Military Police officer. And yes, his last name really is Provost.

We had a Policeman out of our local precinct house several years back who's last name was Outlaw, his name would crop up in arrests in our local newspaper's NYPD blotter for the said week as the arresting officer, PO Outlaw :lol:

At least his first name isn't Major, then he'd be Lieutenant Major Provost :D

Here's one with his badges, sometime in the 1930s, a Reservist of the 310th Infantry, 78th Division from New Jersey. He's Captain Thomas B. Protzman MC, and I assume either the regimental surgeon or one of the battalion''s of the regiment's surgeon. Protzman was called to active duty in 1940 and would be by late 1942 a Lieutenant Colonel and given command of the United States Army Hospital Ship Acadia (Wasn't aware the Army ran Hospital Ships, knew they ran Minesweepers and Transport Ships but not Hosptal ones) .

There were approx 24 Army hospital ships during WW2, ferrying wounded troops to CONUS. The Navy had 3 (?) which they used as floating hospitals.

Here's a 1920s photo of him, with his Expert badge with one of the BARS, Walker received the Medal of Honor Posthumously.

 

Here's a great site on him.
