Our History

Since 2005, 38 Service Battalion has contributed 15 Combat Service Support soldiers to the mission in Afghanistan. In addition, the Battalion has provided soldiers to the Regular Force for operational missions in Germany, Cyprus, Egypt, Cambodia, Bosnia, Croatia, Haiti and Somalia. Members have also participated in domestic operations such as Operation PODIUM (2010 Olympic Games), Operation PEREGRINE (2003 B.C. forest fires) and Operation ASSISTANCE (1997 Manitoba floods).

On April 10, 2010, the former 16, 17 and 18 Service Battalions were reorganized into a single Service Battalion, 38 Service Battalion, as part of the Army Reserve’s Combat Service Support Optimization Plan. While each individual units’ traditions and historical milestones have been maintained, this amalgamation ultimately improved the unit’s operations by promoting easier selection of priorities, and better management of brigade resources. It also ensured that all brigade units are properly covered by the service support team.
