97th Letterhead


Welcome





We have been searching for you

The 97th Sig Bn Assn was founded May 1989 and is incorporated in the state of Arizona as a non-profit organization.  The objectives of the association are to create a fraternal order of persons that served with the 97th Signal Battalion in order to perpetuate the bonds of comradeship, loyalty and devotion to country that was demonstrated in war and peace since the unit's activation 10 April 1942 at Fort Sam Houston, TX.

Membership is open to all former 97th and attached unit's members.  Dues are ten dollars ($10.00) per year and is payable on 1 January of the dues years.  We also offer lifetime membership at one-hundred twenty-five dollars ($125.00) which can be paid in five equal consecutive payments of $25.00.  Widows, children and other close family of former 97th members are afforded Associate status and dues are not required.

The Association holds annual national reunions and also what is referred to as "MINI" reunions.



  More info on both the national and mini reunions will appear in future issues of 'THE COMMUNICATOR', the association newsletter, which is now published three times a year.  You can also get more information by clicking here ––> REUNIONS

We are asking any member that reads this page to contact the Secretary to give their names to be inserted in our name bank.   There is at least one person in this world that is searching for you.  An old 97th buddy says!  It is always a pleasure to see or hear from an old 97th hand, because the 97th Sig Bn was the very best Signal Battalion the U.S. Army ever fielded, bar none!!  So search those files, records and memories and send that list of former 97th "Tried and Truers" to the Secretary.  You will never regret the gesture.
