Memories For This Unit

Best Moment
The 40th MP Co. was assigned a special detail to help the Air Force provide security for the landings of the Space Shuttles at Edwards Air Force Base.

I was selected along with a member of the Air Nat. Guard to carry the banner leading off the 1985 Hollywood Christmas Parade.
