Whenever Ordinance Disposal or Aviation is required, the Military Police Corps utilizes the separate Army branches of Ordinance and Aviation respectively (“What’s it like to be an Army MP” 1). Army Military Police Officers derive their authority directly from the federal government rather than from a civilian local municipality.
Career Reflection Paper The career path in which I have chosen to follow is United States Army Soldier. However, as I have inched closer to reaching my 20-year mark in the Army and prepare for retirement, I have chosen to complete my collegiate studies, so that upon my Army retirement, I can pursue a career as a Human Resources Management Officer. Being a Soldier, has allowed me to not only learn about my own abilities as a leader and hone those skills, but also, I have learned to follow others in pursuit of accomplishing a common goal (a mission). These abilities are going to be extremely helpful in my post Army career in some type of corporation. I have the privilege of being the grandson of two Korean War veterans who both served honorably with the all Puerto Rican, 65th Infantry Regiment.
