Iron Thunder 4-27 FA

Iron Thunder 4-27 FA Thank you for visiting the 4-27 FA page. We do our best to keep our families and fellow soldiers updated. If you are a new soldier, please report to BN S1.

As part of the reorganization of the 1st Armored Division to the US Army's new modular force structure, various units previously held at the division level were made organic to the brigades they habitually supported. 4th Battalion, 27th Field Artillery Regiment was subsequently reassigned to the 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division from the Division Artillry (DIVARTY). The DIVARTY was subsequently inactivated. The 4th Battalion, 27th Field Artillery Regiment remained a 155mm self-propelled artillery battalion as it had been before the modular reorganization. Prior to the reorganization, 4-27th Field Artillery had habitually supported the 2nd Brigade, 1st Armored Division. Prior to the relocation of the 1st Armored Division to Fort Bliss, Texas, the Battalion had been located with forward elements of the 2nd Brigade, 1st Armored Division at Baumholder, Germany. The 4th Battalion, 27th Field Artillery was first constituted on 5 July 1918 in the National Army as Battery D, 27th Field Artillery, an element of the 9th Division. It was organized on 2 August 1918 at Camp McClellan, Alabama and subsequently demobilized on 8 February 1919 at Camp McClellan, Alabama. The unit was reconstituted on 24 March 1923 in the Regular Army as Battery D, 27th Field Artillery, an element of the 9th Division. The 27th Field Artillery as a whole was relieved on 1 October 1933 from assignment to the 9th Division. The unit was redesignated on 15 July 1940 as Battery D, 27th Field Artillery Battalion, and activated at Fort Knox, Kentucky, as an element of the 1st Armored Division. The unit was absorbed on 15 December 1941 by Battery A, 27th Field Artillery Battalion. Battery A, 27th Field Artillery Battalion, was redesignated on 1 January 1942 as Battery A, 27th Armored Field Artillery Battalion. As part of Battery A, 27th Armored Field Artillery, the unit's personnel served through seven campaigns in World War II. These were Algeria-French Morocco (as part of the initial invasion), Tunisia, Naples-Foggia, Anzio, Rome-Arno, North Apennines, and Po Valley. After the Second World War, Battery A, 27th Armored Field Artillery was converted and redesignated on 1 May 1946 as Troop A, 27th Constabulary Squadron, and relieved from assignment to the 1st Armored Division. It was inactivated on 20 December 1948 in Germany and converted and redesignated as Battery A, 27th Armored Field Artillery Battalion, an element of the 1st Armored Division. War in Korea precipitated the need once again for Armored Divisions in the Active Force Structure and on 7 March 1951, the 27th Armored Field Artillery Battalion was activated at Fort Hood, Texas as part of the newly reactivated 1st Armored Division. Battery A, 27th Armored Field Artillery Battalion, still containing the lineage and honors of D Battery, 27th Field Artillery Battalion, was activated on the same day. The 27th Armored Field Artillery Battalion subsequently moved to Fort Polk, Louisiana. Former Battery D, 27th Field Artillery Battalion, was formally reconstituted on 15 February 1957 in the Regular Army and redesignated as Headquarters and Headquarters Battery, 4th Battalion, 27th Artillery. It was redesignated on 19 March 1959 as Headquarters and Headquarters Battery, 4th Howitzer Battalion, 27th Artillery. At this point it was concurrently withdrawn from the Regular Army, allotted to the Army Reserve, and assigned to the 83rd Infantry Division with its organic elements concurrently constituted. It was not until 20 March 1959 that the 4th Battalion, 27th Field Artillery was formally activated, with Headquarters at Chillicothe, Ohio. There it was inactivated on 15 April 1963 and relieved from assignment to the 83rd Infantry Division. While