NEWS 19PAD Ready Devils 180125-A-PU143-020.jpg

The 1st Brigade, 1st Infantry Division is one of the Army’s two oldest divisional brigades. The unit’s distinctive fleur-de-lis crest represents the brigade’s service in France where the unit saw combat after it was organized on 24 May 1917, under the newly formed First Expeditionary Force. 1st Brigade fought a host of campaigns during World War I, but deactivated in 1939 when the Army discontinued its brigade-based divisional structure. 1st Brigade was reactivated in July 1958 at Fort Benning, Georgia. In 1964, 1st Brigade joined the 1st Infantry Division at Fort Riley, Kansas, and was re-designated as the 1st Brigade of the Big Red One. The 1st Brigade deployed with the Big Red One to the Republic of Vietnam in 1965, subsequently fighting in ten campaigns encompassing 24 major battles. The Brigade returned to Fort Riley in 1970.
