Last month, President Obama announced the end of combat operations in Afghanistan.  Some news organizations went so far as to say the war was over.

But for soldiers and their families from the Army Reserves’ 363rd Military Police Company – headquartered in Grafton, WV - the war isn’t over.  This spring, some of these soldiers will be deploying to Afghanistan.
