The Pentagon has ordered an active-duty battalion of military police soldiers from Fort Bragg, North Carolina to deploy to the Washington, D.C. area as the city braces for more violent demonstrations.
CNN was among the first to report the deployment order for between 200 and 250 MPs from Bragg. A Pentagon official confirmed to Military.com that the MPs are from the XVIII Airborne Corps.
該部署命令要從布拉格保調動200到250名憲兵，「有線電視新聞網」 是最早報導上情的媒體。五角大廈一 名官員向「美國軍事新聞網站」證實，這些憲兵會由美國陸軍第18空降軍派遣。
The official did not specify what orders the MPs had been given. ABC reported, citing a Defense official, that the troops were being sent into the D.C. region but only on standby capacity, in the event that they are needed.
