Bamberg. The very last unit stationed at US Army Garrison Bamberg, the 630th MP Company, officially inactivated during a short ceremony at Bamberg's Freedom Fitness Facility on Friday, 18 July 2014. Company commander Capt. Dane M. Hiltner and 1st Sgt. Jeffrey R. Friebe cased the unit's colors while approximately 60 guests and members of the garrison's command group where in attendance.

The "Mavericks" look back to a distinguished history of over 70 years. In 2011 the unit redeployed from its last deployment to Iraq where it supported Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2004, 2006 and 2010. Before, the 630th MP company supported operations in former Yugoslavia, Kosovo, Vietnam and during World War II. Battalion commander Lt. Col. Matthew R. Gragg, 18th Military Police Brigade, received the company's guidon from the company's commander, Capt. Dane. M. Hiltner.

After the unit's inactivation, MPs from the 709th MP Battalion have been detailed to provide security until the garrison officially closes in September.
