3rd Battalion, 6th Field Artillery Regiment

3rd Battalion, 6th Field Artillery Regiment This is the official page of 3-6 FA and its Family Readiness Group. All Soldiers, Family and friends of 3-6 FA, past and present, are encouraged to join.

The 3d Battalion, 6th Field Artillery traces its lineage to Stilles’ Company of Artillerists, formed in 1798. The Battalion’s first campaign streamers were earned during the Civil War, where it participated with the Union Army (as Battery K, 1st U.S. Artillery) in twelve major campaigns including Manassas, Fredericksburg, Antietam, Gettysburg and Appomattox. Redesignated Battery B, the unit was stationed at Fort Riley following the Civil War, deploying to Cuba during the Spanish American War and earning the Santiago campaign streamer. Shortly after, the 25th Battery (lettered batteries became numbered batteries during the artillery reorganization of 1901) participated in defeating the Philippine Insurrection, 1902 – 1903, equipped with 3.2 inch guns, Vickers-Maxim gatling guns, and mule-borne 3.6 inch mortars (3-6th FA maintains a bronze panther in the battalion headquarters that was presented as a gift by the Philippine Government in 1903 during service in the Philippines). On 31 May 1907, the 6th Regiment, Field Artillery (Horse) was formed with the 2d, 22d, 25th, 7th, 20th, and 21st batteries forming batteries A through F, respectively. Shortly afterwards (1914), the 6th Field Artillery (Horse) deployed to the Mexican border and was personally selected by General “Blackjack” Pershing to participate in the Punitive Expedition into Mexico in pursuit of Pancho Villa in 1916, returning to the United States in 1917. Alerted for deployment to Europe on 21 July 1917, the Regiment was again selected by General Pershing, this time to form the core of the field artillery support for the 1st Expeditionary Division (later to become the 1st Infantry Division), deploying by rail from Arizona to New York City and embarking on troop ships on 31 July. At 0605 on 23 October 1917, Battery C, 6th Field Artillery (now equipped with the famous French 75mm howitzer), fired the first round fired in anger by the American Expeditionary Force. Serving with the 1st Infantry Division throughout the war, the Regiment earned seven campaign streamers, to include participation in the St. Mihiel and Meuse-Argonne campaigns. Throughout the war, the Regiment mastered newly developed techniques of close supporting fires to the Infantry, earning the reputation of providing accurate and rapid fires (“three rounds in the air and one in the breach”) while supporting the 1st Infantry Division’s infantry regiments. Leaving one battalion to participate in occupation duty in Germany after the war, the rest of the Regiment redeployed to the United States and was established at Fort Hoyle, MD (current site of Aberdeen Proving Grounds). Throughout the late 1920s and early 1930s, the 6th Field Artillery participated in a series of experiments with mechanization (while still being maintained as a horse artillery organization). On the eve of WWII, it was attached to the 8th Infantry Division on 22 June 1940 and then assigned to the 37th Infantry Division on 8 August 1942. During WWII, the 6th Field Artillery (now equipped with the 75mm pack howitzer), participated in two campaigns in the Pacific Theater (Northern Solomon and Luzon (with arrowhead)), to include the liberation of Manila in 1944 (the flag from the Japanese Army Headquarters in Manila is now displayed in the 3-6 FA headquarters). Inactivated at the end of WWII, the battalion was reactivated at Fort Sill, OK on 1 August 1946 and supported the FA School. It was reorganized and designated the 3d Howitzer Battalion, 6th Field Artillery in May 1958. Deploying to the Republic of Vietnam in 1966 equipped with the 105mm self-propelled howitzer, 3d Battalion, 6th Field Artillery participated in 10 campaigns throughout the central highlands until it was redeployed to the United States in 1970 and inactivated on 10 April 1970. Rejoining the 1st Infantry Division on 13 September 1972, 3d Battalion, 6th Field Artillery was the pioneer unit in converting to the M270 MLRS system in 1983. Deactivated (again) on 16 March 1987, the lineage continued with Battery B (MLRS), 6th Field Artillery as a separate battery, participating with the 1st Infantry Division and adding two more campaign streamer’s to the Regiment’s history. On 10 December 1995, the colors of the 3d Battalion, 6th Field Artillery, with its 36 campaign streamers, three foreign awards and a valorous unit award (Battery A) joined the 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry). From November of 2001 through May 2002, the battalion deployed to the Balkans as the Centaur Task Force in support of Operation Joint Guardian. While the majority of the battalion conducted stability and support operations at various locations throughout the Province of Kosovo, Batteries B and C, deployed to the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, providing the security force for Camp Able Sentry. Simultaneously, battalion fire Support Elements deployed to other locations throughout the world. 2-22d Infantry fire supporters deployed to Bosnia in support of Operation Joint Forge and 1-87th Infantry fire supporters deployed to Uzbekistan and Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. In July of 2003 the Centaurs answered duty’s call again, deploying in support of Coalition Task Force Warrior for Operation Enduring Freedom IV. The Centaurs learned new TTPs and weapon systems like the 120mm mortar as they occupied firebases on the frontiers of freedom. With names like Shkin, Orgun-E, Asadabad, Salerno, Qalat, Gecko, Ghazni, and even more austere places than wherever they were needed.. Throughout 2003, Centaurs played key roles in every operation in country: Mountain Viper, Mountain Resolve, Secure Future, Mountain Avalanche, and Mountain Storm. The Centaurs rang in the New Year of 2004 with a new, additional, and significant mission. In January, the battalion quickly transitioned from masters of indirect fire to a maneuver task force. With elements of civil affairs and PSYOPS teams, a military police company, and a Romanian infantry company now attached, Task Force Centaur was responsible for securing the greater Kandahar City area and the outer Kandahar Airfield. That area quickly expanded as the battalion took on greater and greater responsibilities for security, stability, and reconstruction of the Kandahar Province. Operation Secure Future and Mountain Storm saw Centaurs providing indirect fires across 6 provinces, even while Task Force Centaur secured 25,000 square kilometers of territory in Southern Afghanistan. After returning to Fort Drum from a successful mission in Afghanistan, the Centaur Battalion transformed its structure to incorporate new assets: a meteorological section and forward support company and to give firing platoons the ability t operate autonomously, all the while preparing for its next mission in Iraq. In August 2005, the Centaur Battalion again made history as the first newly designed Fires Battalion to deploy to combat. In Iraq the Centaurs served as the Area Defense Operations Center (ADOC) on the Victory Base complex in Western Baghdad. With 400 Soldiers and 102 Ugandan contractors, Task Force Centaur was charged with the security and force protection for over 30,000 Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, coalition partners, and associated civilian workers on Camp Liberty. In addition, the battalion was charged with securing 25 square kilometers of battle space and 17 kilometers of perimeter wall, as well as maintaining and securing 3 Access Control Points to the base complex. The Centaur Battalion did all this while providing continuous all-weather fire support to all of Western Baghdad. In April 2007, the BN was notified of its next mission to support OIF 07-09 in Kirkuk Iraq. During the deployment the BN maintained 24 hour indirect fire support at two outlying patrol bases and was responsible for 3,500 square kilometers of battle space. Additional the BN was partnered with the 46th Iraqi Army Brigade and the Iraq Power and Oil infrastructure. As a result of the BN’s efforts, Iraq exported over 170 million barrels of oil bringing much needed reconstruction money to the Iraq government. In November of 2008 the BN redeployed to Fort Drum, N.Y. In March 2010, the Battalion deployed to Faryab Province in Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. The Centaur Battalion operated out of three FOBS in RC-North, working intimately with Norwegian, Swedish, and Latvian partners to further legitimize Provincial and District governments through personal engagement and the application of money as a weapon system. These efforts resulted in increasing the capabilities and capacities of the Afghan Police and disrupted insurgent efforts which strengthened the population’s confidence in the government and paved the way for the strategic completion of the Ring Road. The Battalion redeployed to Fort Drum, NY in March of 2011 to begin training for their next mission. The “Swift and Bold” battalion remains ready to provide accurate and timely fires anytime, and perform all other missions as may be directed, anywhere in the world. FIELD ARTILLERY US ARMY

