"Mountain Marshalls"

In October 2005, as part of a reorganization of military police units within XVIII Corps (Airborne), the 10th Military Police Battalion (Provisional) was inactivated. The 10th Military Police Company was also inactivated.

The 10th Military Police Company was ready for Worldwide Deployment within 96 hours of notificaiton, to conduct General Support Missions in support of the 10th Mountain Division. The 10th Military Police Company consisted of 3 platoons of 7 teams and one headquarters element.

The 10th Military Police Company conducted unit and battalion operations, area security, MMSO, I&R, PM cell operations, law enforcement operations and civil disturbance operations. The 1st Platoon, 10th Military Police Company conducts area security, MMSO, and I&R in support of 1st Brigade, 10th Mountain Division. The 2nd Platoon, 10th Military Police Company conducts area security, MMSO, personal security detail, law enforcement operations and general support to the Division.

The 10th Military Police Company could trace its connection with the 10th Mountain Division to 27 August 1942, when it was constituted in the Army of the United States as Military Police Platoon, Mountain Training Center. It was activated on 14 September 1942 at Camp Carson, Colorado. The unit was redesignated on 18 June 1948 as the 10th Military Police Company and assigned to the 10th Infantry Division. It was allotted on 25 June 1948 to the Regular Army and activated on 1 July 1948 at Fort Riley, Kansas.

It was inactivated on 1 July 1957 in Germany and relieved from assignment to the 10th Infantry Division (later designated as the 10th Mountain Division). On 1 February 1985 the unit was assigned to the 10th Mountain Division and activated at Fort Drum, New York.

In May 1990, the 10th Military Police Battalion (Provisional) was activated to serve as the law enforcement command for Fort Drum, New York. It took over the administrative control of the 10th Military Police Company, as well as the 511th Military Police Company, and the 177th Military Police Detachment.

A part of the US Army's modular force structure transformation included the creation of Brigade Special Troops Battalions. These units were designed to provide organic signals, engineering, military intelligence, military police, and other support which had historically been achieved by the habitual attachment of companies and platoons from units assigned to parent divisions.A platoon of Military Police was formally integrated into the Headquarters and Headquarters Companies of the Brigade Special Troops Battalions. Military Police units within XVIII Corps were subsequently reorganized, and the 10th Military Police Battalion (Provisional) was inactivated, along with the 10th Military Police Company.
