3rd Brigade, 9th Infantry Division
3rd Brigade, 9th Infantry Division
Organized July 18, 1918, at Camp Sheridan, Ala., the 9th Infantry Division was in the United States when World War I came to an end. Reactivation took place in August 1940 at Fort Bragg, N.C., and subsequently the division took part in action in North Africa, on the Normandy beaches, across France, Belgium and Germany.
After launching combat operations in South Vietnam in December 1966, the Old Reliables scored major triumphs, including victories against main force Viet Cong units, initiation of sustained operations in the Mekong Delta, formation of a Mobile Riverine Force, discovery of on of the largest enemy weapons caches in the war and suppression of VC control in four populous provinces and helped foster a spirit of cooperation between the government and its citizens through civic action programs.
When the 9th became the first U.S. Army unit to redeploy from Vietnam in September and October 1969, the 1st and 2nd Brigades deactivated and the 3rd Brigade redeployed to Fort Lewis, Wash., where it, too, became deactivated.
