FORT BRAGG, N.C. — Soldiers from the 65th Military Police Company returned Tuesday to their Fort Bragg Army post Tuesday afternoon post after almost six months in earthquake-stricken Haiti.
About 120 soldiers were among the first units that flew to Haiti to help in recovery efforts after the massive earthquake on Jan. 12 that killed an estimated 200,000 people.
Soldiers from the 65th Military Police Company provided aid and assisted with the relocation of about 2,700 people. The soldiers also inspected outgoing equipment to ensure there were no custom violations.
