In 2022, the Army Heritage Center Foundation will continue its webinar program on two Wednesdays each month, avoiding the third Wednesday of each month so as not to compete with the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center's Perspectives in Military History lecture series.
As always, if you miss one of the webinars, you can find it on the Army Heritage Center Foundation (AHCFoundation) YouTube Channel, and if you signed up for the program and missed the webinar, you will receive a link to the webinar/lecture.
143rd in Iraq - Training the Iraqi Police in Spite of It All. with MSG (R) Marc Youngquist
MGG (R) Youngquist provides a firsthand account of a Connecticut National Guard Military Police Company's attempt to recruit, train and prepare an Iraqi Police Force in 2003-2004 and the many dangers they faced as a result. From training for desert conditions in the dead of winter without the appropriate gear to driving through the night trying to find Baghdad with pieces of a map puzzle and finally to entering war zones without an adequate supply of soldiers, weapons, or ammo, Youngquist shares how the 143rd Military Police Company did what they could, in spite of it all.
