Virginia Based National Guard Company Returns Home
RICHMOND, Va. - About 130 soldiers from a Manassas-based Virginia Guard military police unit are returning to Virginia after serving in Iraq since December 2008.
Guard officials say the 266th Military Police Company is scheduled to return Thursday. The unit is made up of soldiers from across Virginia.
The soldiers operated throughout Iraq as part of a team that trained, mentored and coached more than 1,000 Iraqi Police officers. They also conducted numerous missions and combat patrols across the country.
During their tour, soldiers from the unit earned 21 Bronze Star Medals, four received Combat Action Badges and one received a Purple Heart.

What a week it was for the Republican party of Virginia. Seems as if everyday a new announcement hits the streets concerning this trio of Bob McDonnell, Lt. Governor Bill Bolling and Ken Cuccinelli. With less than 40 days to go before election day, I received a great email summary from Ed Gillespie recounting the week that was. Including former Democratic Governor Doug Wilder refusing to endorse Deeds. Here are some excerpts:
" On Wednesday, Bob was endorsed by The Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce; on Thursday, the Fraternal Order of Police; and this morning the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce added their name to the long list of people and organizations supporting Bob McDonnell and his plans to create jobs in every corner of Virginia.
In an op-ed piece for The Washington Post Wednesday, our opponent finally came clean with voters that his first act if elected will be to raise taxes on Virginians. The Washington Post editorial page noted, “R. Creigh Deeds, the Democrat running for governor in Virginia, has now unequivocally committed himself to support higher taxes…,” The Washington Post (September 24, 2009).
Lt. Governor Bill Bolling and Senator Ken Cuccinelli are pressing their opponents for LG and AG on whether they support Deeds’ call to raise taxes on Virginians, and the issue will infuse every race for the House of Delegates from here on out.
Today’s campaign coverage is dominated by former Democratic Governor Doug Wilder refusing to endorse Deeds, telling the Washington Times that Deeds’s desire to raise taxes in a weak economy “doesn’t show leadership and responsibility to me.”
Newspapers from The Roanoke Times to The Virginian-Pilot to The Richmond Times-Dispatch to the Waynesboro News Virginian have lambasted Deeds for running an “overwhelmingly negative” campaign, airing “deceitful” television spots, promoting an “outright lie”, and for the fact that he has “put forward absolutely no concrete set of proposals on any of the critical issues in this race, not transportation, not education, not economic development ... not a one." (You’ll be seeing some of these quotes on your TV screen starting today)
Entering the final month of the campaign we had $1.4 million MORE in cash on hand than the Deeds campaign, a significant advantage.
Our grassroots activists are enthusiastic, walking neighborhoods, phoning voters, planting yard signs and knocking on hundreds of thousands of doors. As of late September, they have already nearly doubled the number of doors knocked on by our party during last year’s Presidential election here in Virginia.
Bob, Bill and Ken are running as a unified ticket, and working closely with our candidates for House of Delegates.
Bob is over 50 in the latest Washington Post poll, taken AFTER a wave of negative attacks from the Deeds campaign about a decades old graduate school paper. And a Research 2000 poll reported on by The Washington Post found Bob up 50-43, basically unchanged from August. And every poll finds our voters to be more motivated and enthusiastic than Deeds’ backers. We’ve always known that after Labor Day, this race was going to tighten, and it’s likely to tighten more in October as a lot of self-identified Independents who tend to vote Democrat come home, but the fundamentals of the race remain strongly in Bob’s favor.

Well, the week that was, was very nice!
