Homecoming ceremony set for Iowa soldiers serving overseas

DES MOINES (KWWL)-- A welcome home party for members of the Iowa National Guard serving overseas will take place Wednesday night.

130 soldiers will be honored at Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Des Moines.

The troops are members of 186th Military police company based out at Camp Dodge.

They mobiled a year ago, and have been in Iraq since January.

The company previously served in Iraq in 2003 and 2004, was deployed in Bosnia in 1995 and 1996, and served in the Persian Gulf region in 1990 and 1991 in support of Operation Desert Storm.
