World War One 
The 15th Field Artillery (FA) Regiment was organized in Syracuse, New York on 1 June 1917. Assignment to the 2nd Infantry Division (2nd ID) earned them the unofficial nickname of the 'Indianheads.' The 15th FA participated in 6 major campaigns during World War 1, firing 285,000 rounds, the greatest number of artillery rounds fired by any US Army Artillery Regiment during WW1. 
   
Second Infantry Division "Indianheads" World War Two
By 1940, the 15th FA Regiment was reorganized as the 15th FA Battalion and served in 5 major campaigns in the European Theater with the 2nd Infantry Division during World War 2. As part of the 9th Regimental Combat Team, the 15th FA Bn landed at Omaha Beach near St. Laurent- Sur-Mer, France, on D Day +1. The 15th fought for 73 straight days supporting the 2nd ID throughout Normandy. The 15th FA Bn was in combat for 336 days during WW2, firing 151,000 rounds.
    
Korean War
The Indianheads of the 'Fighting 15th' were called upon in 1950 to fight in Korea. The 15th FA Bn participated in 10 major campaigns during the Korean War while once again serving with the 2nd Infantry Division.
In one 24-hour period during the battle for Bloody Ridge, the 15th FA Bn fired 14,425 rounds. In support of the 2nd ID during the battle of Heartbreak Ridge, the 15th FA Bn fired another 69,956 rounds.

The 6/15th Division Headquarters was established at Lai Khe, and the battalion served in 9 major campaigns from May 1967 - November 1969, participating in most of the 1st Infantry Division's major battles under the call sign "Deadly".
The 7/15th served in 13 major campaigns from July 1967 - November 1971, at firebases throughout the Central Highlands of Vietnam. The battalion fired 360,000+ heavy artillery rounds during their 52 months in the Republic of Vietnam.
