MILITARY POLICE . 19-14-1 Command Sergeant Major John F. McNeirney W e are experiencing exciting times in the Military Police Corps Regiment. As the Army goes through many changes and adjustments, we are implementing a number of initiatives to support the Army. Here at the home of the Regiment and the U.S. Army Military Police School (USAMPS), we are working hard to support Soldiers and units around the world. This support takes a variety of forms. For example, we are continually updating functional courses and the courses presented to Soldiers at all levels, from initial entry to leader development. As we visit units around the world, we will continue to rely on our observations and your feedback to ensure that we are providing Soldiers with the best training possible to meet current and future challenges. Soldiers remain the lifeblood of the Regiment. In my travels, I often fnd that—despite the operational tempo—many Soldiers manage to fnd time to actively pursue professional development opportunities. Many are enrolled in the Army Correspondence Course Program or resident or online college courses. Some are seeking professional certifcation opportunities. In addition, military police continue to win NCO and Soldier competitions in nearly every category throughout the Army. Military police are at the pinnacle of the Army profession, serving as shining examples of what it means to follow the Warrior Ethos. Regardless of the unit, military police leaders and Soldiers are doing great things at every location. This exceptional performance has resulted in the great reputation of the Military Police Corps. And senior commanders from around the world continue to commend the military police Soldiers who provide them with support. I am often asked, "How do today's military police Soldiers measure up to those that came before them?" I proudly reply, without hesitation, that today's military police Soldiers are not only trained, equipped, and led as well as (or better than) those who served before, but that they are also just as courageous as their predecessors. The sacrifces, professionalism, and commitment of today's battle-tested military police Soldiers do not go unnoticed or unappreciated by the Regiment or the public. Team: I am proud of what you accomplish every day. And I thank you for all that you do to support the Regiment, the Army, and our Nation. Assist, Protect, Defend!
