LINEAGE: READY LIGHTNING
One of three theater signal commands in the Army, the 335th SC (T) has the distinction of serving in Iraq and Afghanistan longer than any other command in the Army Reserve.
Near the end of the Korean War, the unit was constituted in Atlanta, Georgia, Feb. 13, 1953, and activated two weeks later as Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 335th Signal Group, under Third Army. A change in the Army’s structure upgraded the unit to a brigade in October 1984.
Over the next generation, it would be restructured several times before being elevated to a major command as a result of Army Reserve restructuring initiatives. After 9/11, the 335th deployed as a forward signal command element to Camp Doha and Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, in the U.S.Central Command area of responsibility.
The command has had an enduring presence in Southwest Asia since November 2001. Today, the 335th SC(T) is regularly tasked in support of our nation’s overseas unified land operations.
Its primary mission remains the planning, engineering, installation, maintenance, and defense of the Army’s portion of the Global Information Grid in Southwest Asia. Beginning in 2014, the 335th SC(T) also assumed the role of the Cyber Functional Command for America's Army Reserve.
