CITY, Del. (AP) - The National Guard says Delaware City's 153rd Military Police Company will return home from Afghanistan some six to eight weeks early.

Guard spokesman Lt. Col. Len Gratteri said on Monday that it was not known why the 130-member unit will be returning next month instead of early December.

The unit left Delaware Jan. 3 for several weeks of pre-mobilization training. It has spent the past 6 1/2 months on the western side of Kandahar working with the local Afghan Uniform Police. The unit was supposed to spend nine full months in Afghanistan.

Gratteri says relatives have been notified by letter, but emphasized that mid-September is tentative.
