Leesburg, VA (February 13, 2015) – Michael Gregory recently returned to work with the Town of Leesburg Streets Division after spending seven months in Kuwait and the United Arab Emon active duty with the 374th Military Police Company.
While overseas, Sgt Gregory served as a Customs Border Clearance Agent, clearing U.S. personnel and equipment for return to the United States. According to Gregory, the agents were mostly concerned with preventing the introduction of invasive plants and parasites into the United States through the transport of agricultural products.
This deployment was Gregory’s second; he was deployed to Bagram Air Base in 2002 and 2003.
Gregory was scheduled to return to the United States in February 2015, but the deployment was reduced by two months. As a result, he returned home in time to celebrate Christmas with his family. He returned to work on January 12, 2015.
“We are very happy to have Mike home safe from his deployment and back on the job,” said Kaj Dentler, Leesburg’s Town Manager. “We are proud of Mike’s service to the country and honored to have been able to provide him with the peace of mind that his job with the Town was secure while he was gone.”
