Bravo Company 1/111th



There has always been a common bond between those serving in the
military and the VFW. An extension of this bond is the VFW's
Adopt-A-Unit program, which pairs a Post with a military unit. Besides
sending "goody" packages to the troops, Posts work on the local level to
offer moral support to the dependents left behind when a unit deploys.
The VFW Post 845 is happy to have Adopted Bravo Company 1/111th as their Unit.


28th Infantry Division (Mechanized)

The Army's "Oldest Division"


With its headquarters in Philadelphia, the 56th Brigade boasts being home to some of the oldest units in the Armed Forces. Units of the 111th Infantry trace their lineage back to 1747, when

Benjamin Franklin first established his famed "Associators" in Philadelphia. The battalions, as well as the brigade, carry battle streamers from nearly every conflict throughout American history.

The 56th Brigade is the only Army National Guard unit to have been selected for transformation into a Stryker Brigade Combat Team.
