The MPRA is proud to congratulate the 2018 United States Army Military Police Corps Regiment’s Hall of Fame inductees. Please see the message below that was provided from USAMPS:
On behalf of the Commandant of the United States Army Military Police School and Chief of the Military Police Corps Regiment, it is with great pride that the United States Army Military Police Corps Regiment announce its 2018 inductees:
Colonel (R) William L. Hart
Colonel (R) John F. Garrity
Chief Warrant Officer Four (R) David J. Zeliff
Command Sergeant Major (R) Dorsey L. Newcomb
Colonel (R) William L. Hart’s service spanned over thirty-four years and includes combat service from Vietnam through Afghanistan. COL(R) Hart was dedicated to the growth, development, and welfare of the Military Police Corps. Serving in key policy and operational personnel positions, he developed systems used by all services for congressionally mandated joint service in Confinement Operations. His competence in the construction of compliant confinement facilities resulted in his recall to active duty in a role essential to the establishment of the Rule of Law in the Global War on Terror. His multiple contributions to the Military Police Corps will impact generations to come.
Colonel (R) John F. Garrity’s distinguished career began as a Platoon Leader in 1987 and culminated as the Commander of the Army’s only Airborne Military Police Brigade in 2008. Colonel Garrity developed innovative solutions to complex problems, helped subordinates mature as leaders, and brought his passion for soldering to all he encountered. He lived by a simple credo: “Be a Professional” and charged his subordinates to embrace this motto and command philosophy. He imbued the warrior spirit in all those he led while at the same time caring for those under his charge. Colonel Garrity deployed units into combat as a Company, Battalion, and Brigade Commander.
Chief Warrant Officer Four (R) David J. Zeliff’s distinguished Army career spanned more than thirty-eight years and he has represented our Regiment at the Department of Justice, Department of Defense and numerous civilian law enforcement and academic organizations. A consummate professional, he is widely recognized as one of the very best criminal investigators in the U.S. Army. Mr. Zeliff has been, and continues to be, a distinguished senior leader and his contributions will have an enduring impact on our Regiment.
Command Sergeant Major (R) Dorsey Newcomb’s twenty-five year career was exemplified by the excellence of his Soldiers’ accomplishments and the Military Police units in which he served. He distinguished himself as a leader of the highest caliber throughout his career in every leadership position from Squad Leader to Command Sergeant Major. He continued to serve the Military Police Corps Regiment after his retirement in 2008 as a member and President of the National Board of Directors for the Military Police Regimental Association. He is recognized as one of our most influential retired senior leaders that continues to favorably impact our Regiment.
COL (R) Hart, COL (R) Garrity, CW4 (R) Zeliff, and CSM (R) Newcomb will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on 27 September 2018 from 1100 – 1300 at the Maneuver Support Center of Excellence, Lincoln Hall Auditorium, followed by a photo unveiling in the Military Police Corps Regimental Museum. The Military Police Corps Regiment congratulates the inductees and their Family members on their induction into our prestigious Hall of Fame.
