Mail Bag

Having received this in the mail over the Holidays, we wanted to share as this Commander is Leo C. Helmer's oldest grandson. (See pic at bottom of page.) This excerpt is from the Titan Times a very well done news vehicle sent by PDF to family and friends of the 512th Military Police Company Rear Detachment. The 512th Military Police Company was re-activated on 16 October 2008 at Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri as a Combat Support FORSCOM MP Company. Upon activation the Company received orders to deploy in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in the Spring of 2010. Throughout 2009 the company became trained and ready for the up-coming mission. In February 2010 the company deployed to Iraq. The company is currently serving in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom 10, and will be one of the first units to support Operation New Dawn.

Commander’s Corner

By Cpt. Timothy J. Heisler

As Christmas 2010 comes and goes, we are more than ever ready to return home. It has been a very long year for both Soldier and Family alike. As we know and hear on a daily basis you are all proud of our service to our Country, but what you may not know is how much your support to us while we are away really means. It was wonderful during the Holiday season to see many gifts, packages and letters being delivered to the Company. Each one of them we know was sent with love. Just know that all of us here are more than grateful for the sacrifices you have to make on a daily basis as our friends and family.

The next big step for us is locking in the date of when we will be with you all again. As soon as it is locked in we will be getting that information to you and our Soldiers so it can be passed to everyone who wishes to welcome the Mighty Titans home. I pray that the coming New Year brings joy and happiness to each and every one of you and your families. It is times like these that we truly under-stand the meaning of:
Absence makes the heart grow fonder.‖ See you soon.
–Titan 6
