Bravo Company, 115th Brigade Support Battalion

Bravo Company, 115th Brigade Support Battalion Standards, No Compromise... The 115th Brigade Support Battalion is a battalion of the United States Army. Organized at Camp Henry Knox, Kentucky in 1919 as the 657th Motor Transport Company, it was re-designated the 84th Motor Transport Company on 1 December 1919.

Since that time, many re-designations have occurred as the United States Army has changed. History of the 115th Brigade Support Battalion The 115th Brigade Support Battalion carries the history, lineage, and colors of the 15th Supply Transport Battalion, which predates the 1st Cavalry Division itself. Since that time, many re-designations have occurred in order to keep pace with the constant change of the United States Army. With the post World War I demobilization, the 84th was inactivated only to reappear on the active Army rolls in 1956. Its new re-designation was Troop D, 16th Quartermaster Squadron, which was listed as an element of the 1st Cavalry Division. The troop traveled with the division throughout its World War II campaigns in the Pacific theater. Troop D was moving with the division when it earned its initial first designation, "First in Manila" during the campaign to retake the Philippine Islands. As the Japanese will to fight evaporated on the clouds of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Troop D marched into Japan when the division achieved its second motto, "First in Tokyo". During the occupation, the troop became the quartermaster support unit for the division. In 1949, the troop became the 15th Quartermaster Company and moved to Korea in 1950 to participate in combat supplying of the 5th, 7th, and 3rd Cavalry Regiments, Division Artillery, and Special Troops. The 15th Quartermaster Company fought with the division north across the 38th Parallel. In the invasion of North Korea, the First Team’s third accolade, "First in Pyong Yang" was added to the battle honors of the division and its quartermaster company. The 15th Quartermaster Company remained in Korea after the war and with the activation of "ROAD" division in 1963 was combined with the 23rd Transportation Battalion and re-designated as the 15th Supply and Transport Battalion. In 1965, the 15th Supply and Transport Battalion returned to Fort Benning, Georgia with the 1st Cavalry Division and organized as a part of the Army’s first airmobile division. From 1 July 1971 until the end of the year, the unit served in the Republic of Vietnam. During its tenure in Vietnam, it participated in many campaigns to include the Tet Counteroffensive. While in Vietnam, the 15th Supply and Transport Battalion received the Presidential Unit Citation, the Valorous Unit Award, three Meritorious Unit Commendations, and four Vietnamese Crosses of Gallantry. Upon its return to the United States in 1971, the 15th Supply and Transport Battalion and the 1st Cavalry Division moved to Fort Hood under the TRICAP concept. In January 1975, the 1st Cavalry Division was reorganized, becoming the Army’s newest armored division. The 15th Supply and Transport Battalion adapted itself quickly to meet the ever-changing logistical needs of the division. In 1984, the entire structure of the Division Support Command (DISCOM) underwent a dynamic change. Support battalions were activated, incorporating previous elements of the 15th Supply and Transport Battalion, the 15th Medical Battalion, and the 27th Maintenance Battalion. These units had previously provided brigade-level combat service support as forward area support teams; thus was born the 1st Forward Support Battalion on 1 October 1984. The 1st Forward Support Battalion took on the mission of supporting 1st Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division. Under the initial support battalion concept, the newly formed battalions had no history and lineage and only generic colors. This problem was corrected in 1987 when the Department of the Army and the Institute of Heraldry re-designated all support battalions. The 1st Forward Support Battalion became the 115th Support Battalion (Forward) on 15 May 1987 and given the full lineage, honors and colors of 15th Supply and Transport Battalion. In October 1990, the 115th Forward Support Battalion deployed to Saudi Arabia for Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm and provided logistical support to the soldiers of the 1st Brigade Task Force. During Operation Desert Storm, traversing 260 kilometers into the heart of Iraq, the 115th Forward Support Battalion met the challenge of providing continuous logistical support. In the spring of 2003, the 1st Cavalry Division was organized under the FORCE XXI structure. The creation of multi-functional logistics companies with the FORCE XXI Forward Support Battalion consolidates all classes of supply and maintenance organizational elements currently embedded within the maneuver battalions with the direct support capability currently in the Forward Support Battalion. The new 115th Forward Support Battalion, with "centralized" combat service support, provides all logistical support, and tied together the entire spectrum of supplies and services for the maneuver battalions within the 1st Brigade Combat Team (BCT). It consisted of three forward support companies (FSCs), a brigade support company, a medical company, and a headquarters and distribution company. In March 2004, the 115th Forward Support Battalion deployed to the Persian Gulf for Operation Iraqi Freedom II. The battalion mastered a myriad of new tasks and challenges as it adapted to the rapidly changing environment in and around Baghdad during their year-long deployment. Continuing their lineage of excellence, the 115th Forward Support Battalion provided first-class logistical support to the 1st Brigade Combat Team during periods of intense combat in Sadr City, and during the landmark first free Iraqi election. In 2005, the Army moved from a division-based force structure to brigade-based. The 1st Brigade Combat Team re-structured as Interim Brigade Combat Team, incorporating the previous elements of the 1st Battalion, 82d Field Artillery Regiment; 312th Military Intelligence Battalion; 20th Engineer Battalion; 13th Signal Battalion; and 115th Forward Support Battalion. On 12 July 2005, the 115th Forward Support Battalion became the 115th Brigade Support Battalion and re-aligned from DISCOM to the 1st Brigade Combat Team under the new structural concept. The 115th Brigade Support Battalion provides distribution-based, centrally-managed combat service support to 1st Brigade Combat Team to sustain its operational employment in small scale contingencies. The unit has a reputation within the 1st Cavalry Division for getting the job done and "Making it Happen," a phrase that describes the hard-charging spirit of the battalion and the men and women who serve in it.

