The 841st Transportation Bn. conducted vessel offloading operations in support of the V Corps first rotation to Europe at Joint Base Charleston, S.C., Nov. 24.

The V Corps, also known as the “Victory” Corps and the Fifth Corps, was activated less than 12 months ago at Fort Knox, Ky. and is now the U.S. Army’s fourth corps headquarters.

The successful redeployment was a historical milestone because it demonstrated that the unit is fully operationally capable again, according to Gen. Michael X. Garrett, commanding general, U.S. Army Forces Command.

Now that the unit is operational, Soldiers assigned to the V Corps will regularly begin to rotate from Kentucky to a forward headquarters in Poznan, Poland.

V Corps was activated in 1918 during World War I and was de-activated in 2013. The corps took part in the D-Day invasion and liberation of Europe during World War II.

The Army's other operational corps are I Corps (America’s Corps) at Joint Base Lewis- McChord, Wash.; III Corps (Phantom Corps) at Fort Hood, Texas; and XVIII Airborne Corps (Sky Dragons) at Fort Bragg, N.C.
