The Wisconsin Army National Guard’s 32D ‘Red Arrow’ Infantry Brigade Combat Team Headquarters hosted an event at its Camp Williams armory on 15 Oct. 2011 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 32D ‘Red Arrow’ Infantry Division’s mobilization for the Berlin Crisis. There were historical displays at the armory, current equipment displays and an official ceremony on the adjacent parade field, and the exhibits of the Wisconsin National Guard Museum were available for viewing as well. Photos from the event are available on the Wisconsin National Guard's Flickr site. There is also some reminiscence about the mobilization from one of the veterans on WisGuard Live, the Official Blog of the Wisconsin National Guard.
