Organization: Organized as the 94th Infantry Division (ID) in the Territory of Puerto Rico in 1918, the division was never activated because of the end of World War I hostilities. The Division survived on paper until 1921 when it was constituted as an organized reserve unit dubbed “The Pilgrim Division,” as much because of its New England roots as the unit’s shoulder patch, depicting a blunderbuss wielding pilgrim.

Patton’s Army: As part of Patton’s 3rd Army, the 94th ID was known as “Patton’s Golden Nugget,” and fought in numerous battles within the European Theater of Operations. The 94th ID landed on Utah Beach, France, on 8 September 1944, and relieved the 6th Armored Division at Lorient and Saint Nazierre, where German Garrisons were besieged. There, the 94th engaged in containment activities until it was relieved by the 66th Infantry Division on 1 January 1945.

Battles Fought: It then moved into positions in the Saar-Moselle Triangle and relieved the 90th Infantry Division south of Wasserbilling. The 94th Division fought in the Battle of Nenning, the Battle of Orscholz, and the Battle of Berg. On 19 February 1945, supported by heavy artillery and air support, the Division attacked with all three regiments to breach the West Wall switch line defenses and clear the Burg-Munzingen Highway. It then followed the 10th Armored Division and cleared the Saar-Moselle Triangle below Ordholz and Saarburg. The Division crossed the Ruhr River by ford and bridge on 13 March 1945, participating in the Battle for Ludwigshafen. On 3 April 1945, the Division relieved the 102nd Infantry Division along the Rhine River in Germany. There it assumed responsibility for containing the western side of the “Ruhr Pocket.”

Restructuring: By mid April, the division relieved the 101st Airborne Division and assumed military government duties, first in the Krefeld vicinity and later in the area of Dusseldorf. It was in that status when hostilities were declared at an endo on 7 May 1945. The Division continued occupation and Military government duties in Dusseldorf, and then in Czechoslovakia until the end of November of 1945. The next significant event for the 94th Division occurred in 1967 when the Division was re-designated as the 94th Army Reserve Command (ARC), headquartered at Hanscom Air Force Base, Massachusetts. Two company level units within the 94th ARC served in Vietnam.

Operation Desert Shield / Desert Storm: In 1991 and 1992, over 1,000 Soldiers deployed from the 94th ARC in support of Operation Desert Storm and Desert Shield. In 1995, the 94th ARC was again re-designated in the Army Reserve as the 94th Regional Support Command (RSC) and moved to Fort Devens, Massachusetts.

Operations Joint Guardian and Joint Forge: The 94th RSC deployed Soldiers to Honduras and Guatemala in 1999 for Operation New Horizon and later to the Balkans in support of Operations Joint Guardian and Joint Forge.

Operations Noble Eagle, Enduring Freedom, and Iraqi Freedom: After 11 September 2001, the 94th RSC deployed Soldiers in support of Operations Noble Eagle, Enduring Freedom, and Iraqi Freedom. Mission areas have included the Continental United States (CONUS), Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, Iraq, Kuwait, Horn of Africa and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. In December 2002, the 94th RSC moved into its Headquarters at Devens, Massachusetts.

Army Reserve Transformation: In August 2003, the 94th RSC was re-designated the 94th Regional Readiness Command (RRC). The 94th Regional Readiness Command was comprised of more than 6,000 citizen-soldiers, who served with 56 units located throughout New England. The 94th RRC mobilized and deployed over 20 units and more than 2,500 Soldiers in support of the Global War on Terror. The 94th RRC was re-designated as the 94th Training Division (Force Sustainment) at Fort Lee (now Fort Gregg-Adams) on 16 September 2008.
