Army Patrols Columbus Georgia

Nah, it’s not the imposition of martial law… it’s something else?

Military patrols start Friday night in downtown Columbus

Starting at 10 o’clock Friday, two senior non-commissioned officers from Fort Benning will be on courtesy patrol.  The soldiers will be wearing arm bands that read, “Courtesy Patrol.”

Okay whatever happened to the MPs? Or in my case the Shore Patrol?

Does Fort Benning not have an MP contingent working with local law enforcement?

I’m sorry, the concept of a Courtesy Patrol seems strange to me. Or maybe silly? Doesn’t it evoke odd images for anyone else? If I saw the Shore Patrol striding purposefully in my direction I’d be concerned… The Courtesy Patrol, not so much.
