Even though the armor branch traces its lineage back to the original cavalry units, its first beginnings date from the First World War. The Tank Service of the National Army was formed on 5 March 1918. and disbanded after the war in 1920. The Armored Force was formed on 10 July 1940 and redesignated the Armored Command on 2 July 1943, the Armored Center on 20 February 1944, and discontinued on 30 October 1945. It became a permanent Armor Branch of the Army on 28 June 1950 absorbing armored, cavalry, and tank destroyer units. The United States Army Armor School is now located at Fort Benning.


ARMOR is the professional journal of the U.S. Army’s Armor Branch, published by the Chief of Armor at Fort Benning, GA., training center for the Army’s tank and cavalry forces.[citation needed] It is also one of the oldest publications in the U.S., founded in 1888 by cavalry officers on the American frontier as a forum for discussing doctrine, tactics, and equipment among soldiers geographically separated by the great distances of the American West.[citation needed]
