Family members contend for Order of the Crossed Pistols
1

Family members of soldiers assigned to 503rd Military Police Battalion, 16th MP Brigade, stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C., experience a day of airborne military police activities in an Order of the Airborne Crossed Pistols Sept. 24,. The Order of the Airborne Crossed Pistols is a military police tradition that dates back to 1923. It is similar to the cavalry's spur ride tradition. Family members gain a better understanding of what their soldier experiences in daily training and duty performance. Pfc. Ryan Meade 118th MP Company is a "padded" assailant for the event.
