Five-year-old Maddie Lovell, right, clings to her father, U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Jacob Lovell, of 585th Military Police Company, during a welcome home ceremony, at Marysville High School, in Marysville, Ohio, Aug. 13, 2010.
Lovell and about 170 other Soldiers, of 585th Military Police Company returned home, from the unit’s first deployment, in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, after training over 500 Iraqi Police officers, conducting anti-terrorism and force protection missions, and providing Provost Marshall law enforcement, in Iraq’s Anbar Province (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Sean Mathis/Released).

PS: Lovell… what an appropriate last name. 🙂
