An interview for the history books, the 85th Support Command reflects on 100 years
U.S. Army Reserve Lt. Col. Daniel Jaquint, left, Chief of Staff, 85th Support Command, and Mr. Anthony Taylor, Public Affairs Specialist, 85th Support Command, participate in a live taping interview at the Pritzker Military Museum & Library in Chicago, June 5, 2017. Jaquint and Tay-lor spoke on the history of the 85th Support Command dating back to World War I. The 85th Support Command’s lineage began when they were formed as the 85th Infantry Division at Camp Custer, Michigan, where the division was nicknamed the “Custer Division,” on Aug. 5, 1917. The Division was deactivated in 1945 following World War II, then later reactivated in Chicago on February 19, 1947 into the U.S. Army Reserve as a training division. The 85th Spt. Cmd. is celebrating its centennial anniversary this year. (U.S. Army Photo by Sgt. Aaron Berogan/Released)