U.S. Army Fort Drum & 10th Mountain Division

Good afternoon, everyone! We have some news to share regarding the installation’s COVID-19 safety protocol. Fort Drum General Order 1F has been released today, and here’s the basic summary for your situational awareness.

- Travel Impacts -

There are currently 10 areas within New York state and the surrounding area that are restricted to service members. These are: Erie County, NY; Nassau County, NY; New York City, NY; Suffolk County, NY; Hampden County, MA; Suffolk County, MA; Essex County, NJ; Allegheny County, PA; Philadelphia County, PA; and Canada.

The 350-mile travel radius is no longer in effect. However, the local travel area is defined as the state of New York and its five contiguous states (New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont).

Service members may travel to unrestricted areas within the local travel area with DA-31 approval by the first O-3 in their chain of command. Commanders (O-3) can grant ordinary leave, regular pass or special pass to unrestricted areas.

Service members are restricted from non-PCS/TDY travel outside the local travel area.

Commanders (O-6) can approve travel for medical and legal appointments within off-limit areas (except Canada). Only O-6 commanders can authorize ordinary leave, regular pass or special pass outside of the local travel area. A waiver to travel restrictions may be requested if the travel is necessary due to extreme hardship, humanitarian reasons or PCS orders.

TDY and PCS travel to and from professional military programs is exempt from travel restriction.

