156 members of the 113th Military Police Company of the Mississippi Army National Guard returned from a 13-month deployment to Iraq Tuesday morning. 

They had been training Iraqi Military Police personnel about 60 miles north of Baghdad. 

They were given a hero's welcome at their National Guard Armory where an estimated 1,000 people turned out to welcome them home. 

They had been escorted in a convoy of three buses from Camp Shelby near Hattiesburg.
