After nearly a dozen years of war and scores of deployments, the Maryland National Guard is sending its last soldiers to Afghanistan - even as the killing of a U.S. general this week underscores the continuing volatility of the country and the NATO mission there. More than 100 members of the Maryland Guard's 1100th Theater Aviation Sustainment Maintenance Group landed in Kuwait on Wednesday, the day after Maj. Gen. Harold J. Greene was shot to death at Afghanistan's national military academy in Kabul.

The 50-plus cops sent to the downtown and Inner Harbor on summer weekends are indeed finding criminals. Last weekend alone (Thursday night through early Sunday), they made 40 arrests, including 10 for drugs and two for guns. Police released the stats as the debate over how to combat crime in the city's premier tourist attraction continues, with two state lawmakers now saying the city should admit its overwhelmed and ask for state police intervention. Read more details about that plea, and the city's stern rejection, in today's story . Two of the arrests made last weekend were for guns.

Jon Walker's friends were looking forward to watching him reunite with his beloved German shepherd, Zara, when he returns from a year-long Army deployment in Afghanistan later this month. But his dog bolted into a patch of woods while playing catch with a dogsitter in Crownsville last week and a non-stop effort to find her has proven fruitless, leaving them suspicious that there might be more to this than meets the eye. “Jon is devastated,” says his friend Heather Cappelli, who's spearheading the effort to find Zara.

Navy Lt. Jordon C. Sims, whose wife, Megan, is the daughter of Marylou Donhauser of Pylesville, and Michael Donhauser Jr. of Bel Air, and sailors from the Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS Cheyenne (SSN 773), departed Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam for a scheduled six-month deployment in the Western Pacific region. The crew had anxiously waited for the day to deploy after having spent months preparing and training for the missions they will soon undertake. From different weather patterns to deployed operational tasking, Cheyenne will face many challenges during deployment that are not normally encountered in the local operating area.

The folks over at Real Warriors posted an interesting list earlier this week, of " 8 Battlefield Skills That Make Reintegration Challenging ," for service members recently returning from deployments. (Real Warriors is an initiative from the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury.) In our house, I'd say reintegration is going pretty well. (My husband came home from Afghanistan in March.) But still, this would have been a good list to see before the end of the deployment.

As the Maryland National Guard prepares for what could be its final deployment to Afghanistan, its commander sees a "pivotal point" in the nation's history. More than a decade of deployments to Afghanistan, Iraq and other battlegrounds since Sept. 11, 2001, has produced a highly skilled and deeply experienced generation of warriors. But with the United States out of Iraq and planning to leave Afghanistan, Maj. Gen. James Adkins sees a new challenge. "Many of the soldiers that are serving now have known only war," he said Thursday from Fort A.P. Hill in Virginia, where members of the 244 t h Engineer Co. are training for a deployment starting later this year.

A year ago today, my husband left for Afghanistan -- or at least the first leg of his long journey there to begin his deployment with the Marine Corps. He's been home for five months now, and I'm feeling reflective about what the past 12 months have taught me. I was thinking this would end up being a list of the lessons learned from that time in our lives, and the time since. But it all kept coming back around to this: Take nothing for granted. We are the lucky ones, to all be home and healthy and happy.

Chief Warrant Officer Joshua Chason held his 3-week-old daughter, Kuiper, as long as he could as she slept peacefully. The next time he picks her up, she will be a year older. Chason is part of a 60-member Maryland Army National Guard unit that deployed Friday from Aberdeen Proving Ground for a yearlong mission in Afghanistan. He and his wife, Andrea, had planned the birth of their second child after Chason's planned deployment to Iraq was canceled, but his unit was quickly rescheduled for a stint in Afghanistan.

It wasn't until my husband held our son Aaron for the first time that I realized I'd been holding my breath - for months. In August, Judah had hugged me, 20-something-weeks' pregnant, and our 3-year-old goodbye before leaving for a tour in Afghanistan. Nearly five months later, he'd watched via Skype from the district center in Musa Qal'eh as Aaron was born, four days past his Christmas Day due date - at 1:58 p.m. by my watch, 2328 by Judah's. Since that day, I'd been staring at the baby, who wears my husband's face in miniature, and marveling at their similarities - the long eyelashes, the expression in sleep, the chin, the smirk - but refusing to fully acknowledge the fear that I'd never see those two versions of the same face together.

Law enforcement agencies across Maryland are no longer required to collect and report the race of drivers in traffic stops to the state because legislators didn't notice a 3-year-old law expiring. Police, sheriff's departments and other similar agencies also no longer have to provide the state with information about their SWAT deployments as another expiring law had stipulated. The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland decried the lapses, especially the lifting of the requirement to track traffic stops by race.

Come Monday, Duke's Casey Carroll hopes to play the game he loves while saluting the sacrifices he and others have made for their country. When better than Memorial Day for a former Army Ranger to end his college lacrosse career in the NCAA championship game? "That [scenario] would be great for so many reasons - but, of course, it's one game at a time," said Carroll, 29, a starting defenseman for the top-seeded Blue Devils, who play No. 5 Denver in the Division I semifinals at 1 p.m. Saturday at M&T Bank Stadium.

Here's a question. If -- and this is a big if -- the United States could dispatch a swarm of heretofore secret super-drones to find and kill every member of the Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram, would you be in favor of doing it? I'll even modify it for those of you who are squeamish about killing terrorists who slaughter men, women and children with abandon. What if the drones could simply paralyze the terrorists long enough for the U.S., or the Nigerians or some duly authorized force of U.N.-sanctioned "good guys," to apprehend them?

A National Guardsman who was charged in the Baltimore jail smuggling case while deployed to Afghanistan was arrested Tuesday in Waco, Texas, the U.S. Attorney's Office said. Derrick Jones, 41, a K-9 officer, was charged in the sprawling case last month, accused of smuggling phones and other contraband for Black Guerrilla Family gang members incarcerated at the Baltimore City Detention Center. But before the charges were filed Jones had shipped to Afghanistan with his Maryland National Guard unit.

Visitors to Baltimore's downtown on summer weekends will see up to 50 additional police officers, a show of force aimed at preventing a repeat of St. Patrick's Day, when hundreds of youths battled and a tourist was beaten — scenes the mayor described as "a black eye for the city. " Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake toured the streets around the Inner Harbor and downtown for two hours Friday, the first night of increased police presence. During the late-night walk, she made her first public comments since reports that the disturbances on March 17 were far more extensive and more violent than police had initially described.

As FBI agents investigating the Black Guerrilla Family gang closed in on a new round of suspects in the Baltimore jail corruption case this fall, one of their targets packed his bags and left the country. Derrick Jones, a corrections department K-9 officer, was shipping out to Afghanistan with the Maryland National Guard. Now authorities are faced with the unusual challenge of how to get him back to Baltimore for trial. One of 14 corrections officers named in charges unsealed last month, Jones stands out because of his long military record as well as his seniority at the Baltimore City Detention Center.

Wherever Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler goes, he is followed by a 27-year-old former rocket scientist with a video camera and a tripod. Since April, Gansler has been tailed at news conferences and policy summits, along parade routes, at coffee shops, in restaurants and around college campuses. Every public comment and nearly every conversation afterward has been recorded by full-time political tracker Jeff Moring and sent back to the campaign headquarters of Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, Gansler's chief rival in the Democratic primary for governor.
