No, the "Super Sixth" -- one of the cornerstone units of

Patton's Third Army -- was deactivated on September 18, 1945.

It was reactivated as a training unit in 1950, but never left

Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri, and was permanently deactivated in

March, 1956.

The alumni association for the unit held its final reunion in
