10th Armored Division

The 10th Armored Division was activated on 15 July 1942, at Fort Benning, Georgia. They went straight to the European continent landing at Cherbourg on 23 September 1944.

The Tiger division as the 10th was known was led by Maj. Gen. William H. H. Morris, Jr. and in early November, supporting XX Corps, officially entered combat in the Mars-la-Tour area. Next the 10th participated in the capture of Metz.

When the Battle of the Bulge erupted, Combat Command A (CCA) moved North into the attack and Combat Command B (CCB) headed directly for Bastogne. CCB of the 10th were trapped along with men of the 101st Airborne in Bastogne, holding off numerous German Divisions until the salient was pushed back.

Following the Bulge, the division re-grouped at Metz with XX Corps. They attacked again on 20 February 1945 and running through the Saar-Moselle Triangle they reached the Saar River, crossing and capturing the city of Trier along with a bridge across the Moselle River.

Leaving the command of 3rd Army, they were assigned to the US 7th Army and they drove into the Bavaria. They went through Kaiserlautern, crossed the Rhine, Heilbronn and by 23 April they crossed the Danube River. They entered Austria four days later. On V-E day they had reached Mittenwald, Bavaria. They would leave Europe for home on 3 October 1945, sailing from Marseilles, France.

The 10th would capture 43,208 enemy soldiers while suffering 710 killed and 4300 wounded. Total casualties reached 8381 representing 78.5 of the divisions total strength. 19 Distinguished Service Crosses and 217 Silver Stars were awarded to the men of the 10th Armored.
