The 90th ASB mission is to provide logistics and sustainment force health protection to an Expeditionary Combat Aviation Brigade. The Aviation Support Battalion (ASB) serves as the primary source of logistics for the aviation brigade. The ASB plays a dual role in providing direct support to the aviation brigade. First, the ASB supports current operations. It monitors the implementation of the support plan. The ASB actively monitors all support operations with the aviation brigade S4, identifies problems, and implements solutions to ensure support requirements are met. Second, the ASB plans to support future operations. It anticipates requirements and incorporates planning guidance. In addition, the ASB commander is a base cluster commander in the division rear and operates under the division command for this mission. The ASB supports the aviation brigade’s mission by implementing the Combined Arms Support Command commander’s guidance. Specifically, it supports the aviation brigade by providing or coordinating all classes of supply and maintenance. It replenishes basic loads for all its supported units.
The 90th ASB contains a Headquarters and Support Company, a Distribution Company, an Aviation Support Company, and a Brigade Signal Company. The Headquarters and Support Company provides command and control, staff planning and supervision, and food service support for all organic and units assigned or attached to the ASB. The Distribution Company provides logistics service support to an Aviation Brigade. The Aviation Support Company provides Aviation Field Maintenance (AVIM) and limited backup Aviation Field Maintenance (AVUM) support to the Combat Aviation Brigade. The Signal Company provides 24-hour operational signal systems networking to the supported Combat Aviation Brigade, ECAB, or Division which includes deploying, installing, operating, and maintaining these systems.
The 90th Aviation Support Battalion has a prestigious history dating over 100 years to its inception on August 5, 1917. Originally constituted in the National Army as the 315th Supply Train, an element of the 90th Division, it mobilized on September 5, 1917 at Camp Travis, Texas. After a brief period of training it deployed to France as part of the Allied Expeditionary Forces. The unit performed valiantly, earning Meritorious Unit Commendation streamers for its participation in the Lorraine, St. Mihiel and the Meuse-Argonne campaigns of World War I.
On June 6, 1919 after returning from World War I, the 315th Supply Train of the Army’s 90th Division demobilized at Camp Bowie, Texas. On June 21, 1921 the unit reconstituted as the 90th Division Train, Quartermaster Company in the organized Reserves and allotted to the Eighth Corps Area. From 1925 to 1942 the unit experienced many reorganizations and redesignations until ordered into active military service on March 25, 1942, at Camp Barkeley, Texas, as the 90th Quartermaster Company. The unit deployed to Europe during World War II participating in the Normandy, Northern France, the Rhineland, Ardennes-Alsace and Central European Campaigns. As a result, the unit earned the Meritorious Unit Commendation embroidered with both streamers for France and Germany, the Invasion Arrowhead for Normandy, and the French Croix de Guerre with Palm Device for participation around the Moselle and Sarre River campaigns. After returning from Europe the unit deactivated in December 1945 at Camp Shanks, New York. In May 1947 the Army reallocated the unit to the Organized Reserves, and reactivated it in June 1947 at San Antonio, Texas under Fourth Army. In 1963, the Army redesignated the unit as HHC, 90th Supply and Transportation Battalion. On September 16, 2010 the Army redesignated the unit as the 90th Aviation Support Battalion (ASB), 244th Aviation Brigade.
On June 11, 2014 the 90th ASB once again answered its nation’s call to duty. The unit deployed in Support of Operation Enduring Freedom-Kuwait/Operation Inherent Resolve to provide world class aviation support services to U.S. and Coalition Forces serving in Joint Operations Area Georgia. This was the unit’s first activation mission since WWII; the unit performed meritoriously and received the prestigious AAAA Unit of the year award. The Soldiers of the 90th ASB continue the proud tradition of sacrifice and honorable service to its nation.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District, headquartered in Downtown Fort Worth was established in 1950 after disastrous floods in the area. The District covers a geographical area of about 410,000 square miles, employs more than 1,000 people and is responsible for 25 lakes, major urban floodways and 17 Army and Air Force installations in Texas, New Mexico and Louisiana. The District operates and maintains reservoirs and lakes for outdoor recreation opportunities for millions of visitors annually, while also furnishing approximately 35 percent of Texas’ water supply.
The Fort Worth District manages one of the largest military construction programs in the Corps and supports customers with design and construction projects at 17 Army and Air Force installations in Texas, New Mexico and Louisiana. Over the years, the District has supervised the construction of facilities to include barracks, family housing, training and aircraft facilities, schools, child care centers, clinics, and hospitals.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Regulatory Program is implemented under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act and Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 for two-thirds of the State of Texas, including three very large, fast-growing metropolitan areas — Dallas-Fort Worth, San Antonio, and Austin — and some of the fastest growing cities in the nation.
The Fort Worth District provides a variety of services to other federal agencies, to include the Department of Homeland Security, Drug Enforcement Agency, Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the Veterans Administration. Current projects include the design and construction of two Border Patrol Stations and two Customs and Border Protection Checkpoints. Additional projects include real estate acquisition, procurement and administrative services for other agencies.
