  • Information on A CO 5/46th Infantry 198 Bde 23rd INF DIV

    I have a friend that fought with this unit in Vietnam, he is searching for any information on his unit, ie Company rosters, photos, and individuals that served with him. If you know anyone please let me know.

      5th/46th Infantry

      The 5th Battalion, 46th Infantry was originally constituted in May 1917 and formally activated in June of the same year at Fort Benjamin Harrison, Indiana, from elements of the 10th Infantry Regiment.

      During World War II, the 46th Infantry Regiment became an Armored Infantry Battalion. The 46th Infantry served with the 5th Armored Division throughout the war, and before its deactivation in 1945, it had won five battle streamers. The unit was decorated with the Distinguished Unit Citation and the Luxembourg Croix de Guerre.

      In January, 1968, the 5th Battalion, 46th Infantry received its redeployment orders and was assigned to the 198th Infantry Brigade, Republic of Vietnam, in March, 1968.

      Since that time the unit has been engaged in combat operations. The men of the 5th Battalion, 46th Infantry are known as "The Professionals."

      I haven't found anything with detailed information concerning Vietnam.
