Happy Birthday to the Military Police Corps!
09/26/2021

Happy Birthday to the Military Police Corps!

Today is very special as we celebrate the 80th anniversary of the United States Army Military Police Corps. The Military Police Corps was established on 26 September 1941, during the middle of World War II. In the 80 years since, the Military Police Corps has filled a vital role in our Army protecting our communities, conducting policing, investigations, corrections, physical security, anti-terrorism, forensics and biometrics, and securing convoys and personnel in combat zones. Today we recognize the Military Police Corps for its many achievements and pay tribute to all those who have served and sacrificed for our nation.

As our Nation continues to face the uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic, we acknowledge the important role each of you has performed in force protection over the past year and a half. This year also marks the end of operations in Afghanistan after nearly two decades. The Military Police and our Department of the Army Civilian Law Enforcement professionals have completed a difficult mission and excelled in all aspects of their jobs. I would like to personally thank all of you and your Families for choosing to be a part of the Military Police Corps and upholding the values of our institution.

This year, we celebrate our brave Soldiers and Civilians – Active, Guard, and Reserve; past and present – who are willing to put themselves in harm’s way and make the ultimate sacrifice for our country during times of both peace and war. Also, please remember our deployed Soldiers and their Families as they continue to serve at the tip of the spear. SGM Freeman and I join our Army Senior leaders and a grateful nation in wishing the entire Military Police Corps a Happy 80th Birthday. Of the Troops, For the troops. People First! Winning Matters! - Sincerely, MGM - Provost Marshal General

Memorial Service, Day Four, 18 September

A tradition at the reunions, is to remember all those who have passed since the last reunion. This year that tradition was upheld by saying their names so that they will no be forgotten.

Colonel Steve Andraschko, USA Retired opened with service and then introduced a violinist, Ms. Melissa Holtmeier, who performed Ashokan Farewell.

Colonel Ted Spain, USA Retired gave the remarks for the service with COL John Mumma, USA Retired and LTC Curtis Wees, USA Retired reading the names, and COL John Davies, USA Retired rang the bell.

Amazing Grace filled the air with the hauting sounds of a bagpipe as played by a guest bagpiper.

Day Three, 17 September

One intrepid group of fourteen members started their day early by heading out to the Willow Lakes Golf Course. The weather started out cool but turned out to be great day to play golf. But what is a game of golf without some friendly competition for prizes? Our teams played well and the winners were recognized at the Saturday business meeting.

While the golfers were busy, another group took to the city tour bus of Ollie's Trollies. The tour guide, a retired local school teacher and noted local Omaha historian, led the group on an interesting tour of Omaha. The usual spots were noted but the 'real' history of the city came alive under our guide's deep appreciation for Omaha.

Day Two, 16 September

The day started with a wonderful spread of a breakfast at the hotel. And then the activities began. Most of the members opted for a tour of the Strategic Air Command Museum, while some did a city tour on Ollie's Trollies.

The SAC Museum was a great tour, lasting two hours, with informative and enthusiastic docents. After, we had lunch at Round The Bend, home of The Testicle Festival (!). From there the group headed to Soaring Wings Winery and Brewery. Of course, that was great.

Arriving back at the hotel, the Welcome Reception was held and the food was outstanding and never ending.

It was a great day with friends!

The 45th RMPOA Reunion has started! On Wednesday, 15 September, seventy-four members arrived for four days of tours, togetherness, memories and making new friends. The Embassy Suites at Downtown is the hub of activities and the Presidential Suite the true hub as our hospitality room.

COL Steve Andraschko, his wife Pam, and LTC Curtis Wees, his wife Lynne, are the hosts for this first reunion after a year down from COVID-19.

Please join in the remembrance and observation of Patriot Day. Twenty years ago, 11 September 2001, terrorists hijacked four American airplanes, resulting in the deaths of nearly 3,000 people. This event is marked as the most devastating terror attack to take place on American soil.

The images of that terrible day will remain with us always. As those terrorist attacks were meant to break our American spirit, we emerged even stronger and more unified. The active component, National Guard and Army Reserve responded immediately and continue to remain stewards in defeating terrorism. Patriot Day joins other historic observances that binds our nation together. We recognize that even though this horrific event happened 20 years ago, the threat posed by terrorists throughout the world has not diminished and we all must remain vigilant.

Although Patriot Day is not a public holiday. I encourage everyone to find time to commemorate the lives of those who died and the families affected in the 2001 terrorist attacks. Additionally, a moment of silence for the victims of the 9-11 terror attacks will begin at 8:46 a.m. Eastern time, which is when the first plane struck the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Thank you and your families for the daily sacrifice of serving our great nation. People First! Winning Matters! -BGM

Some of our members have received their copy of the Fall/Winter issue of the DIGEST but many members haven't received it yet. The magazine was mailed by first-class rate on 5 January.

The magazine had a story about our Zoom reunion meeting back in September 2020. It was rather successful and a social meeting was planned for 26 February 2021. Due to the magazine not getting into the hands of our members, many might not know about the planned Zoom social.

An email has been sent out to our members about the Zoom meeting. Please share the information and if you have not received an email from RMPOA, please contact us. The info on the Zoom meeting will be sent.

We look forward to catching up with our members!

November 11th is commemorated as Veterans Day, in honor of all those brave Americans who have served their country in war or peace.

Since the attacks of September 2001, the United States has been at war for more than 19 years. We now have the largest population of young veterans since the Vietnam War. Today, less than one percent of Americans choose to serve in the military, and 78 percent of those Soldiers come from families that have served.

I am proud to serve with the current generation of Soldiers and Civilians who have dedicated themselves to the securing our freedoms and strengthening our nation.

On behalf of SGM Freeman and myself, we thank our veterans and their families for their sacrifices!

Happy Birthday!

On this date, 26 September 1941, the Military Police Corps was founded. Our heritage can be traced to the foundation of the republic, and the Military Police Corps has supported our nation in every major conflict dating back to the Revolutionary War.

As we celebrate our birthday, please remember our deployed Military Police Soldiers and Civilians, and honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our Nation.

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.

He may be old, toothless, an elite napper, and harrier than most retirees, but he still deserves to receive veteran benefits much like his human counterparts. Eros, a German Shepherd, who retired recently after a 7-year career as an explosives-detection trained military working dog. He’s currently running for a K-9 Hero Award, which recognizes 7 of the nation’s top-performing police and military K-9 heroes during a televised ceremony in November in Washington. If Eros wins a K-9 Hero Award, he will receive health care benefits, including medications, for the rest of his life — his food and funeral expenses would also be covered.

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.
