Press Release 17-104 Poet shares story about SHARP with Military Police Soldiers

Walking into Company E, 701st Military Police Battalion, teal blue painted handprints adorn the company’s wall with signatures of Soldiers who have taken the pledge to stop sexual assault and harassment.

Before this new group of some 200 MP Soldiers signed the wall, they were given the option to stand, verbally take the pledge, sign the pledge on paper and listen to the story of a sexual assault victim firsthand.

Capt. Edward McHenry Jr., Co. E commander, reminded the Soldiers that they all had just completed an important milestone in their careers, transitioning from being civilians into Soldiers and the responsibilities that come with that.
