As an MP in the Army National Guard, i take my job very seriously because on the field, my life is on the line every day and one mistake can kill me or another soldier. During training in Fort Leonard Wood, Mossuri, i endured a noticable change in the way i see things. It helped me to pay a lot more attention to detail and i became a lot more aware of my surroundings. attention to detail and your surroundings are two main keys in staying alive on the battle field. The main purpose of an MP is to keep order and maintaining peace in a given area. We often deal with detainees and support the infantry when needed. this MOS requires a security clearance, which i obtained upon graduation from Miltary Police AIT.
