PLYMOUTH â€” This spring, local soldiers from the Plymouth National Guard 301st MP unit will be coming home from a deployment that began in January 2012.
Angela Drake, wife of Plymouth resident Sergeant Scott Drake, is heading up an effort to throw a â€śthank youâ€ť party for the soldiers in March.
â€śWe donâ€™t know exactly when they are coming home, but they will all be home by the time we have the party,â€ť said Drake.

â€śIâ€™m here to address some concernsâ€¦and to show you that there are problems in our lakes,â€ť said Toth Tuesday.
