Welcome to the 278th Field Artillery Battalion website.

The 278th was formed on May 6, 1943 and saw active duty in WWII in the European theater until May 8, 1945. On this site, you can learn about the history of the 278th, view pictures, find a complete list of every soldier who served in the 278th, and more. Veterans of the 278th will also find information about reunions here.

If you are a veteran of the 278th, or know someone who is, we'd like to hear from you! We would love to have your photos, stories, memories, to add to this site. If you have any information you'd like to share with us, or would like to see something added to this site, please email admin@278fabn.net

Enjoy your visit!

This site is dedicated to the memory of Albert T. Padula (1924-2016) 278th C Battery, and all those who served in WWII.
