Recently redesignated as Charlie Company, 1/143rd Infantry, the organization was formally the 173rd Infantry Detachment.  The detachment started out it's existence as the Scout Platoon, Troop D, 1/26th Cavalry. When Troop D was reorganized in October, 1986 the scout platoon was no longer required and subsequently reformed into a long range surveillance detachment. The split from Troop D officially made this a new unit which does not share history from Troop D. This units first assignment continued with the 1st Squadron, 26th Cavalry Regiment.
