The mission of the 5th Brigade, 75th Division (Mission Command Training) is to conduct pre-deployment Battle Command and Staff Training for Army command and control headquarters at directed locations in support of ARFORGEN to provide ready command teams and battle staffs proficient in battle command operations.
The 5th Brigade, 75th Division (Mission Command Training) was first constituted on 24 December 1942 in the Army of the United States as the 75th Quartermaster Company and activated on 15 January 1943 at Camp Atterbury, Indiana. As an element of the 75th Infantry Division, the Company participated in 3 campaigns in the European Theater of Operations during the Second World War: Rhineland, Ardennes-Alsace, and Central Europe. Following the end of the Second World War the Company was inactivated on 18 November 1945 at Camp Patrick Henry, Virginia.
The Company was allotted on 21 February 1952 to the Organized Reserve Corps and activated on 1 March 1952 at Houston, Texas. The Organized Reserve Corps was redesignated on 9 July 1952 as the Army Reserve, and the Company remained a part of this organization. The 75th Quartermaster Company was inactivated on 31 January 1955 at Houston, Texas.
On 1 October 1993, a unit with separate lineage and honors was constituted in the Army Reserve as Headquarters, 5th Brigade, 75th Division (Exercise), and activated at Kansas City, Missouri. This unit's location was changed in 1994 to Kansas City, Kansas and later to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. It was again changed on 1 February 1999 to Fort Riley, Kansas. The unit was reorganized and redesignated on 17 October 1999 as Headquarters, 5th Brigade, 75th Division (Training Support) before being inactivated on 15 April 2000 at Fort Riley, Kansas.
On 1 October 2006, the lineage and honors of the 75th Quartermaster Company were consolidated with that of Headquarters, 5th Brigade, 75th Division (Training Support). The consolidated unit concurrently designated as Headquarters, 5th Brigade, 75th Division (Training Support), and activated at Dublin, California. The entire 75th Division was subsequently reoriented to the mission command training role.
