The Area 1 Support Activity (Provisional) was formed to assume the Base Operations Support (BASOPS) and quality of life missions from the 501st Corps Support Group. Area 1 enhances the capabilities of warfighters by allowing them to remain mission focused and continually improves the quality of life for all soldiers, civilians, and family members throughout the command. Area 1 is the largest of four areas on the peninsula having 42 of the 82 Army compounds within it's operational control. Area 1 West was activated on June 12, 1995. By October 1, Area 1 West had completely assumed the BASOPS mission for the then 41 separate installations distributed throughout Area 1 West's two subordinate commands, United States Army Garrison at Camp Casey and Camp Red Cloud. The Headquarters Company for Area 1 West was established on November 1, 1995. With the addition of Camp Page on June 13, 1996, the command was re-designated as Area 1 Support Activity.