inactivate, the unit was redesignated on 1 September 1971 as the 4th Howitzer Battalion, 27th Field Artillery. On 16 June 1985 the unit was redesignated as the 4th Battalion, 27th Field Artillery, concurrently withdrawn from the Army Reserve, allotted to the Regular Army, and activated in Germany. A non-divisional artillery battalion assigned to VII Corps, the unit was equipped with the M270 Multiple Launch Rocket Ststem and based in Wertheim, Germany. The Battalion spent the next 5 years as a reinforcing unit to the 1st Armored Division with many gunnery rotations to the Grafenwoehr Training Area. On 2 August 1990, the Army of Iraq invaded Kuwait. This invasion set in motion the largest deployment of US Forces since World War II and the 4th Battalion, 27th Field Artillery was an active participant. On 4 November 1990, the 4th Battalion, 27th Field Artillery was alerted for service in the Persian Gulf War, deploying between late December 1990 and early January 1991 as an element of the 75th Field Artillery Brigade, VII Corps Artillery. The relationships that the Battalion had established with the 1st Armored Division served it well in the Gulf and the 4th Battalion, 27th Field Artillery was assigned the mission of reinforcing to the 1st Armored Division Artillery. Equipped with 27 M270 MLRS vehicles, the 4th Battalion, 27th Field Artillery provided awesome fire power in support of the 1st Armored Division. On 20 February 1991, the 4th Battalion, 27th Field Artillery and Battery A, 94th Field Artillery, both equipped with the MLRS, moved east from FAA Garcia to a position near the Kuwait-Iraq-Saudi Arabia tri-border area. On 21 February 1991, the Battalion joined with elements of the 1st Cavalry Division Artillery to attack known and suspected enemy locations in Iraq at noon and 1500 hours. During the missions the 4th Battalion, 27th Field Artillery fired 312 rockets on the first mission and 276 rockets on the second mission prepping the battlefield for ground offensive operations, which began on 24 February 1991. For its service in the Persian Gulf War, the 4th Battalion, 27th Field Artillery was awarded the Meritorious Unit Commendation and 3 Campaign Participation Streamers. Following action in the Persian Gulf War, the 4th Battalion, 27th Field Artillery returned to Germany with assignment to the 41st Field Artillery Brigade. The battalion was subsequently redeployed to Fort Sill, Oklahoma and inactivated on 15 January 1996. On 16 February 1997, the 4th Battalion, 27th Field Artillery was reactivated at Baumholder, Germany, equipped with the M109A6 Paladin 155mm Self-Propelled Howitzer, and assigned to the 1st Armored Division. There the Battalion participated in many national missions and major training exercises. In 1997, the Battalion provided fire support personnel to the NORDPOL Brigade in Bosnia. Battery A, augmented by slice elements from Headquarters and Headquarters Battery, and Service Battery saw action with Task Force Hawk during Operation Noble Anvil in Albania and Kosovo. Additionally, the Battalion conducted realistic training during Exercise Rolling Steel 98 and 99, Exercise Rolling Thunder 99, Grafenwoehr Gunnery, supported to the 1st Armored Division and V Corps during Warfighters, and provided direct support field artillery fires and coordination for the 2nd Brigade, 1st Armored Division at the Combat Maneuver Training Center. C Battery, 4-27th Field Artillery also had the honor of being the Salute Battery for the 1st Armored Division between May 1999 to July 2000. The most important and greatest duty in this capacity was to help commemorate the 55th Anniversary of the D-Day landings. During 3 days in June 1999 C Battery performed retreat ceremonies, salutes, and placed over 18,000 flags on the graves of US Service Members who gave their all during the invasion. On 1 October 2005, the unit was redesignated as the 4th Battalion, 27th Field Artillery Regiment

