understaffed and over burdened with work or an attorney who will give
your case his full attention and who can provide start-to-finish legal

A Brief History of
Camp Darby Italy
Camp Darby is a
US Army Garrison located between Pisa and Livorno in Italy. It gets its name from
Brigadier General William O. Darby, who served the 10
th Mountain Division as Assistant Division Commander during the 2
nd World War. He was unfortunately killed at Lake Garda, Italy by German
The U.S Army Rangers owe their origin to General William Darby. Before
his death, General Darby led a band of soldiers called
Darby's Rangers which became the precursor of the U.S Army Rangers.
Camp Darby was set up in 1952, as a result of negotiations between the
U.S government and the Italians. U.S troops were stationed in Austria
and bases were needed to support them.
The main square inside Camp Darby is dedicated to Pvt. Masato
'Curly' Nakae, who served with the 100
th Infantry Battalion and the 442
nd Regimental Combat Team near Pisa during the 2
nd World War. He was noted for his courage and heroism and he also received
the Medal of Honor.

The garrison is home to more than 2000 people, including about 350 armed
forces personal and 700 members of the National Guard. Interestingly,
Camp Darby is one of 6 military bases

The U.S Army recently announced that the Camp Darby's Army Garrison
would become a satellite installation to USAG Vicenza and would hereby
be known as the Darby Military Community.
In 2005, 5 Airmen assigned to the 731
st Munitions Squadron in Camp Darby were found guilty of using cocaine and
