N.D. Guard members help in Haiti

Twenty-one members of the North Dakota National Guard are helping with humanitarian and construction work in Haiti.

Soldiers from the 191st Military Police Co. are spending three weeks providing force protection for medical personnel and those constructing a base camp about 95 miles north of Port au Prince, near Gonaives, Haiti, according to a release from the state National Guard. 

The military police have also done convoy security missions from Port au Prince to the border and the base camp. They also have served as personal security details for medical readiness training exercise staff as they move into position and prepare for their humanitarian mission.
