This is a wooden baton marked US on the end.  No other markings.  Wondering when this would have been used, presumably by MPs?

Yes, MP and Riot Control, for non-lethal “encouragement”. With it being painted black, I would say mid ‘50’s and later. I would also say Army Issue; I’m not sure how Navy marked their batons. It would have a leather thong.
