T-Patchers! My dad was in the Texas National Guard when WWII broke out and they turned into the 36th Division. A field commission and 3 years in a German POW camp were some of the highlights of his m...ilitary career. I'm so proud to be the daughter of a T-Patcher! See More

Was in the 36th Airborne at
Camp Mabry in the early 70's
as a Parachute Rigger....
We stayed in the 36th when
the rest went as Armored .
The Riggers were a tight group
with Regular Full-Timers leading
the Company.

The social media people with the 36th ID are doing a great job. They have multiple posts daily on Facebook.

Some would say flipping this tire is easy. Try doing it at the end of an obstacle course that you have run with a field protective mask on the entire time during the Best Warrior competition at Camp Swift in Bastrop. These service members deserve a lot of credit for their never give up attitude displayed all week.

Did you know that the 36th has a sister division in the Reserves?

The 90th Division was established the same year as the 36th, made up of Soldiers from Texas and Oklahoma, fought at Meuse-Argonne in World War I, and earned some of the same streamers as we did in France and Central Europe in World War II, along with fighting at Normandy and Northern France.

Their patch has a similar symbology as well, with the "T" representing Texas and the "O" representing Oklahoma.


Let's give a shout out to our friends in the 90th Division, both past and present as they celebrate the 100th anniversary of their legacy.

Here is a selection of some of the patches photographed last week for my upcoming book "Citations and Decorations to Members of the 36th Division, A.E.F." As of the story, I will be illustrating the original 36th "Panther" Division logo, and explaining the change to the "Lone Star" Division, and then the shift to the "Arrowhead" Division. Thanks to my friend Lynn Payne for her assistance during the shoot!

Soldiers from Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 19th Special Forces Group (Airborne), 71st Expeditionary Military Intelligence Brigade, 36th Infantry Division, conducted both high altitude low opening and high altitude high opening day and night parachute jumps during military free fall sustainment training in Arizona for two weeks in late February. Exit altitudes ranged from 8,000 to 12,500 feet above ground level. Soldiers’ jump uniform profiles varied from just body armor a...nd a parachute to what is called a “full wall locker,” which includes weapon, oxygen system and rucksack. These training exercises are critical because they allow Soldiers to work on team standard operating procedures, aircraft exits, and body flight mechanics in the vertical wind tunnel while utilizing a variety of aircraft and receiving first-rate instruction from qualified professionals and military instructors.

The 36th Infantry Division headquarters building at Camp Mabry is getting a new look and our Assistant Division Commander - Operations, Brig. Gen. Patrick Hamilton, checked on the progress with project manager, Tom Loftis. The 100,000 square foot building was built in 1975 and although there have been several minor upgrades; this is the first full-scale renovation as a part of the State of Texas Armory Revitalization program. The timeline for completion and moving back in is scheduled for 2019. (U.S. Army National Guard photo by Master Sgt. Michael Leslie)

Lt. Col. Charles Wallace, the 36th Infantry Division chaplain, spoke to senior leaders of the National Guard Bureau on Feb. 28 about religious support operations conducted during his time as part of the NGB Joint Enabling Team in Puerto Rico for Hurricane Maria response efforts. CH Wallace provided guidance to other chaplains and lending a welcome ear to those in need. Great job representing the 36th, Texas and the Army. "In Spite Of Hell!"
