As of October 27, 2015
We have added here a section for our Non Combat Related Deaths and this includes but is not limited to prior service and retired veterans of the 545th MP Company who have served from the inception of the Cavalry MPs and the old MP Platoon down through the 545th MP Company, 1st Cavalry Division and later on the 545th MP Company, Arctic MP Battalion. These deaths may be caused by old age or while on active duty in a training accident and of course death caused by health issues. So that all of our brethren may be remembered we humbly submit this list of known deaths of our brother and sister 545th MPs. May God watch over their souls and may they be remembered always.
