Sixth United States Army History


It was first activated in January 1943, commanded by Lieutenant General Walter Krueger.[1] Under the code name Alamo Force,[2] it assumed control of the majority of US Army units involved in Operation Cartwheel, the campaign to isolate and neutralize the Japanese base at Rabaul in New Britain. Following the completion of Cartwheel, Sixth Army joined Australian Army and other US forces on the north coast of New Guinea.[3] Similar in conception to the island hopping operations of the central Pacific, the object of the attacks was to land, establish a garrison and airfield which could support the next strike, and then move on.

Occupation duty then followed for a short while until Sixth Army returned to the United States,[9] headquartered at the Presidio of San Francisco. Sixth Army then took responsibility for training of Army forces from part of the continental United States, until it was inactivated as part of force reductions in June 1995.[10]


Sixth United States Army Reactivation
