    3ID is one of the ones I've saw during my google search, as well as a few others.

    I would've thought that the Army would have a site via AKO, where you could look up various units and see who they are attached to, as far as unit patches go and what not.

    What confuses me about the 233rd link you posted is the following:

    To provide motor transportation support to:

    1). The United States Army Armor Center, Fort Knox, Kentucky
    2). The United States Army Infantry School, Fort Benning, Georgia
    3). 3rd Infantry Division, Fort Stewart, Georgia
    4). 3rd Brigade, 3rd Infantry Division, Fort Benning, Georgia


    Second Platoon and Third Platoon

    Second and Third Platoons, located in BLDG 2944, Fort Knox, KY, consist of 24 M1070 HET's per platoon. The primary mission of Second and Third Platoons is to deploy as separate FORSCOM detachments. The mission at Fort Knox includes providing heavy equipment support for the United States Army Armor Center (USAARMC).

    ----------

    3ID would be the Benning portion no?

    Yeah, I think that even though they support the 3ID, that wouldn't mean they would wear the 3ID patch. They should have their own patch. (but I have no idea what that patch is)

    I'm going to admit it's been a LONG time since I've been to Knox. Is the 1ATB using 1st Armor's patch?

    Wait, just checked (third link Ranger-AO gave). Close, but a bit different. I see 5-15 Cav is still active. Made me smile seeing that. I'd looked up my DS from back in the day a few months ago, seems he made CSM somewhere. Good guy.

    I just called and spoke to the XO. They wear the FORSCOM patch. They aren't attached to the 3/81st anymore...now they're attached to 3/16 Calvary Squadron. Though the Cav uses the Armor Center patch ...which I suspect to be the Soldiers of Steel patch shown above.

    Thanks for solving this puzzle...I've been told everything from 3ID, 1AD, 106th something..etc...

    FORSCOM it is.
