Hawaii  1954-1966

  

During the years following Korea, the 14th Infantry Regiment found a new home at Schofield Barracks in Hawaii.  The 1st Battalion took up residence almost immediately after Korea, followed in the mid-60s by the 2nd Battalion.  For one year, 1969, 3rd Battalion was activated at Schofield Barracks, and then inactivated at the start of 1970.

The 1st Battalion was the first to ship out for Vietnam in January of 1966, headed for the Central Highlands, it's ranks filled by a draft of men from the 2nd Battalion.  The 2nd Battalion followed in April, 1966, destined for Cu Chi, the headquarters of the 25th Infantry Division in Vietnam.

Following Vietnam, 1st Battalion returned to Schofield, and the 2nd Battalion was de-activated.  The two have not served together since...
