Phil,

I'm so sorry to hear of Pauline's passing. Though you and I had the opportunity to serve together at Yongsan and Fort Campbell Districts, I was fortunate enough to know Pauline for several years prior, as we were assigned to the same MP Company in Butzbach, GE. As you said, Pauline was a ground breaker as a female MP and always a good friend. My condolences.

Mike Keller

Phil,
We met and worked on a case (theft at the museum) when I came out to Ft Lewis performing reserve duty, in the late 70s.
I am sorry for your loss - my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Phil, It seems like two lifetimes ago that we were "wobbly ones" at Fort Dix District when it was still a rockin post complete with a brand new, then state of the art, military stockade, plus a company size personnel control facility.
I'm so sorry for your loss, but know you must be comforted by the memories of many great years together, and the hope that your spirits may join again in the hereafter of heaven. God bless you old friend.

Phil,
I'm not sure if I met Pauline when I was at Ft Hood, but I know she must have been a lovely lady. My prayers go out to you and other members of the family.

Pauline passed after a 16 month ordeal with cancer. To our friends I apologize for not making you aware; but, if you knew Pauline you also know that she was a very private person. I did my best to honor her desire for that privacy. Long story short is that in Aug of 2014 she was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. It had spread throughout her body, she was given a few months to live, and went to home hospice in Sep 2014. Thanks to her strength and palliative chemo treatments at Walter Reed we had another year together until Nov this year. After a couple of falls at home she was readmitted to Walter Reed on Nov 16 and placed in comfort care. Walter Reed did a great job and with the correct meds relieved the pain and made her as comfortable as possible. I was even staying in her room with her. On Dec 10th, at midnight she passed as I was holding her.

For you that did not know, Pauline was also an agent. She was among that first group of women to join the Military Police Corps (1974) and later one of the early female agents (1977).

I love you baby.
