2020 Reunion
We trust that everyone remains healthy and safe. As we watched the last few months of COVID-19 unfold and wished that it would soon be behind us, it became obvious the impact was going to be with us for some time. We surveyed a sample of those members who have attended reunions in the past few years to assess their intent. The clear majority of that sample said they could not commit to attending the 2020 Reunion in Omaha. With the safety of our members in mind, it was clear we had to cancel the reunion this year. Being the adaptive leaders they are, Steve Andraschko, John Tarr and the Reunion Committee have adjusted our schedule to Omaha in 2021 and Montana in 2022.

Happy 245th Birthday!

This year, the United States Army pays tribute to 245 years of dedicated service to our Nation.

While it is fitting that we pause to recognize the achievements and contributions of our Soldiers and their Families, Army Civilians, Veterans, and retirees, we acknowledge that this Army Birthday will take place during a profoundly challenging time for America. Still, whatever challenge we face as a nation, the U.S. Army always answers the call to serve and defend. Our history of coming together to serve our communities with honor is part of the enduring fabric of America’s legacy.

Army Soldiers and Civilians embody the Army Values of Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage and are committed to the mission.

We thank our Soldiers and their families, Army Civilians, Veterans, and retirees for their extraordinary service and steadfast determination.

Thank you for your understanding and stay well and safe.

Generations of Patriots have dedicated themselves to the defense of our Country and to make us stronger and more resilient as a Nation.

Throughout our history, our Nation’s Veterans have kept us free, returned home, and continued to serve our Nation. And right now, all around our Country, Veterans serve as teachers, doctors, engineers, social workers, community leaders, first responders and elected officials. They continue to serve our communities by making positive contributions, building stronger futures, and inspiring future generations.

Each year, we set November 11th aside all across the country to celebrate and pay tribute to America’s Veterans for their devotion, patriotism, selfless service and sacrifice on behalf of us all.

Thank you and Happy Veterans Day to all of you.

Today we celebrate the 78th Anniversary of our Army’s Military Police Corps. On this date in 1941, the Army established the Military Police Corps as a permanent branch. This journey took over 160 years and saw the continuous evolution of Military Police capabilities to address the needs of supported commanders in each conflict from the Revolutionary War up to World War II.

Military Police Soldiers proved their value and contributions to battlefield success in every major military action in our history. As the Army today builds its readiness to conduct multi-domain operations and to maintain dominance in land combat, the Military Police Corps continues to explore effective organizational structures, training techniques, and equipment requirements needed to ensure our alignment with Army priorities and competitive edge against near peer threats. We have seen a steady increase in our responsibilities throughout our history and the trend will continue with future engagements as we address new and emerging threats. I am supremely confident our Military Police Corps will successfully answer every call to action.

On this special day, I would like to thank each of you, current and former Military Police Soldiers, for your diligent and selfless service and your contributions that shaped our Military Police Corps into the superbly professional organization it is today. I am proud and honored to serve with all of you. Thank you for your service and for continuing to help the Military Police Corps remain Ready, Relevant, and Responsive today and for years to come.

In closing I want to extend special thanks to those deployed Military Police, Soldiers and civilians far from loved ones and to the families and friends of members of our beloved Regiment who paid the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our Nation. Our motto “Assist, Protect, Defend” clearly exemplifies the unyielding commitment of the entire Military Police family.

Again, Happy 78th Birthday to our beloved Military Police Corps!

Golf and tours were the theme today. About two members took to the Cane Creek Golf Course on the former Fort McClellan. Another group toured the Anniston Army Depot. Unfortunately, they couldn't take any photos during the tour. But all agreed it was extremely worthwhile and very interesting. In the afternoon, a big group went to a wine tasting (with cheese!) at White Oak Vineyard. Another surprise - Alabama has wineries.

Tours and an evening mixer were the highlights of the day. Members were given a tour of FEMA's Center for Disaster Preparedness, led by Gary Milner. The evening mixer was poolside with a steel-drum music to lend that tropical vibe.

If you were stationed at Fort McClellan, you will remember Quintard Avenue and a stately mansion called the Victoria. It was a grand Queen Anne-style building that just seemed very imposing. It served primarily as a restaurant with valet parking, with additional hotel rooms built in the 1980's. In 2015, a new owner acquired the building and renamed it Hotel Finial. It also went through an eight-month renovation.

For most of us who only viewed the mansion from the avenue, we now get to stay and enjoy the history of the property.

