The 10th Support Battalion did not receive that designation until October 1991, beginning its service life as the 145th Quartermaster Battalion, Mobile when it was activated 29 March 1944. It underwent several redesignations, including 10th Mountain Quartermaster Battalion (1944-1945), 10th Quartermaster Company (1948 – 1975), and 10th Supply and Transport Battalion (1975 – 1991). During World War II, the unit served with the 10th Light Division (Mountain) in Italy, garnering credit for participation in the Po Valley and Apennines campaigns.

Nearly six decades passed before the Battalion was deployed forward to a combat zone, and the Battalion that was “Proud To Support” began earning decorations for its service in both Afghanistan and Iraq. Following the launch of Operation Enduring Freedom, the Battalion’s Headquarters and Headquarters Company (or Detachments from it) were awarded the Meritorious Unit Commendation at least five times, and individual Companies in the Battalion acquired at least ten more. The Regiment as a whole was given credit for at least two5 campaigns in Afghanistan (Consolidation I, Consolidation II) and three in Iraq (Iraqi Governance, National Resolution, and Iraqi Surge.