Service members have a responsibility to inform their chain of command and submit a DA Form 31 to obtain approval to meet with, or reside with, any non-local visitor or geographically-separated dependent or family member during the regular pass period.

- Gatherings -

Service members are limited to on-post public gatherings of no more than 25 people when outside to maintain physical distancing guidelines. On-post indoor gatherings are permitted when able to maintain physical distancing at no more than 50-percent capacity.

Any indoor or outdoor gatherings at a private residence will be limited to no more than 10 people.

- On-post facilities –

Facilities and venues can continue to operate at up to 50-percent capacity with current COVID-19 safety protocols in place.

All fitness and dining facilities will continue to operate under current occupancy numbers and hours, with physical distancing and cleaning protocols in place.

- School children testing guidelines –

NYS requires that any child sent home from school or childcare for possible COVID symptoms must have a negative COVID test before being allowed to return to the classroom. The following procedures are now in effect:

1.) If a child is suspected of being symptomatic, they will be sent home from their school or childcare facility.

2.) The child is then scheduled within 24 hours for appointment at the Bowe Troop Medical Clinic (if seen on post) or with their off-post health care provider.

3.) If the child is screened by the health care provider and is suspected of being COVID positive, they will be placed in isolation until at least 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared. Family members are also required to quarantine as potential close contacts. While a negative test result will not terminate the isolation period, it is required for return to school or childcare.

4.) If the child is not suspected of being COVID positive, they are then sent off post for COVID testing (or receive a test from their off-post health care provider). Once there is a negative COVID test result, there is no requirement to quarantine or isolate for any of the child’s family members.

5.) If the child is diagnosed with another condition by their health care provider, that diagnosis is then verified by lab work. The child will stay at home until symptoms are resolved, and then can return to school with a note from the health care provider verifying their condition.

Please remember that the wear of masks is still required anytime you cannot maintain a distance of six feet or more in all public facilities. Also ensure you continue to comply with state requirements by wearing your mask over your mouth and nose when off post in an area where you cannot maintain a safe social distance.

You can find all the GO 1F updates on the Fort Drum website at www.home.army.mil/drum. Be safe, and have a great weekend!

We haven’t done one of these updates in a while and this one’s got a lot of info so it feels a little nostalgic doesn’t it? Let’s get right to it: Effective immediately Albany, Monroe, Onondaga, and Oneida counties are no longer on the list of restricted areas. Service Members may travel to these counties freely as they fall within the 350-mile local travel area. Please be aware that the travel radius itself has not changed and non-DoD ID card holders wishing to visit the installation still require a signed Exception to Policy even if they are traveling from within that 350-mile radius. We’re all very excited to get to Chick-fil-A but please continue to use caution in your travels: practice social distancing, wear your mask and wash your hands frequently.

There have been some changes at the DEERS/ID Card Office this week starting with the appointment scheduler being back online: https://idco.dmdc.osd.mil/idco. Customers may also schedule an appointment by calling (315) 772-5149. If you have a Uniformed Services ID (USID) card (dependent, retiree, all non-CAC cards) that expired on or after Jan. 1, 2020, it is now considered valid through June 30, 2021 and can be used to access bases and benefits. Finally, the ID Card office hours of operations have changed:
Monday - 8:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m
Tuesday - 7:45 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.
Wednesday - 9:05 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.
Thursday - 7:45 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.
Friday - 8:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.
Closed federal holidays and open on DONSAs.

Also, an update from Fort Drum FMWR: beginning 1 October Magrath Pool will be open for Service Members only from 0600 to 0800 and open to all DoD ID card holders by reservation ONLY from 0800 to 1330. The pool will be able to accommodate 25 participants at a time, parents must accompany children and all aquatics rules still apply.

I know this is a long shot, but I have a little hope that through the power of the internet and the power of amazing military people, this may work. My husband, Derek James Deshaies, was stationed at Fort Drum 2003 to 2005. He served in Afghanistan 9/2003 to 4/2004. He was a 13B in A Battery, 4-25 Field Artillery Battalion. (ETA: He was in 3rd Battalion 6 Field artillery while in Afghanistan) He committed suicide shortly after returning home and leaving the Army under a medical discharge. I was young at the time (19) and struggled to keep up with all the details of his military career on top of my working and going to school full-time. Because of that, I don’t know who he served with and was hoping to connect with them to discuss that part of his life. If everyone could spread the word or knows anyone who served during the same time that may have known him, or knows him, it would be very much appreciated. Thank you all! 💕
I just wanted to say thank you to fox company for the beautiful and thoughtful flower arrangement they sent for my grandfathers funeral. It was beautiful, and as my grandfather was a Vietnam veteran, my grandmother was touched by the gesture. Thank you from my family to yours
Will the store be opening again anytime soon to purchase BN t-shirts/hoodies? Thanks!
Anything new going on since Sept 24th that you can share with us? Thx!
