    The 63rd Readiness Division celebrates its Birthday with an Open House, at the Sgt. James T. Witkowski Armed Forces Reserve Center, Mountain View, Calif., June 9, 2023. The 63rd RD was activated under Maj. Gen. Louis Hibbs during WWII as the 63rd Infantry Division on June 15, 1943 due to the Army’s urgent need for combat power.
