28th Infantry Division

The 28th Infantry Division was activated on 17 February 1941 at Camp Livingston Louisiana. For World War II they transferred overseas to the European Theatre of Operations (ETO) on 8 October 1943. Following additional training in Southampton, England, the 28th Infantry Division landed in Normandy, France, on 22 July 1944.

Immediately they entered the fighting in the hedgerows near St. Lo. Following the Normandy Breakout, the 28th paraded through Paris on 29 August 1944 and began driving toward Germany via Luxembourg and by the 2nd of November entered the Huertgen Forest.

The 28th Division got caught in the Battle of the Bulge and endured many casualties. By early January 1945, they had moved to defensive positions along the Meuse River. By February, they were back on the offensive.