Mission: The Army’s mission is to fight and win our Nation’s wars by providing prompt, sustained land dominance across the full range of military operations and spectrum of conflict in support of combatant commanders.

MULESKINNER 6 Resiliency Challenge of the Day #4

MULESKINNER Family,

Today I challenge you to stay productive. We all have that one spot (or perhaps two or three) that could use some organization. I challenge you to do one thing to get better organized. From the junk drawer to the hall closet, home office or garage, getting one space in order can lead to a sense of pride and accomplishment. Creating organized spaces in our lives can enhance feelings of control and calm, which we can all use right now.

Stay safe and continue to watch out for one another,

MULESKINNER 6 Resiliency Challenge of the Day #3

MULESKINNER Family,

Even though we are staying physically separated from those we love, we can still maintain an emotional contact. Today, I challenge you to call two people in your life that you haven’t talked to in a while. It could be a friend from high school, your Aunt, an old battle buddy from two or three moves ago…..anyone at all. Surprise someone and rekindle that social connection. You will be surprised how much it will brighten your day and that of the person you reach out to.

Stay safe and continue to watch out for one another,

Photos from Bravo Company, 115th Brigade Support Battalion's post

The BONECRUSHER Service and Recovery section assisted 215th BSB, 3ABCT with the movement of the Wolverine Bridge System. The operation was a collective task completed by the Service and Recovery section utilizing the capabilities of the M88A2-"Hercules". It was a great opportunity for the BONECRUSHERS to conduct training on proper Rigging Operations. Using the Boom and Hoist system from the M88A2, lifting chains were attached with shackles to designated lift points on each portion of the bridge. This allowed stabilization of the overhead load. The M88A2's main winch is attached to the bridge section in conjunction with guy lines. The guy lines are used to prevent swaying and oscillation of the overhead load. Safety is paramount! The guy lines, proper personal protective equipment, and the proper supervision ensure safe execution of the movement. On daily basis, these Soldiers continue to prove that there is no mission they can not accomplish. The BONECRUSHERS continue to provide support when called....On time....Every time...STANDARDS, NO COMPROMISE!!!
