The 630th Military Police Company History And Memorial
The Republic of Vietnam
1965 - 1972
This document includes 630th Military History, Commander’s Notes and a List of Commanding Officers.
Much of the history on 630th Military Police Operations in South Vietnam was collected from “After Action Reports”,
“Incident Reports” and from original MP Company “Rosters”.
We are grateful to members and friends of the 630th Military Police Company, who donated their time and efforts researching history on our Unit. It took many long hours, sifting through hundreds of pages of archives to gather data. Unfortunately many pages were found illegible or were missing information. Although edited, none the less, there is a lot of history captured here.
