527th Engineer Battalion (Combat Heavy)
Members of the 527th Engineer Battalion, 528th Engineer Battalion, and 1083rd Transportation Company supported parish officials in Benton, LA after the Benton tornado disaster. Soldiers moved debris from the damage sites to a local dump area to help in the clean-up effort.
Beginning in January 2003, an element of the 527th Engineer Battalion were in Afghanistan to survey Bagram Air Field for various projects. It is not clear just how many from the battalion were deployed though some publications indicated that less then a dozen were surveying Bagram.
