552nd Conducts Weapons Firing

Pictures shown below are of the Deuce conducting weapons training at their home base in Hawaii. Top picture shows them firing the MK19 40mm Grenade Machine Gun from M1151 HMMWV (High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle). Bottom picture shows them firing the M240B Machine Gun. It is obvious that today's MP's have far more firepower than those of us that served in Vietnam.

Doug Dragert
Our Friend and Comrade
Has PCS'ed to Heaven

Doug

On Thursday July 16th our friend Doug Dragert was killed in a vehicle accident. Doug was a true friend and patriot that will be sorely missed. Doug served in the Deuce from Fort Benning to Vietnam and a short time with the 300th Military Police Company. After his Vietnam service he served at Fort Leonard Wood. After his military service Doug served on the Overland Park Police Department from which he retired as a Lieutenant. He and his wife Maggie were enjoying retirement on the Lake of the Ozarks in Camdenton, Missouri. Doug and Maggie had just returned several days earlier from a trip to the historic town of Hermann, Missouri in celebration of Doug's 70th Birthday. May God bless his soul and give Maggie comfort in dealing with her loss.
