National Guard July 2012 : Page 8

LETTERS & UPDATES An Explanation Some readers questioned whether the cutline under the Starting Point photo “Small Feat” in the June issue was correct. It identifi ed a soldier wearing a 36th Infantry Division patch as a member of the Alaska Army National Guard’s Company B, 1st Battalion, 143rd Infantry (Airborne). The 36th Infantry Division and the 143rd Infantry Regiment have long been associated with the Texas National Guard, but the identifi cation is correct. The 1-143rd is headquartered in Texas and is part of the 36th Infantry Division. However, it has subordinate units in Alaska and Rhode Island. It’s also the Guard’s only airborne infantry battalion.
