The 159th Assault Support Helicopter Battalion "B" Company "Varsity" 1st Design Patch - Hue and Phu Bai - The 159th Assault Support Helicopter Battalion "B" Company "Varsity" (ASHB) was a heavy lift helicopter company. The 159th was formed on 1 July 1968. The spiritual ancestor to the 159th Combat Aviation Brigade (CAB) was organized as the medium and heavy lift Assault Support Helicopter Battalion of the 101st Airborne Division, and composed of three Boeing CH-47 Chinook Helicopter Companies, "A" Company - Pachyderms, "B" Company "Varsity" and "C" Company "Playtex" and One Sikorsky CH-54 Tarhe Company "Hurricanes". In the modern formation, only "Varsity" Company remained as Company B, 7th Battalion, 101st Aviation Regiment, 159th Combat Aviation Brigade. January 1969 through February 1972, the battalion provided lift support to the 101st Airborne. The 159th unit conducted "Airmobile" artillery raids, troop movements, flare drops, fire-base insertions and extractions, flight support, and aircraft recovery missions. The 159th Aviation Battalion received the Valorous Unit Award for services in the Republic of Vietnam, 1 January 1970 through May 1971. In February 1972 the 159th Aviation Battalion stood-down and returned to Fort Campbell, Kentucky as the only CH-47 Chinook battalion in the United States Army.
