110th Military Intelligence Battalion
A part of the US Army's modular force structure transformation included the creation of Brigade Special Troops Battalions. These units were designed to provide organic signals, engineering, military intelligence, military police, and other support which had historically been achieved by the habitual attachment of companies and platoons from units assigned to parent divisions. As a result of this transformation in the 10th Mountain Division, the 110th Military Intelligence Battalion was inactivated, its Companies reflagged and reassigned either Brigade Support Battalions within the Division. HHC, 110th Military Intelligence Battalion was reflagged HHC, 1st Brigade Special Troops Battalion. A Company, 110th Military Intelligence Battalion was reflagged B Company, 1st BSTB.
Originally constituted into the regular Army as 4 provisional companies attached to the 10th Support Command on 28 June 1988, the 110th Military Intelligence Battalion was activated at Fort Drum, New York on 13 December 1988 as a separate battalion of the 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry).
Since it's inception, the battalion has distinguished itself in virtually all of the Division's deployments and major training exercises. Among them, humanitarian relief in support of Hurricane Andrew Relief operations, Operations Restore and Continue Hope in Somalia, and most recently the first full battalion deployment to Haiti in support of Operation Uphold Democracy.
On 30 November 1995, the Battalion activated a fifth company to the current structure. Delta Company, a general support company, was added to the roster of the Battalion's already strong and steadfast roll call. The Battalion deployed a platoon in support of Operation Joint Guard/Joint Endeavor from 2 September 1997 to 12 July 1998, and spent an 8 month battalion deployment to Bosnia as part of SFOR in support of Operation Joint Forge.
