UNITED STATES ARMY
1st Battalion, 28th INFANTRY TASK FORCE, 3rd INFANTRY DIVISION (UEx)
The 1-28 IN TF is a reinforced infantry battalion. In addition to a headquarters company, three rifle companies and a weapons company, it includes a combat engineer company, a field artillery battery with six towed 105mm howitzers and a forward support company. With these extra assets the 1-28 IN TF's configuration resembles that of an infantry brigade combat team, and its primary mission is to augment an IBCT when extra combat power is needed. The three additional company-sized units are organic to the battalion, are lettered consecutively, but use branch-oriented guidons. The FA element uses the title battery in place of company.
