The M. D. Stone Uniform Collection
Part #4, Army State-Side Duty, Cold War
35th Air Defense Artillery Brigade:
A year later, the war in Europe would be over. After WWII, the 35th Brigade returned to the United States and then was inactivated at Camp Kilmer, New Jersey. Over a 25 year period of the Cold War, and the Vietnam Era, the 35th Anti-Aircraft Brigade was reactivated at Fort Bliss, Texas and moved to Fort Meade, Maryland were it provided a anti-aircraft defense for the nation's capital. On his left sleeve, the 35th Air Defense Artillery, as with all the identification on this uniform, it to is in the subdued form.The focus of Air Defense during this period was to counter the threat of long range bombers targeting the United States. He had his previous front-line assignment with the XVIII Airborne Corps (Airborne) as is evident by the patch on the right sleeve. It would take another twelve years before the brigade was activated again, this time stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington on 1 June 1985 in support of the US Army I CORPS. That would be about where this uniform would have started to be seen.
