Constituted on 6 July 1942 as Headquarters and Head-quarters Company, 10th Port of Embarkation, the 10th Transportation Battalion earned a Meritorious Unit Commendation for its service in the European Theater between 1943 and 1945 as the 10th Port HQ and HQ Company, Transportation Corps. Redesignated as Headquarters and Headquarters Detachment, 10th Transportation Battalion and allotted to the Regular Army in August 1954, the Battalion was activated the next month on September 2nd at Fort Eustis, Virginia.

In addition to the MUC it earned during World War II, the Battalion was also honored with MUCs for service in Vietnam between 1965 and 1968, as well as one for its support of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. Currently a subordinate unit of the 7th Transportation Brigade (Expeditionary), the 10th Transportation Battalion is nicknamed “Waterborne” for its seaborne and waterborne operations.
