1-87 Infantry Battalion
“To The Top”
The purpose of this site is to provide those of you interested in our unit with a basic understanding of our unit's history as well as in processing information for those of you who will be assigned to us. For those of you who are a family member, relative or loved one of a member of Task Force Summit, I encourage you to utilize the hyperlink to our virtual family readiness group website where you will find additional in-depth information that not only provides you information about our unit, but also resources designed to assist you during times of need.
Over 60 years ago the Soldiers of this unit participated in operations in the Aleutian Islands as well as Italy. Today the Soldiers of this unit perpetuate the proud lineage of America's first Mountain Infantry Battalion. They have fought in both Afghanistan and Iraq, and stand poised to continue the fight against terrorism when the call comes. Thank you for your time and interest in the Summit Battalion.
