In October 2023, we held our biannual reunion in Washington DC. In the picture below, we had just completed laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetary in memory of those who served at the 28th Field Artillery Regiment. We welcomed several first time attendees, who said they will attend future reunions because they had such a great time. We are already planning another reunion in 2025. You can see pictures of this reunion here.

Membership in our association is open to any veteran and their family members who served honorably in the 28th Field Artillery Regiment. Membership is also open to any veteran and their family member who served in units stationed at Bleidron Kaserne, namely the 156 Maintenance Detachment, 501st MP Company and 1st Armored Division Band.
We represent the nearly 10,000 Veterans and their family members who were assigned to the 28th Field Artillery Regiment and specifically the 2nd Battalion, which was stationed at Bleidorn Kaserne, Ansbach Germany from 1968 through 1989. The 2nd Battalion 28th Field Artillery was reflagged as the 3rd Battalion 17th Field Artillery in 1988.
The 2nd Battalion 28th Field Artillery played an essential part in the Cold War and the Defense of NATO in Central Europe. The veterans of the 2nd BN 28th FA stood on the wall and said, “Not on my watch, to get to them you have to go through me”
In June, 2021, our Association dedicated a monument to honor the service of all veterans of the unit. This monument was placed in Constitution Park at the Home of Field Artillery, Fort Sill Oklahoma.
You can see more pictures of the monument, commemorative bricks and videos of the dedication ceremony, banquet, uncasing of the colors and FT Sill unit visit in the links below.
