Gov. Nixon spoke to the 185 members of the 1139th Military Police Company and their families in Harrisonville on Aug. 14 as the unit prepared for deployment to Iraq. Many of the Citizen-Soldiers in the 1139th had returned from deployment in Kosovo this past March. In Iraq, they will work in a supportive role of Iraqi security forces. The Governor told the troops that all of Missouri was proud of them, and that he knew they would fulfill their mission with distinction and honor.download