Mission: It is our goal to provide the public with information and news about Iron Thunder, 1st AD, Fort Bliss, and the U.S. Army and to allow for an open forum of discussion about 4th Battalion 27th Field Artillery, Fort Bliss, and U.S. Army topics.

Strike Soldiers of the Week:

Deployed:

SPC Taylor Douglas, of E Co, 40th Brigade Engineer Battalion was recognized this week by the Strike Brigade for his work ethic and unmatched mechanical skill. As a Bradley Fighting Vehicle System Maintainer (91M), he was directly responsible for maintaining and preparing Task Force Ram's M2A3's for Gunnery. His efforts resulted in the only consistently maintained platforms that not only qualified crews from TF Rams, but also Task Force Regulars.

Additionally, he cross-trained himself on the ABV and Wolverine platforms by learning from his fellow 91A's. His determined self-motivation led him to also learn how to work with the M88 Recovery Vehicle. He demonstrated his newfound proficiency when he recovered a mired NMC M88 under poor weather conditions and returned it to FMC status in less than 48 hours.

When asked why he served, he said, "I knew from a young age that I wanted to follow in my grandfather's footsteps."

Rear:

SSG Alexander Stillwaugh (from East Wenatchee, WA) is a Fire Support Specialist (13F) in HHB, Iron Thunder 4-27 FA. He was recognized for his dedication to digital systems on the M3A3 Bradley Fire Support Teams (BFiST), which has been instrumental in the 'preventative maintenance checks and services' (PMCS) process. He was selected to perform a "train the trainer" class on digital systems that fully integrates his knowledge and ability of the BFiST's. He has developed eight lower enlisted Soldiers, and further expanded the knowledge of six Fire Support NCO's and three second Lieutenant's.

He has been an integral part of the FiST's success in the 'Call for Fire Trainer' by leading classes that further develop a skill level 10's knowledge and setting them up for success in preparation for FiST certification. His dedication to the mission and well-being of his fellow Soldiers is not only appreciated, but also stands as a testament to his commitment to unit success.

-

COL Wagner commented, "From Command Post down to maintainers turning wrenches, it all enables us to win as a team."

Both SPC Douglas and SSG Stillwaugh are key members of the #IronBrigade Team!

Today we saw the end of an era as the F FSC CDR, CPT Quiñones-Medina, relinquished command to CPT Colon. This comes three weeks after his battle buddy, 1SG Sablan, relinquished responsibility to 1SG Tuialuuluu.

F FSC flourished under the leadership of CPT Quñones-Medina and 1SG Sablan and the organization is grateful for the legacy they are leaving with the new command team. We wish them well in all of their endeavors and we welcome the new F FSC command team to the Iron Thunder Family.

Great work, SGT Tran!

You and your Team have been tirelessly working at the Westbrook Quarantine site for the past few months. You represented the unit very well and we are all very thankful for your dedication to the mission and your Soldiers.

Strike Soldiers of the Week:

Deployed:
SSG Brett Kuenzi was recognized this week by the Strike Brigade for his outstanding service in C Company, 1-6 IN. SSG Kuenzi is a M1 Armor Crewman (19K) who recognized a deficiency, that the training area they were going to be doing gunnery at did not have a range tower to manage targets. To address this issue, SSG Kuenzi took an LMTV and modified the back of it, creating 5x work stations for the following functions: RTO, VCE, TGT Operator, Spotter, and Admin.

In short, he created a mobile Tactical Operations Center in an area that didn't have one, allowing Master Gunners to maintain communication between stations. SSG Kuenzi made this from scratch for his BN.

Rear:
While the Iron Brigade is deployed, there are still many #StrikeSoldiers back at home doing amazing work. SGT Du Tran, a Combat Medic (68W) assigned to 4-27 FA, is currently assigned as the Non-Commissioned Officer-in-Charge for the Task Force Westbrook Quarantine Site. He is directly responsible for the care, well-being, management, and daily temperature checks of as many as 2,500 personnel.

When not on shift at the quarantine site, he works as the acting Platoon Sergeant for the Medical Platoon, executing conventional and medical equipment maintenance and services.

It's because of Soldiers like SSG Kuenzi and SGT Tran that 2/1 ABCT not only succeeds, but also is able to take care of their soldiers.

Great job, SGT Wilkinson!! 🇺🇸

Strike Soldier of the Week:

SGT Andrew Wilkinson was recognized this week by the Strike Brigade for his outstanding service in B Battery, 4-27 FA. SGT Wilkinson, given minimal time for preparation and training, stepped up to serve as a Howitzer Section Chief during Artillery Table XII.

When COL Wagner asked him why he joined the Army, SGT Wilkinson said, "I wanted to follow in my dad's footsteps. I wanted to be part of that...defending the nation."

It's because of Soldiers like SGT Wilkinson that 2/1 ABCT is trained and ready to fight to protect our nation, at home and abroad.
