(Neb)-Transition To MP Unit Nearly Complete For 1057th  Listen

By: John Axtell Posted at: 03/06/2017 09:52 AM
CHADRON -  The Nebraska Army National Guard's 1057th Military Police Company drew about 70 people to an open house at the Armory in Chadron on Sunday to showcase its conversion from a transportation company as part of a Nebraska and national reorganization of the guard.

       Unit commander Captain Charles McGreer says he was pleased by the turnout for the open house and thinks the number would have been much higher except for the fact Chadron State College began spring break on Friday.

     The Nebraska National Guard reorganization that includes the change for the 1057th was announced in November 2015 and began about a year ago. Captain McGreer says his unit essentially made the switch last summer, although it's not official until September.

     McGreer says part of what still needs to be complete is training all the members of the unit for their new job requirements, which are much different that most people think of when they hear the term military police.

Captain McGreer says the conversion from transportation to military police has gone smoothly for the same reason the 1057th was so successful as a transportation company - the outstanding men and women of the unit, especially its veteran non-commissioned officers.

The 1057th has detachments in Scottsbluff, Sidney, and McCook.
