3rd Battalion, 135th Aviation [AVIM]
As part of the wartrace, the 135th would provide maintenance support to the III Corps aviation brigade. While National Guard units are a fundamental part of the war trace plan, sometimes the active-duty counterparts need to be convinced. That is exactly the task undertaken by 3rd Battalion, 135th Aviation, Jefferson City. In early 1999 the unit sent 13 people to Fort Hood, Texas to participate in a warfighter exercise. Warfighter is a battlefield simulation exercise. Unit members split up and were sent to different units as part of the simulation. They put an emphasis on how important aviation maintenance is at that level.
As part of the wartrace, the 135th is also apparently traced to the XVIII Corps 18th Aviation Brigade .
