III Corps turns 99


III Corps celebrated its 99th birthday during a ceremony held in the West Atrium of the III Corps and Fort Hood Headquarters Tuesday.

III Corps and Fort Hood Commanding General Lt. Gen. Paul Funk II hosted the event, which culminated with a ceremonial cake cutting by him, Command Sgt. Maj. Alonzo Smith, III Corps and Fort Hood command sergeant major, and the oldest and youngest Soldiers in the corps.

"Today, we'll kick off the campaign for our 100th anniversary," Funk said. "As we enter our 100th year, we honor the achievements of those before us and stand ready to answer our nation's call. But we should never forget the sacrifices on the monuments that you see throughout our corps footprint and understand the sacrifice, the sacrifice that you all understand very well."

III Corps was activated on May 16, 1918, and has contributed to every major conflict, as well as conducted multiple humanitarian missions since its inception.
