29TH DIVISION UNIT HISTORIES



The 29th Combat Aviation Brigade (CAB) began wearing the blue and gray patch upon its activation on Oct. 1, 1985, coinciding with the re-activation of the 29th Infantry Division.

Soldiers of the Blue and Gray supported operations in Bosnia as part of SFOR 10, and Kosovo as part of KFOR, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

More recently, the 29th CAB headquarters received the Army Superior Unit Award for its participation in the 2009 presidential inauguration.

Arriving in the Southwest Asia theater of operations on Sept. 30 2011, the 29th CAB supported operational maneuver from COB Taji, Iraq, and Camp Buehring, Kuwait, to ensure a successful completion to Operation New Dawn.

On Dec. 18, 2011, 29th CAB aircraft became the last U.S. rotary-wing aircraft in Iraq, as the 2515th Naval Air Ambulance Detachment and 1-111th General Support Aviation Battalion escorted the last remaining ground troops across the Kuwaiti border.

The 29th CAB broke new ground and set high standards in 2012 by participating in several major regional exercises with partner nations and supporting operations across six countries. It continues its long standing partnerships with the air forces of Estonia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Preamble: To perpetuate the friendships we cherish; to keep alive the spirit that never knew defeat;
to glorify our dead, and to further keep before our country, the record of the 29th Division in all the wars;
we associate ourselves in an organization
known as the 29th Division Association.
