A Pictorial History

As of  November 10, 2013

 

Throughout the history of most units in the military, there have been individuals with artistic inclinations and talents and this was also true in the 545th MP Company.  This pictorial history of such art work is just the beginning of what the writer of this document hopes will eventually become once the unit veterans submit all that great art work they have been keeping for years.
