Fort Lewis, WA — The 508th Military Police Battalion headquarters and one of its subordinate companies will case their colors on Friday, Sept. 5, at 3 p.m., in preparation for the units’ upcoming deployment to Iraq.
About 150 Soldiers from the 508th MP Battalion’s Headquarters and Headquarters Company and the 67th Military Police Company will deploy to Camp Taji, later this month, where both units will support the Theater Internment Facility, in support of Task Force Military Police-North.
