A training film in the United States details the role of Combat MP (Military Police) of the United States Army in supporting river crossing during war. Use of holding area which is located between the staging area of equipment and the ERP (Engineer Regulating Point) shows advance of equipment from midway to bridge aided by holding areas controlled by MPs. An MP directs lesser priority traffic to the holding area to let the higher priority traffic go first. Trucks and jeeps advance along a road. Evacuation of prisoners shows prisoners being loaded into a truck under an MP guard. Engineers work on damaged crossing equipment. MPs direct the traffic to a dispersal area while waiting to proceed. Equipment moves across the river on an MAB (Mobile Assault Bridge) and traffic is directed by MPs on the other side of river.
