WWII Military Police in Europe
Keep traffic moving safely, echoed MPs in basic training. Give this duty top attention, for tactical success often hinges on this factor. And MPs gave it all they had...
Combat teams looked on armored MPs as friends, willing to lend a hand when the going was hot. Sometimes, MPs rode the backs of tanks with a task force.
Once posted, the traffic MP accepts a tremendous responsibility. Proper movement of traffic demands that he never once neglect his duty. Rain, snow, mud, enemy patrol, tank fire, strafing, artillery bursts, mortar-nothing must budge him. His post is sacred ground which he must preserve, even if he must give his life.
