History

The 267th Quartermaster Company was constituted on 20 April 1943 as the 267th Quartermaster Bakery Company (Mobile) in the Regular Army. The unit was activated 8 May 1943 in Oran, Algeria. The unit was inactivated 16 June 1946 in Leghorn, Italy. The 267th Quartermaster Company was reorganized and redesignated as the 267th Quartermaster Company (Petroleum Operating). The unit was activated on 11 August 1967 at Fort Lee, Virginia. The Company was deployed to Operation Desert Shield 14 October 1990. The 267th Quartermaster Company provided fuel support by receiving the VII Corps through the Port of Al Jubail into the theater of operations. Subsequently, the unit constructed and operated a Tactical Petroleum Terminal providing fuel for the First Marine Expeditionary Force for the ground and air assault and expedient liberation of Kuwait. Additionally, the unit designed, constructed and operated the Inland Petroleum Distribution System which transported the fuel from a host refinery to the Tactical Petroleum Terminal. The Unit employed and used the downstream distribution system and transfer hose line assembly to redeploy the Marine Corps forces out of the Al Jubail Air Base. Prior to the unit redeploying, the 267th operated a Tactical Petroleum Terminal King Khalid Military City providing fuel support to the 11th and 3rd Armored Calvary Regiments and humanitarian relief support for Kuwait City. The company redeployed to Fort Lee on 4 July 1991. On 6 September 2002, 50 Soldiers of the 267th QM Company deployed to Kuwait and built the first TPT of OEF at Camp Virginia. On Feb. 6, 2003, the remaining soldiers of the company deployed to Kuwait and built a second TPT at Camp Udairi. The unit executed the first successful operation of the IPDS pipeline in a deployed theater on 1 March 2003 and operated 5 pump stations from Camp Virginia to the Iraqi border which assisted with build up of bulk fuel as Operation Iraqi Freedom commenced. The 267th was instrumental in the movement of approximately 80 million gallons of fuel through the IPDS pipeline and the issue of over 65 million gallons of fuel at the unit operated TPTs. The company redeployed to Fort Lee on 24 August 2003
