About the MPRA
Through various programs and events, the MPRA is able to provide opportunities for their members and communities. From helping Soldiers and their families in need to providing scholarships, there’s something for everyone to participate in. Donations for the various programs are greatly appreciated.
BENEVOLENT FUND PROGRAM
The MPRA Benevolent Fund is dedicated to provide financial relief to members and retirees of the Military Police Corps Regiment and Soldiers or civilians working in support of the Military Police Corps Regiment in times of need. Established in 2007, the MPRA is proud of the fact that over $150,000 has been distributed to date. Membership is not a requirement to benefit from this program but it is strongly encouraged. Leaders at all levels are encouraged to take advantage of the fund whenever they have exhausted all means to financially support Soldiers and family members in times of need. The Benevolent Fund is one of the many ways that the MPRA supports Soldiers around the world every day.
MILITARY POLICE MEMORIAL GROVE and REGIMENTAL WALKWAY
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.
The Scholarship Program awards scholarships annually to children and spouses of standard MPRA members. Students may be enrolled, or planning to enroll, in an accredited college or university in a program of undergraduate and graduate studies. The program was established in 2006 with the purpose of providing educational tools to the family members of the Military Police Corps Regiment. We have awarded $238,300 to 263 family members to continue their educational goals to date. The MPRA Scholarship Program is made possible through generous contributions from friends of the MPRA and from proceeds from a variety of fundraising efforts.
