Even though only the 506th and 187th were stationed at Camp
Evans, SERTS trained incoming troops for all three brigades
of the 101st Division
before they were assigned to their specific
units. The insignias on the building are of the infantry regiments in
the 101st Division (L-R): 506th (the 3rd BN was in the 1st Brigade,
and the 1st and 2nd BNs were in the 3rd Brigade)
, 327th (1st and 2nd
BNs in the 1st Brigade),
187th (3rd BN in the 3rd Brigade), and 502nd
(2nd BN in the 1st Brigade; 1st BN in the 2nd Brigade). Not shown in the
photo is the insignia of the 501st (1st and 2nd BNs in the 2rd Brigade).
