    Maryland Reserve company ends tour of duty, but 5 remain in Iraq.

    A soldier from the 372nd Military Police Company, based in Cresaptown, Md., receives an emotional greeting at Fort Lee, Va. The reservists' overseas tour of duty was extended twice. (Marvin Joseph -- The Washington Post)

    I think the definition of the word "company" here is:
    A subdivision of a military regiment or battalion that constitutes the lowest administrative unit. It is usually under the command of a captain and is made up of at least two platoons.