Registration and running into old friends was the theme for Wednesday afternoon. The old Carriage House of the Hotel Finial provided the perfect setting to register into the hotel and reunion.

Chuck Whitehead and his team, and the staff of the Hotel Finial, are making this another reunion to remember!

Reunion team members are: John and Bess Valieant, Don and Janet King, Gary and Lark Milner, Dale Webb, and Joan McKinney.

Today is Peace Officers Memorial Day, and across the Nation, you will notice that our National Flags are flying at half-staff to honor those Peace Officers who gave their lives to protect ours.

President John F. Kennedy declared the first Peace Officers Memorial Day on May 15, 1962, as a tribute to peace officers and in honor of Peace Officers who, through their courageous deeds, lost their lives or became disabled in the line of duty. This day has been observed in our country annually ever since.

This year, the names of 371 officers killed in the line of duty are being added to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington, DC. These 371 officers include 158 officers who were killed during 2018, plus 213 officers who died in previous years but whose stories of sacrifice had been lost to history until now.

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial wall is in Washington, D.C. The wall features more than 19,000 names of Peace Officers who have died in the line of duty. This wall and event draw about 40,000 law enforcement officers and their families to Washington, D.C. annually.

154 members and their spouses and guests attended the dinner held on Saturday, 22 September. (Overall, the reunion had 159 attendees.) The venue was the distinguished Eisenhower Community Center at The Villages. The center is dedicated to the military members who served our country. The displays, all donated by residents of The Villages, provided a marvelous backdrop.

We managed to get a group photo (apologies to those cut off - group was too large!) and had to show both shots. There is always some who have to show school loyalties!

Saw this today. Good history and many on this page know Col Pike.
I just ran across this old photo last night of me reenlisting back in June 1973 when I was in the 526th MP Company, Ft. Meade, MD. Giving me the oath was LTC Charles R. Kelly, the Provost Marshal, who I just noticed is a member of RMPOA. I had been in the 6th Armored Cav at Ft. Meade when I applied for CID and LTC Kelly grabbed me up to work for him until my application went through. Though only with the PMO there for half a year I have great memories of LTC Kelly and all the others there.
What are the dates for the Omaha Reunion? I want to make sure we can come.
I am in Grad school and been retired for 2 years. I need an Organizational chart for MPs, preferably at BN level. Please send [email protected].

I am looking to located a past room mate and best man, Terance L. Hynes. I know that he was a DSG at Ft. Mac in 1985. Went on to the 82nd MPCO and participated in Urgent Fury as a SFC. He hailed from Chicago. Any info would be appreciated.

First, I want to thank you all for your service protecting and helping us! I come from a long line of law enforcement in my family and know you've seen things no one should have to see, you've hurt for those you can't help and you cry for the children who didn't make it. My heart goes out to you. Now, I would like to propose something to help our school kids be safe while they're trying to learn. Until those in power can quit debating and giving lip service, I would like to propose that a retired law enforcement officer, or a group of officers volunteer to guard the school doors, of course in body armor and helmets, to check bags and back packs to assure all who enter do not have a gun or weapon.of any kind Once the kids are safely inside, . the doors they should be locked and no one should be allowed in unless the video camera shows the staff they are supposed to be there. I know this is a lot to ask, but it would only take about an hour of your time to make sure the kids are protected. I honestly would do it if had the skills and instinct that you have, but I don't and would only be in the way...and most likely shot first, which would do absolutely no good! I will however, do any administrative duties that would be necessary to organize and maintain this movement. I'm I also proposed this to retired law enforcement personnel and also to our representatives. Hopefully they will eventually vote to pay for this type of protection, what's more important than protecting our children?! It's been a MONTH since devastating Florida shooting and what's been done??? NOTHING! We as citizens need to stand up and help these kids help themselves so they can feel safe in their school! The ONLY thing they should be worried about is the test they didn't study for! Please help if you can. Thank you for considering this. Blessings~
It is my sad duty to report that my old friend and former boss, LTC (Ret.) Jerry Gasko passed last night after suffering a heart attack. He is survived by his wife Jane who lives in Colorado Springs. After service in Viet Nam as a logistician, he served in a succession of MP assignments including at Brussels, Germany, Ft. Carson where I knew him, Ft. Leavenworth, and in Hawaii with the National Airborne Command Post. After retirement, he ably served the Colorado Department of Corrections where he was the second-ranking official. He was a good man.
I am a former MP. how does one join this group
