The 2d Battalion, 3d Field Artillery (“Gunners” or “Two Thirds“) was the Direct Support Field Artillery battalion to the Ready First Brigade of the 3d Armored Division during Operation Desert Storm. The Gunner Battalion was also one of the last two combat-deployed artillery battalions to return to home station. This portion of the RFCT website is dedicated to documenting the history of this battalion during Operation Desert Storm…
