265th Engineer Group
The 265th Engineer Group HQ in Georgia is normally affiliated with the 20th Engineer Brigade at Ft Bragg, which is assigned to XVIII Corps. Recently, however, the 265th participated in a WARFIGHTER exercise geared toward Korea and the 8th Army. This system permits greater flexibility in a small army.
The 265th Engineer Group (Georgia Army National Guard) and the 212th Engineer Company (Tennessee Army National Guard) were federalized on 21 November 1990. They completed validation, deployed, and closed into the Southwest Asia theater of operations in support of Operation Desert Shield on 12 December 1990. This process took a total of only three weeks as compared to the typical minimum of six weeks.
