Command & Staff, 3rdBn, 12thMar, 1st Marine Brigade, FMFPAC, MCAS, KanHI, 1956

"The link between the 4th Marines and its major supporting unit, the 3rd Battalion, 12th Marines, stretches back .... to the days of the 3rd Marine Brigade in Tientsin, China. The 12th Marines unit was first activated there on October 4, 1927, at the beginning of the period which was to establish the 4th Marines as "Old China Hands." However, this union was short-lived as the 12th Marines was deactivated in early 1928.

In February of 1955 the battalion came to Hawaii as a part of the 4th Marines (Reinf), the major ground unit of the "new look," the 1st Provisional Marine Air-Ground Task Force. When this was redesignated the 1st Marine Brigade, FMF, the battalion found itself, as in 1927, in an overseas Brigade serving beside the 4th Marines."
