933rd Military Police Company Welcomed Home from Deployment

On March 9 the Illinois National Guard held a welcome home ceremony for the 933rd Military Police Company and their family members at the College of Lake County, in Grayslake, Illinois. 

The 933rd Military Police company deployed to U.S. Southern Command Area of Responsibility from January 2023 to November 2023.  

“The work we did was an important lasting piece of our history,” said Staff Sgt. Samantha Pody, with the 933rd. 

After the deployment ceremony, the 933rd Company was provided access to resources aimed at helping the Soldiers integrate into their lives back at home. Booths were posted outside the ceremony hall such as the Yellow Ribbon Program, counseling resources, and education benefits. 

“Take advantage of our resources to reintegrate back because it is not easy to do that,” said Maj. Gen. Rodney Boyd, the Assistant Adjutant General - Army and Commander of the Illinois Army National Guard.”
