Major units at Fort Benning include the 194th Armored Brigade, the 316th Cavalry Brigade, the 198th Infantry Brigade, and the 199th Infantry Brigade.

The 5th Squadron 15th Cavalry began in 1901 to serve in the Philippines, then the Cuban Pacification and the search for Pancho Villa until 1909. The cavalry served in France as one of just a handful of horse mounted units during World War One. After arriving in Europe in 1944, the 15th became known as the 15th Cavalry Group Mechanized and they were just in time to be a part of the Normandy Invasion on D-Day as a part of General Patton’s Third Army. In 1987, after years of inactivation and changing hands, the 15th Cavalry Regiment took over training cavalry scouts at Fort Knox, KY, and now trains them at Fort Benning. It is the only currently active squadron of the entire regiment.

1st Battalion 46th Infantry Regiment 706-544-8381
The 1st Battalion 46th Infantry Regiment was formed in 1917 to participate in World War One under the 9th Division until 1921 when it was deactivated. It was reactivated in 1943 as the 5th Armored Division, split into 3 parts; the 15th, 47th, and 46th Infantry Battalions. The 46th was a part of the 1944 Normandy Invasion and all 3 battalions were active during the Hurtgen Forest campaign, some of the worst conditions of the entire war. Until its service in Korea in 1967, the unit had been deactivated and reactivated many times post-World War Two. Over the next 4 years, until 1971, the 46th was involved in 12 campaigns in which it served with the 23rd Infantry Division and the 198th and 196th Infantry Brigades. After training quality soldiers at Fort Knox until 2010, the 46th continues to do the same at Fort Benning to this day.

After the 11th’s start in 1861 and many battles across the southern U.S. during the Civil War, the regiment participated in the Indian Campaigns, Spanish-American War in 1898, Puerto Rico Campaigns until 1913, and various border patrol duties along the American-Mexican border. As a part of General Patton’s Third Army, the 11th arrived in France during the Normandy landing of 1944 and fought its way across the country, helping to secure the city of Metz later in the process. The infantry was also a part of the Battle of the Bulge and an important crossing of the Rhine River which allowed Patton and his army to be first on the scene. This regiment was deployed to Korea in 1968 and saw various battles there before its return to Fort Carson, CO, in 1971.
