THE 67th ARMORED FIELD ARTILLERY BATTALION (OZONE)

          The 67th Armored Field Artillery Battalion, which normally supported Combat Command "A" in action, was led throughout the five western campaigns by Lt. Colonel Edward S. Berry, a graduate of West Point and the Field Artillery School at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. Colonel Berry, one time commander of the 54th Armored Field Artillery Battalion, brought his mobile 105mm self propelled guns ashore on Omaha Beach, Normandy, with other units of the 3rd Armored Division, on June 24, 1944. He went into action almost immediately and the men of the 67th were rarely out of shooting range of the enemy from that time until final victory.
          The 67th Armored Field Artillery Battalion is a direct offspring of the 2nd Armored Division's old 14th Armored Field Artillery Regiment, which supplied a cadre of 51 officers and 299 enlisted men to the original 67th Field Artillery Regiment, activated at Camp Beauregard, Louisiana, on April 15, 1941. Later, the regiment was split to form the present 67th and 391st Armored Field Artillery Battalions.
