Military Police play a vital role in protecting our troops both at home and overseas. This highly skilled job prepares Soldiers for exciting careers both in and out of the Army.
When we're at home, we fight crime. Overseas, we fight the bad guys. We bring law to the lawless all over the world.
As an MP you can come in 18 years old and uh you get to learn how to be a police officer. That's something that you can't do in the civilian world until you're 21 years old. As an 18-year-old kid, you're given a lot of responsibility.
You basically have a dual job: you go from working the road in law and order to the combat side. We work on bases all around the world. We're also in the combat zones.
When we're on our beats we work with the locals. We're out there with them, we get to know them, we build a trust. And they bring tips to us and we save lives with some of those tips.
We've seen a lot of unusual people coming up and down from the mountains up there.
Can you show me where.
We're here to help people every day and our motto is assist, protect and defend. We can do anything that the Army needs as far as pulling security on a route; we can train local police; we can help raids; you name it and we can do it. We got the call, let's go, let's go. When the Army needs help, they call on us.
