Organization

Our organization is made up of members who served honorably in the battalion from World War II to the present: European Occupation; Cold War; Vietnam; Desert Storm; Bosnia; Kosovo; Iraq, and Afghanistan.  We presently have about 200 members whose ranks range from PFC to Major General. Our dues are only $10 a year.  We publish three newsletters a year and distribute them by e-mail (A few are sent US Mail to members without e-mail addresses). We hold a three-day reunion each September in different US cities. Our officers and board members are listed below:
