Hi Marla. Glad you could join us. As far as starting a new thread, go to the forum you wish to post in and at the top right, you'll see a button that says Start a New Topic. Hit that, give a name to the new topic and type what you wish. The MP platoon of the 37th was part of the table of organization after 1944. Prior to that, the 37th Military Police Company was part of the Headquarters Company. For a look at the 37th, look here http://www.members.tripod.com/~Carter_Phillips/father3.html/ You can also look here http://www.military.com/HomePage/UnitPageHistory/1,13506,722518|793197,00.html This is the insignia of the 37th. You should introduce yourself here http://www.ww2f.com/forum/27-%E2%98%86%E2%98%86-new-recruits-%E2%98%86%E2%98%86/ There is so much more to say, but this should get you started.
