Too many MPs abuse thier authority. They use absolutely no tact with people, because they feel they're untouchable. There was a groupe of guys in one of my units in Korea that had shirts made that had thier names and unit patch on it, along with the words "Your rank, my authority. Don't get it twisted." Then they went to the clubs with them on. Needless to say, they incurred a couple fights which were closely followed by Article 15's.

See you there, kingcb; I arrive for BCT on the same day.

I'll be easy to spot, I'll probably be the oldest recruit there.

Well I was an Infantryman in the Light Infantry and I don't think it would go over to well if you pulled up to the Infantry on your truck after they walked 27 miles through the mountains with 80 lbs on their backs after doing 5 to 11 days of missions and said you were the same thing except you had trucks. That is not to say that your job isn't an important one and I'm sure there are things that you have to deal with that suck also.

Unfortunately the vehicles can't go where infantry do on foot and it's hard to sneak behind enemy lines in a truck. Otherwise I'm sure infantry would take you up on that and say thanks. Wink

I have also heard that Leonard Wood isn't that bad anymore. How old are you? I was 28 when I joined. I just switched from the Reserves where I worked in supply to the National Guard where I'm reclassing to MP. I have been told I will not be doing my training at Leonard Wood. Instead, I will be training for 2 weeks at Camp Dawson, West Virginia. The rest will be OJT. I feel like I am getting ripped off. Is this even legal? Will I actually be awarded an MOSQ cert for this type of training? I asked if this was just something temp, I was told no, I will not see L Wood unless its for the 2 week AT.

You make some interesting points, Doshaza. I hear you on the K9 thing. That's the reason I hesitated to go to the school. But the mental stability could go all kinds of ways. It could apply to the entry team as well. It could apply to Infantry snipers. It could apply to anybody placed in a traumatic situation. And also, if you have an ASI, and perform that job at one duty station, it doesn't mean you'll perform it at every other assignment you get.

Take Drill Sergeant. Once you get off the trail and PCS, you won't be a DS at your next duty station. So why give them an ASI?

Great thread. I know I'm jumping into this kinda late, but just thought I'd share a few thoughts. Garrison MP units, they do still exist, mostly in the reserves and guard. I'm in one, so I'd know, lol. To anadivine, when I went to leonard wood in 03, days were long and fast. I would say that for myself, portions of ait were more mentally draining than those of basic. Lots and lots of forms. But that's what they make pure edge and form flow for. Gotta love those computer programs. And yeah, Law Dogs are pretty much hated, but what are we gonna do? Oh yeah, our jobs. That's what the Army pays us for. Assist Protect Defend!


SPC DeHaan to USMC Captain, after pulling him over.
MP: "Sir, do you know why I pulled you over?"
USMC: "Because I'm driving on an Army base?"
