    Military Police Training?

    They're pansies compared to the early 70's. They can't even kick you anymore. There will be as many women in the class as men, and if a guy can't handle it, he shouldn't be there!

    I heard that from several different people.My future son in law is a career Air Force guy.He said the military is much more sophisticated than 40 years ago,and things are very different.I told my wife,if for some reason he did not make it in this,I am sure they have some other job.He may like it,he is the quiet type, rarely gets upset or emotional.That may work to his advantage.

    Military police training in any branch of the service can not hurt you. I started out as an AP in the Air Force, later they switched it to SP. That was the only reason I made in onto the Delaware State Police, in spite of my size. I was the smallest Trooper in Delaware for about 4 years. It was my military police training and service that got me that job!

    Yes the basic is more "intense" than say going to Ft. Jackson (Relaxing in Jackson) or Ft. Sil (All MP training is held at Ft. Leonerdwood, MO), but if he's use to doing outdoor things, likes exercising, etc he'll do just fine.

    Tell him thank you for choosing to serve, and in the MP field! If he gets in a good unit, he'll really enjoy it. :)
