partial History(not edited)
Following World War II, the 745th Tank Battalion was inactivated on 27 October 1945 at Camp Kilmer, New Jersey. Three years later, on 14 September 1948, the Battalion was redesignated as the 63rd Heavy Tank battalion and activated in Germany as an element of the 1st Infantry Division. Company A, 745th Tank Battalion became Company A, 63rd Heavy Tank Battalion.
The unit was reorganized and redesignated on 10 October 1950 as the 63rd Tank Battalion. The Battalion served in West Germany until 1955, when it, along with the 1st Infantry Division, moved to Fort Riley, Kansas as part of Operation Gyroscope. The Battalion was inactivated at Fort Riley on 15 February 1957 and relieved from assignment to the 1st Infantry Division.
As part of ROAD (Reorganzied Objective Army Divisions), the Battalion was reorganized and redesignated on 25 January 1963 as the 63d Armor, a parent regiment under the Combat Arms Regimental System. Company A was reorganized and redesignated as Headquarters and Headquarters Company 1st Medium Tank Battalion, 63rd Armor. The 1st Battalion was then assigned to the 1st Infantry Division at Fort Riley, Kansas. The unit was reorganized and redesignated on 20 January 1964 as the 1st Battalion, 63rd Armor.
When the 1st Infantry Division deployed to Vietnam in 1965, the Battalion remained at Fort Riley. In 1969 it was posted to Fort Knox, Kentucky, returning to Fort Riley, Kansas in 1970, when the 1st Division came back from Vietnam. The Battalion was inactivated on 16 August 1987 and relieved from assignment to the 1st Infantry Division.
The unit was activated on 16 September 1987 at Fort Irwin, California and assigned 16 October 1991 to the 177th Armored Brigade. The 63rd Armor Regiment was reorganized under the US Army Regimental System with its home base at Fort Irwin, California. It was inactivated on 15 October 1994 at Fort Irwin, California, and relieved from assignment to the 177th Armored Brigade.
The unit was assigned on 16 February 1996 to the 1st Infantry Division and activated in Germany. The 1st Battalion, 63rd Armor Regiment continued to train in Germany, eventually becoming the 1st Infantry Division's immediate ready task force (IRTF).
In February 2003, the IRTF was attached to the 173rd Airborne Brigade (Seperate) and became the first airborne-inserted armor Battalion, called to support the northern operation into Iraq to provide a credible threat to the Iraqi forces. The remainder of the Battalion flew in later in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom II, returning home in February of 2004.
Upon returning to Germany, the 1-63rd Armor again cased their colors to support the troop drawdown in Germany. On 16 March 2008, the colors were brought back to Fort Riley, Kansas. The 2-70th Combined Arms Battalion was reflagged as the 1-63rd Armor. The 1-63rd Combined Arms Battalion was slated to deploy sometime in late 2008.
92nd Armored Field Artillery Battalion

UnUsual Variation of the patches shown in Kurt Keller's "Emblems of Honor" book


UnCommon variation, 92nd AFA BN, 3" wide Japan made, UnUsed.......(sold)

( was stored in gray cabinet )
- - - -
partial History
After serving in WWII with the 2nd Armored Division (Hell on Wheels) the Battalion was stationed at Camp/Fort Hood.
On 12 August 1950, the 92nd AFA Bn left San Francisco for Korea; understrength the BN was sugmented with 200 ROK soldiers.

The 92nd was attached to the 7th ID which was to follow the Marines on the Inchon Invasion.
The Red Devil Bn landed at Inchon on September 20th 1950.
Five days later, at Suwon airfield, Baker Battery fired the battalion's first round in Korea.
The 92nd, which was never in reserve in Korea, was to see over a thousand days of combat in the months ahead.

On October 10th , after the battalion's mission of aiding in the success of the Inchon landing was over,
the Red Devils marched 310 miles to Pusan for necessary repairs.

On November 5, 1950, the battalion took part in a second invasion, this time at Iwon on the East coast of Korea, north of the Hungham beachhead. The purpose of this landing was to close the vise on the communist North Korean forces.

Soon the Red Devils were given an important mission to perform. U.S. Marine and Army units were trapped by a new enemy, Divisions of Chinese Regulars, at the Chosin Reservoir. The 92nd AFA was to help hold the area open until the surrounded forces were withdrawn and had totally disengaged. The Red Devils performance was a major factor in saving these forces.

In January 1951, the 92nd and other U.N. units had ceased to be a withdrawing force and begun a new initiative in pushing northward. By March, the Red Devils were well seasoned in the realities of combat and the loss of fellow soldiers. The unit was confident and better prepared for the arduous tasks that awaited them. Readiness and combat preparedness of the battalion was proven on the morning of April 24, 1951 when "A" and "C" Batteries were attacked by a company size element of Chinese Regulars. The attacking forces were provided with heavy support consisting of mortar and automatic weapons fire. Enemy machine guns were destroyed by direct fire from the Howitzers and fire laid down by the 92nd's automatic weapons mowed the communists down as they made human wave attacks. On that fateful day the Red Devil battalion lost only four men killed and eleven wounded while the communist losses were set at 175-200 killed or wounded.

Many years ago a Veteran told me he was issued this Badge 2 times, once when he went on R&R to Japan and when he returned to Fort Lewis for discharge.

He still had his paperwork for the issuance of the Order of the Bayonet so there is no reason to doubt his recollections.

UI#42 -  RANGER C 9 "M", came from an old-time Military Family, possible Japan made in the 1950s(?).
        Looks like an Ice Axe hanging on the left ski; a coiled rope on the right ski; sled leaning on the skis(?).
       (A thought on the patch origin: Charlie Company, 3rd Battalion, 9th Infantry Regiment was Inactivated on June 20, 1959
        and relieved from assignment to the 2nd Infantry Division while stationed in Alaska. On the same day it was Redesignated HQs & HQs
        Company, 3rd Battle Group 9th Infantry Regiment.  The "M" on the mountain could be for Mount McKinley?)
