The Lighter Side
Of MP Duty
This Index Last Updated ~  22 February 2016
 

Fellow Veteran's.... In this section we want to present the "Lighter Side" of MP duty with the Battalion.  MPs are renowned for their outrageous pranks and sense of humor.  Do you remember a humorous or embarrassing incident that occurred to you or someone else during your tour with the Battalion ?

     Do you have any personally authored cartoons, or some that were authored by one of your buddies ?   How about a story of a good practical joke?

     Please take a few moments to pass them along for everyone to enjoy.  Use the Email Link provided above to contact the History Project Manager for any questions, assistance or details. Your contributions of information are always welcomed here.
