Hey all I was digging through some archives looking for pics of my bike trip when I came across this link. My son serves in the Michigan National Guard, when his unit was stationed in Baghdad they made this video. These are our Michigan sons and daughters, 46th M.P. Co. Maybe you know some. All the footage is on the streets of Baghdad outside the wire. The got in some trouble for it, but the video was already out on the world wide web.

The 1776th in Taylor.

My son is in the 144th, Owosso. But he was in basic when the 144th deployed, he rear deployed and was attached to the 46th when he got out of AIT. He shipped out of Taylor, along with men/women from the 1775th, 1776th and the 144th.

The other day he told me that either the 1775th or the 1776th were being deployed to Afghanistan soon. Is that you?

I actually got out in 03' and I know they've been deployed since or have been attached to someone getting deployed, but I'm not sure when they're going again.
