There as a MP November 1969 thru June 1971. Started out in A Company 518th MP Battalion, then A Company was designated as the 401st MP Company. Worked a lot of shifts; Gate Guard, Stockade Duty, Traffic Control, Bus Driver, Radio Operator(entered log on manual typewriter), AWOL Apprehension at Dallas Love Field, Patrol Supervisor. Lived in wooden barracks immediately across the street from III Corps Headquarters. PMO was acroos the street from Post Headquarters. MP’s put up and took down the post flag each day. Two patrol cars on Post, car 4 north end and main gate, car 7 south end and commissary area. Car 100 Range road to North Ft. Hood, car 101 West Fort Hood. Patrol Supervisor was car 10. First and Second Armored Division had their own MP patrols the overlapped car 4 and 7.
Been there as an MP. The place was OK but wouldn’t want to live there forever. Maybe visit again, but not for long. Love the area around Fort Hood but the post is to large.
I was stationed here from 89-94. 401st MP Company. Good assignment for MP duty. The MP station (Roth Hall) is named after my platoon mate Pfc Scott Roth who was KIA in Panama during Operation Just Cause.
I WAS STATIONED HERE IN 1972 ABD 1973 IN 2/67 ARMOR AND THEN I WORKED IN S-3 AT 2ND BRIGADE.
