Thanks for visiting the 152nd Field Artillery Association website. The Association is dedicated to preserving and sharing the historical legacy of the 152nd Field Artillery Regiment and to sustaining the social ties among its former members.
The main website introduces some of the history of the regiment, but we store much of our digital holdings at other sites such as Google Docs and Picasa. If you'd like to share some information, pictures, or other documentation that might be of interest to friends of the 152nd Field Artillery, please contact the webmaster.

*** Hale Bradt has written a book, actually a trilogy, about his father, 152nd FA WWII veteran Wilber Bradt. It is called Wilber's War: An American Family's Journey through World War II, and is described on the website www.wilberswar.com. Wilber was one of the great heroes of the Maine National Guard in WWII, and this is sure to be a great read.
This website costs money to maintain...the domain name and web hosting together cost about $125 a year, and the Association's bank account can't sustain it much longer. We've started a GoFundMe campaign to help pay the bill for another two years. If you find something you like through this site, please consider a small donation, even $1 helps! GoFundMe campaign page
