One-hundred-ten soldiers will take an Iowa flag with them as they wage America’s war on terrorism.The flag was presented Wednesday to members of the Davenport-based U.S. Army Reserve’s 339th Military Police Company. The presentation was made at a sendoff ceremony as the soldier’s families, Congressman Jim Leach and others looked on. The unit will be leaving this week for at least a year of active duty to guard prisoners of war and detainees. But the exact location of their work is not yet known. Their first stop will be Fort Dix, New Jersey for additional training. The unit was called to active duty on January fourth. Many of its members are police officers at area police departments.
