FORT LEAVENWORTH, Kan. (AP) -- A Fort Riley military police company has been honored by the Army's Corrections Command for its service in operating the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks.
The Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 40th Military Police Battalion of the 15th Military Police Brigade, was presented Tuesday with the Brig. Gen. Thomas F. Barr Award. The unit competed against 13 other military police companies in the Army, including those stationed in Germany and South Korea.
The award covers accomplishments by the unit from October 2011 through this September, the federal fiscal year. During that time the unit returned from a deployment to Iraq and returned to its duties supporting the operation of the disciplinary barracks, the military's only maximum security prison.
The unit is led by 1st Lt. Michael Imdieke and 1st Sgt. Britt Cogan.
