MPRA Gives Back
The Military Police Regimental Walkway and Memorial Grove has come a long way over the years. You can visit the Grove just about any time of the day and you will see people of all ages paying homage to our Regiment’s heroes as well as all MP’s past, present and future. The Memorial Grove contains 3 statues that are significant to the Regiment. The first is a bronze crossed pistol archway that has become known as the “Gateway to the Regiment.” The second is a 10-foot high bronze replica of the World War II era MP Soldier who is directing traffic on the battlefield in the “Of the Troops and For the Troops” art piece. The third is the Marechaussee on Horseback overlooking Memorial Grove. Two additional walls for the units to dedicate plaques and a bridge over a historical marker leads to the completed foundation for the walkway. Lights were installed throughout the Grove which now allows for visits after dark. Dedicated granite benches and trees display the names of Soldiers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and MP Units around the world. Thousands of bricks line the walkway that honor individual Soldiers as well as units. The Regimental Walkway is truly an amazing and awe inspiring place to visit.
