This then is the Pioneer history for 1968, a proud unit, forged at Fort Carson and tempered in battle, an epee held at the ready to thrust whenever ordered - against any adversary. A unit, which, in its relatively short period of combat, accumulated an enviable record of over 200 confirmed enemy killed, 8 prisoners, and tons of captured supplies and equipment. A fitting record for a fighting unit.


To those gallant comrades whop paid the supreme sacrifice in defense of freedom, this history is most gratefully dedicated; Semper Fidelis.
