Newton guardsman returns from Central American deployment
186th MP Co. provided security to U.S., Honduran soldiers on missions
Led by a bagpiper from the Mackenzie Highlanders, the last group of soldiers from the 186th Military Police Company were led into the Cloud Room on the second floor of the Des Moines International Airport main terminal for a welcome home ceremony Thursday evening.
Right behind the bagpiper was the unit’s commanding officer, Capt. Chad Wallway of Newton, fresh off his first deployment as a commander. Upon his return to Iowa, he said he was proud of the men and women under his command.
“Most people, when they hear the word ‘deployment’ think of Iraq or Afghanistan, but this was a deployment, too,” he said. “It wasn’t in a combat zone, but they did an awesome job, and they deserve recognition for that.”
