The status and missions of the MPs changed in Vietnam. In the initial attack on the U.S. Embassy during the Tet Offensive of 1968
the first two casualties were MPs killed defending the embassy. Two more MPs were killed when responding to the fire fight taking
place there. 27 MPs lost their lives and 45 were wounded fighting in and around Saigon during the battle that raged for control of
the city. The traditional duties of town patrol, base security, POW security had been augmented with armed river patrols, convoy
escorts, etc. Many MPs names appear on The Wall in Washington, D.C.
