Pre-World War II
2nd Battalion, 152nd Field Artillery
(c) 152nd Field Artillery Association, 2009
We don't know a lot about the 2nd Battalion before WWII other than what's published in the 1939
yearbook. Because only the 1st Battalion remained after the War, there hasn't been any institutional
memory of the 2nd Battalion like there is for the 1st, which deactivated in 2007.
The Association's Historical Committee has a long list of projects, but one of them is to spend
some time in the Maine State Archives and in the Maine National Guard records to learn more about
the 2nd Battalion. In the meantime, the excerpts from the 1939 yearbook are shared here and in the
links on the left.
