TEXAS-BASED U.S. ARMY UNITS THAT SERVED; 1918 & 2018

Texas supported a significant number of U.S. Army organizations in the Great War, and many of these units still call Texas home. 2018 will mark their participation in key battles in 1918, from the Meuse-Argonne to St. Mihiel. Today these units are represented by U.S. Army, Army Reserve, and Texas National Guard organizations stationed around Texas. Here is our list of those U.S. Army organizations.

You can learn more about how to reach out to these military organizations on WWI Centennial commemorations during 2018-19 by attending the free Texas WWI Centennial planning conference on March 2, 2018 in Austin.  Thanks to the U.S. Army Center of Military History for their assistance in reviewing this compilation.
