mike church

i was in stockade at ft.lenordwood mo. my name is mike church if anyone else was in stockade e mail me at


I was stationed in Fort Campbell, Kentucky with 6th MP Company at the time we were being trained by the 553rd MP company there because the 101st MP'S had been sent to Vietnam. I had come home on leave and was returning to the base, but was unable to get into the base from Memphis because that was the time that Martin Luther kKing had been assasinated there. When I got finally into the base the next day. The place looked like a war zone. The blacks on base had rioted and tried to turn the place upside down, luckily the 553rd and 6th MPS were able to control the place.


I think the date is incorrect of the riots at fort campbell. I believe it was earlifer then the date indicates.
