During the Second World War, the Battalion participated in five campaigns and was inactivated on March 11, 1946 in Germany. On August 12, 1965, it was reorganized and redesignated as Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 184th Ordnance Battalion and subsequently deployed to Vietnam. There it participated in five campaigns: Counteroffensive, Counteroffensive Phase II, Counteroffensive Phase III, Tet Counteroffensive, Counteroffensive Phase IV, Counteroffensive Phase V, Counteroffensive Phase VI, Tet 69/Counteroffensive, Summer-Fall 1969, Winter-Spring 1970, Sanctuary Counteroffensive, Counteroffensive Phase VII, Consolidation I, Consolidation II, and Cease-Fire.
