LEONARD WOOD, Mo. (December 13, 2018) – We have another Hamptonian in Command. CPT De'Angelo Criss, Hampton University Class of 2014, took command of "C" Company 787 Military Police Battalion, at FT Leonard Wood, MO.
Charlie Company trains Soldiers for 19 weeks in Basic Combat Training and Advanced Individual Training. CPT Criss will be graduating his very first class of Military Police Soldiers on December 19th. During that graduation he will administer the Military Police Oath to 176 graduates.
As we all know, Command is a necessity if you expect to move up the Chain, and we are so pleased to see that our Hamptonians are getting that opportunity.
The responsibility is squarely on CPT Criss' shoulders. We should keep the Soldiers, Trainers, and him in prayer as he takes up the mantle of Leadership.
