SC National Guard Unit Returns From Afghanistan
The 133rd Military Police Company, which lost three soldiers in June, returned to Florence Sunday.
FLORENCE — A cheering crowd welcomed home members of the 133rd Military Police Company Sunday at Veterans Park in Florence.
“Our five are still healing,” company commander Capt. David Bryant told the crowd, according to a report in The State. “And our three, who gave everything they had … May we live the rest of our lives honoring them in everything we do.”
A memorial service to honor Rawl, Meador, Thomas and 23 other soldiers killed in action in the past year was planned for Monday.
The day Rawl, Meador and Thomas died was the bloodiest day of the Afghan war for the S.C. National Guard, according to The State.
