The 99th Readiness Division provides facilities, programs and services to Army Reserve Soldiers, Civilians and Families in the Northeast Region, to support Army readiness and sustain the all-volunteer force.

Originally organized as the 99th Division at Camp Wheeler, Georgia, July 23, 1918, the division was assigned to the Organized Reserve in 1921, and reorganized as the 99th Infantry Division.

The division arrived in the European Theater of Operations to defend a “quiet” 19-mile sector north of the Roer River. Seven days later, lead elements of the 1st SS Panzer Division drove into the center of the 99th ID’s sector. The 99th ID’s “Battle Babies” held the line, severely delaying the German Army advance. They remained engaged with enemy forces through the end of the war and inactivated on September 27, 1945.

From 1996 to 2007, the 99th ID underwent several changes to unit designation but a new 99th Regional Support Command activated in 2008 at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, New Jersey.

In October 2012, the 99th RSC headquarters established an emergency operations cell in preparation for Superstorm Sandy landfall and provided logistics support to three Army Reserve quartermaster detachments mobilized for storm recovery operations.
