SOURCE DOCUMENT ADVISORY

Digital images were created from printed source
documents that, in many cases, were photocopies of
original materials held elsewhere. The quality of
these copies was often poor. Digital images reflect
the poor quality of the source documents.

Where possible images have been manipulated to
make them as readable as possible. In many cases
such manipulation was not possible. Where
available, the originals photocopied for publication
have been digitized and have been added,
separately, to this collection.

Searchable text generated from the digital images,
subsequently, is also poor. The researcher is
advised not to rely solely upon text-search in this
collection.

Items collected here were originally published by the
Florida National Guard, many as part of its SPECIAL
ARCHIVES PUBLICATION series. Contact the Florida

DIGITIZATION

Titles from the SPECIAL ARCHIVES PUBLICATION series

I "the'finest regiment in the world".
Upon l1 ocassions,the Regiment was called into active state duty for the suppression of

SMiscellaneous History lI9th TFA ,Bn

The ll9th traces its history back to 1923 when its parent organ, 2ndBn ll6th FA, was
:federally recognized. It was called into Fed Serv-25 Niov40 and reported to Camp Blanding
-:where it was designated as the 149th. It was the first motorized artillery battalion in
;: the US Army. It went overseas 10 Feb 19l4 and disembarded at Oro Bay, New Guinea. The
battalion moved into combat on 4 July followed by a month of savage fighting. Later it was
ililanded on Morotai where one battery supported the seizure of the Mapia Islands nearby.
Landing on Mindanao, the battalion fought until 22 May, when all units were relieved for
Shipment back to the US.
'It primary mission is to support the 124th Inf Regt in Combat, the same role it filled
during WII.
