511th Military Police Company beret! Need help!


Recommended Posts

Hello! Recently I started to research a history of 511th MP Comp. When not deployed, 511th MP Company is attached to 91st Military Police Battalion, 16th Military Police Brigade at Fort Drum. When deployed it was attached to 10th Mountain Division.


And here appears one question that makes my mind explode! Was it authorized for 511th MP Comp (and 91st MP Bn) to wear maroon beret, since 16th MP Bde had Airborne status from 1982 to 2008 (Brigade's patch used to have an airborne tab). I saw photos of soldiers from other Airborne Battallions from 16th Bde in maroon berets (e.g. 503rd MP Bn) but never saw any photos of soldiers from 511th Comp. in maroons. Only in black ones (since 2008 at least).


Any thoughts? How it came to be that unit that has AIB status, patch with tab but not marron berets?


Thanx in advance!
