In Memory of
Harry Wade
WWII Member of the 552nd Military Police Escort Guard Company

Harry Wade a member of the 552nd during World WarHrryWade II passed away this past week. Harry authored a book entitled "My Private Military Odyssey" which detailed the unit's events during their World War II experiences. I had the opportunity to meet with Harry during their unit reunion in 2010 at Bird-in-the-Hand.,Pennsylvania.Harry organized their reunions and published a newsletter for many years. I enjoyed my time with Harry and realized he was a special person that will be missed by his family and surviving comrades.

Those that served in the Deuce during WWII is fast becoming a small group. We thank them for their service. May Harry rest in eternal peace knowing that he served his country with honor and distinction and was a true friend to those that knew him.

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


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.
