C Company, 13th Signal Battalion
As part of the Army's transformation towards a modular force, the 13th Signal Battalion and its subordinate companies were inactivated at Fort Hood on 15 July 2005. This inactivation was part of the transformation of the 1st Cavalry Division. As part of the modular transformation, assets previously held at division level, but were habitually attached to brigades during operations were made organic to those brigades.
In 1993, C Company, 13th Signal Battalion, "Bushmasters," was activated with the reflagging of B Company, 127th Signal Battalion, as part of the inactivation of the 7th Infantry Division (Light) at Fort Ord, California. The unit moved to Fort Hood, Texas as part of the process, becoming part of the 1st Cavalry Division's signal battalion. The Company subsequently supported the 1st Cavalry Division in Bosnia Herzegovina as part of the Stabilization Force 4 (SFOR4) rotation during Operation Joint Forge. The Company was also habitually attached to the the 1st Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division during operations, including rotations to the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, California.
