BATTALION HISTORY

The 57th Expeditionary Signal Brigade - Enhanced constituted in the Regular Army on 18 October 1927, the 57th Signal Battalion was not activated until 10 February 1941 at Camp Edwards, Massachusetts. Before its inactivation in September 1945, the Battalion would take part in seven World War II campaigns, a number made even more impressive considering that three of those campaigns—Naples-Foggia, Anzio, and Southern France—saw the Battalion hitting the beaches as part of the assault landings.

The Battalion would remain inactive for over twenty years, finally being reactivated on 16 May 1966 at Fort Hood in Texas. It would not be deployed to a combat zone again until the First Gulf War, where it served in all three of the campaigns and was awarded a Meritorious Unit Commendation. Since the launch of the War on Terrorism, the number of campaigns for which the Battalion will be credited has yet to be determined, but it has been awarded two Meritorious Unit Commendations as of 2019, with its Bravo Company entitled to an additional MUC.

Currently, the 57th Signal Battalion—now designated as the 57th Expeditionary Signal Battalion – Enhanced—is serves as a subordinate to the 11th Corps Signal Brigade and is stationed at Fort Cavazos, Texas.
