History

After the surrender of Geronimo in 1886, the Apache threat was essentially extinguished, but Fort Huachuca was kept open because of its strategic border position. It was used as a forward logistics and supply base during the Pancho Villa Expedition Punitive Expedition of 1916-1917. The United States Army decided a new installation was needed to counter the Chiricahua threat and to help secure the border with Mexico. In 1967, Fort Huachuca became the headquarters of the US Army Strategic Communications Command, which became the US Army Communications Command in 1973; and US Army Information Systems Command (USAAISC) in 1984. The 92nd Infantry Division (United States) and 93rd Infantry Division (United States) Infantry Divisions (Colored) were trained at Huachuca at that time.
