Looking for men who served with the unit during it's stationing at
Pusan.

I served in the 512th M.P. Co., Pusan until there was a reduction in
forces. This was due to being assigned to 7th Port Command C, because
most of my M.P. time was spent as an investigator and NCOIC of US Army
customs, Pusan and Ulsan. They needed more MP's for guard duty, the 7th
Port had unlimited space for personnel.

Comments: Served as a guard at Fort Huachuca Post Stockade run by the 512th M.P. Company from July 1969 to Feb. 1971. Looking for any photos from that time of the old Company grounds, Stockade, or Ft. Huachuca area. The base was STRATCOM at the time and had a HUGE stone STRATCOM patch on the mountain side above the Fort. Any photo copies or historical info on the 512th would be great. Thanks.

Comments: I am currently the 1SG of the 512th MP Co reactivated in Oct 2008 at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. I may be of assistance with the Lineage and Honors for the 512th MP Co. I can explain the unit's awards and what combat campaigns the 512th participated in. Unfortunately, I cannot help with specific names as I do not have any rosters from before 2008.

I would like to add that the 512th Military Police Company has been carrying on the tradition of excellence set by our predecessors since February 2010 in Iraq.

Comments: I have been in this unit over a year and we can not find any history of this unit other than the Supply records. To my knowledge and research this unit was established in 2000, but was known as 512th MP Company. If you can provide me the history of this unit and when 512th MP Company was deactivated and when 18th MP Detachment was activated?

Comments: Please help. My daddy, William Thomas (Bill) Prestidge was an MP in the Korean War. I have pictures of him in uniform with the MP on his arm. In my grandmothers Bible is the following:
Purson, Korea
512th M.P. APO 59
c/o P.M. San Francisco, Ca
8074th ASU Trans Truck Bd
296th Trans Truck Bd
Does any of this make sense to anyone??? Does anyone know my dad? I'm sorry I don't have more information. He died in 1989.
Any help you can give would be so very much appreciated.
Thank you in advance
