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.

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.

The 44th RMPOA Reunion kicked off with the attendees arriving on Wednesday, 18 September. The Hotel Finial has provided a wonderful venue for the members; great rooms, comfortable settings throughout the main building and a cozy Spencer's Bar as the hospitality room. 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.

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.
