The 3rd Infantry Division Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion was activated on 12 November 1917 in Italy as Headquarters, Special Troops, 3rd Infantry Division. During WWII, the Battalion participated in Anzio campaign in Italy, followed by amphibious assault invading Southern France, subsequent movement up the Rhone River to join other American units in northeastern France and into Germany, capturing Hitler’s mountain retreat. DSTB ended the war in Salzburg, Austria. The unit was re-designated as the 3rd Replacement Company, 3rd Infantry Division on 10 January 1949. Shortly after, the Battalion joined operations in Korea, in Hamhung-Hungnam area. In the final outcome, 3rd ID pushed enemy troops to the 38th Parallel. The DSTB reorganized and re-designated on 1 July 1957 as the 3rd Administration Company and in 1972 as the 3rd Adjutant General Company. During this period, Battalion was stationed in Germany as a part of the main defense protecting Western Europe from the threat of attack by Eastern Bloc nations It was inactivated on 30 September 1985 in Germany and re-designated 16 May 2004 as Special Troops Battalion, 3rd Infantry Division, at Fort Stewart, Georgia. The DSTB deployed to Iraq in 2005, 2007 and most recently in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation New Dawn in October 2009. The Battalion’s decorations include two Presidential Unit Citations; one Meritorious Unit Commendation, two French Croix de Guerre, two Republic of Korea Presidential Unit Citations, and Bravery Gold Medal of Greece for Korea. Deployment: On our most recent deployment Soldiers of the Legion Battalion were responsible for providing critical information to the Division commander to enable him to make sound and timely decisions and execute battle command across the United States Division North Area of responsibility. They also provided Operational, intelligence, administrative and logistical support to the Commanders of the Bridge combat teams and Advise and assist Brigades. Additionally, Company and Battalion Staff elements provided Operational, administrative and logistical support to the twelve hundred Soldiers of Task Force Legion as well as Force Protection for over 20,000 Soldiers and Civilians of COB Speicher.

It has been a busy month for DHHB! Our great Soldiers just completed the first DHHB Base Defense Live Fire in 3ID history involving support from 3CAB with M240 mounted UH-60s and 120mm/81mm Mortar section from 3-15 IN. Our Soldiers completed day and night dry, blank, and live fire progressions of M4, M9, MK19, M240, M249, and .50cal in defense of the 3rd Infantry Division Forward Command Post. Very proud of their accomplishment!

******Power Update********

We have just received an update on the power situation here on Fort Stewart.

Although the majority of the power has been restored, we are still experiencing some challenges getting power restored to all areas. Additionally, we just had a transformer blow which resulted in the additional loss of power to some of the housing areas.

Crews are working as hard and safely as possible to restore power.

Newman Gym is open as a shelter around the clock if you need it.

We hope to have power restored in these areas tomorrow. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Message # 2 from the Commanding General

3ID / Fort Stewart / Hunter Army Airfield Soldiers, Civilians and Families:

Hurricane Matthew has passed through our area. We are strongly discouraging anyone from attempting to re-enter Fort Stewart, Hunter Army Airfield and local areas until further notice.

I am also asking everyone who did not evacuate to please stay in your homes and off the roads until we are able to assess the damages, get the roadways cleared and the down power lines secured.

Everyone must still take precautions and stay tuned to local weather stations for updates on road and weather conditions. There are still forecasts of high winds in the area that can pose a danger to falling trees, downed power lines, flying debris and unsafe driving conditions.

There is a lot of work left to do following this storm. We will spend the next several hours assessing the damage and responding to the needs of our communities and our Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield families.

The number one thing is to stay safe.

For friends and family outside our area, know that we are doing everything we can to take care of our Soldiers and Families and return Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield back to normal as quickly as possible. We will make effort to keep you informed. As always, your continued thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated.

Rock of the Marne!
