WHAT'S NEW

June 19, 2001:

Sneak Preview begins,  website established and former members are asked to review and make comments/corrections about captions for photos they provided etc.

July 4, 2001

Sneak Preview ends.  Added the following:

Documents Page (with associated pages), Bien Hoa Page in the Photo section provided by Garth Adcock, one photo to the Vung Tau #1 page from Mike Flanigan, Whats New Page which is a chronology of site changes, two names on the Fallen Troopers page, names to Guard mount Page and a Discussion Page.

Revised the following:

History Page, received more information on the parent 73rd MP Co. of WWII.   Basically learned that the Company was also assigned to the 7th Army while in France.  Modified the animated Brassard on the Entry page and added the 7th Army patch to the History Page.  Also corrected some photo captions for syntax, and accuracy.

A special thanks to Tom Watson of the  "The Archive, Roster, and Biography Project - 720th MP Battalion - Vietnam Era" who provided the News Articles.  Tom can be reached at the following E-mail addresws:  MP720Project@wctel.net .

Added to Document Page, Jun 1970 95th MP Bn history article.  Added Daniel R. Duarte to Guard Mount page.

Discussion Page deleted.  The Discussion Page was deleted after no postings were made for a period of eight weeks (discussion server policy).  Since no one really used the Discussion Page I decided to remove it from the website.

Feb 2002

Added an article about Vung Tau detachments "on the spot correction" of an errant water buffalo.  The Guard Mount page is now up to 18 former members, including two from the Korean War.  We still have room for more photos that former members may want to post on the site.

Added another photo page,  Can Tho page 3, with photos provided by Butch Barto during the 1967 and 1968 period.

Added another photo page, Qui Nhon, a Final Deployment page (July 72 to Mar 73) and amended the History page with historical data from the 1972 yearbook.  All of which by the information provided by Neal Gosman.  Thanks Neal.  We are now up to 24 former members on the Guard Mount page.

Added a photo from David Cole on Vung Tau 4 photo page.  Added a example of the current company coin provided by the current CO of the Company.  Also had a request to add a name to the Guard Mount page from a post war member of the 560th.  I decided that I can not restrict the Guard Mount page to just war veterans so have add a Post War section to the Guard Mount page.
