HEADQUARTERS 2d INFAN TRY DIVISION
Public Information Oflice
Fort Benning, Georgia
BRIEF HISTORY OF THE 2d INFANTRY DIVISION
The history of the Second Infantry Divi-
sion is one of glory and sacrifice. In peace or
in war, no soldier could serve with a more
honored unit. The slogan, "Second to Nonev
reflects the intense pride and spirit of the
fighting 2d Division.
Its impressive combat record began soon
after it was organized in 1917 at Bour-
mont, France. It was born of war. In World
War I, the 2d Infantry Division won more
decorations than any other American Divi-
sion. Participating in every major engage-
ment involving American troops, it cap-
tured one-fourth of the prisoners taken by
the American Expeditionary Forces and
suffered one-tenth of the American casual-
In its first major campaign, the Division
was rushed to Chateau-Thierry to aid in
halting and counter-attacking a full-scale
German drive on Paris. The historic battle
of Belleau Woods followed. The month of
July in 1918 found the Division, operating
under the French Army, in active fighting
against the German positions in Soissons,
France. Moving across this sector, the Divi-
sion troops marched and fought in a spec-
tacular sweep that sent the enemy reeling
back along the line. Then, after bitter
fighting in the St. Mihiel salient, it helped
to reduce the bastion of Blanc Mont, a mili-
tary objective of formidable proportions.
The capture of this strong-point by the 2d
Division opened the way toward the bat-
tles of the Argonne Forest.
For its heroic actions at Soissons and
Blanc Mont, the Division was awarded the
French Fourragere in the colors of the
Croix de Guerre with two palms.
Returning to American command, the
Division took part in the Meuse-Argonne
offensive. The offensive was the beginning
of the German route that ended with the
signing of the Armistice.
After the signing of the Armistice, the
2d Division moved into Germany with the
Army of Occupation. In the summer of
1919, the Division returned from occupa-
tional duty to its station at Fort Sam Hous-
ton, Texas, where it pioneered many
changes in tactics, organization and equip-
ment of the modern infantry division.
In 1939, reorganization of the 2d Divi-
sion took place. The infantry units were
formed into three separate regiments-the
9th, 23d and 38th-completing the "tri-
angular" organizations. The 2d became the
first such division.
When the United States entered the Sec-
ond World War, the 2d began preparing
for a major role. Before sailing for Ireland
in October 1943, the Division had under-
gone airborne training at its home station,
Fort Sam Houston, winter training at
Camp McCoy, Wisconsin, and Army-wide
maneuvers in Louisiana.
In April 1944, it moved to Wales and
prepared for the assault on continental Eu-
rope as part of the First US Army.
On 7 June 1944-D-Day plus one-the
Indianhead Division returned to France for
the second time, landing on "Omaha Beach"
at St. Laurent sur-Mar While enemy shells
were still pouring into the thinly held
The 2d played a large part in Winning
the famous "Battle of the HedgeroWs"-
the first of its five campaigns in World War
II. On the heels of this encounter came the
bitter fight for Hill 192, a commanding
strong-point on the road to St. Lo. The
Division remained on the defensive until
11 July and then jumped off to attack.
With the aid of tremendous artillery and
aerial bombardments, tanks, and engineers,
this vital objective Was finally taken.
The Division continued to slam through
Normandy during the fighting around St.
Lo, and then Went on to capture St. Jean
des Baisants, Vire, and Tinchebray. Shortly
after the battle for Tinchebray, the 2d em-
barked on a 3 00 mile journey into Brittany
to take part in the Battle of Brest, one of
the Nazi naval strongholds on the Atlantic
coast. Although Hitler had ordered Brest
held for three months, it was captured in
October found the 2d in Southern Bel-
gium facing the Siegfried Line. After three
days of attack, the Siegfried Line was pen-
etrated. The Division readied itself to re-
sume the attack on the East when the great
German counter-offensive struck the allied
front. The Nazi Sixth Panzer Army poured
through the Ardennes, but the Division
held its ground in the snow-covered Else-
born area until the Battle of the Bulge was
For its part in the Battle of the Bulge,
the 2d Division was cited twice by the
Belgian government and was awarded the
After that historic battle, the Division
began its sweep into Germany and by the
end of the war, the men of the Indianhead
Division had reached the ancient Czecho-
slovakian city of Pilsen. The 2d advanced
750 miles in combat during 320 days of
battle, had suffered 15,000 battle casual-
ties and captured 70,000 prisoners in its
fight for the liberation of Europe.
The Indianhead soldiers embarked from
LeHavre, France, on 13 July 1945, and
were stationed at Camp Swift, Texas. Less
than a year later, the Zd, minus the 38th
Infantry Regiment, moved to California
and then on to Fort Lewis, Washington,
which remained its home until the out-
break of hostilities in Korea.
From the autumn of 1946 until it was
alerted for combat in Korea, the 2d took
part in a series of large-scale maneuvers
which prepared it for the future.
On 8 July 1950, the "Second to None"
.H 'J ' --1. L
Division was alerted for Korea and 1 1 days
later the first elements of the Division land-
ed. The Indianhead Division was the first
American unit to leave the United States
for the fighting in Korea.
Units of the Division were thrown into
the defenses of the Naktong River Line and
were rejoined by the remainder of the Di-
vision south of Taegu. Moving swiftly to
counter enemy threats, the 2d halted the
Red attempt to overrun the Naktong Line
in a battle which raged from 1 to 15 Sep-
tember 1950. The North Korean armies
were forced to break and retreat, and the
first wave of "Operation Breakthrough"
With "Operation Breakthrough" under-
way, the Indianhead troops, as part of the
8th Army, swept northward in the drive
toward the Yalu River. With the entry of
the Chinese Communists into the conflict,
the Division came under heavy attack. The
overwhelming forces that the Chinese
threw into the attack and the swiftness of
their thrust cut the 2d off from the rest
of the Eighth Army troops temporarily.
At Wonju, the right flank of the United
Nations forces was endangered. With the
Netherlands and French Battalions at-
tached, the 2d took a stand and protected
the rear and right flank of the Eighth
Army. They pushed north in a two-pronged
attack aimed at Twin Tunnels and Chip-
nong-Ni and toward Hoengsong, which re-
sulted in the first complete halt of Chinese
forces since they entered the war.
On 16 May 1951, Chinese hordes
launched an attack with full force against
the Indianhead sector with the announced
purpose of destroying the 2d. After six days
of heavy fighting, the Chinese were re-
pulsed and began to withdraw. The deter-
mined defense then turned to a lashing of-
fensive which caught the enemy off bal-
ance. His stunned and battered armies
broke in disorderly retreat. It was the
worse defeat ever suffered by the Chinese
For this action the 2d Infantry Division
was awarded the Distinguished Unit Cita-
tion-the highest decoration the United
States bestows on a unit.
With the opening of armistice negotia-
tions, the "Battle of the Hillsi' began. From
18 August to 5 September, the Division
battled to seize "Bloody Ridge." The period
of 13 September to 13 October saw a hard
fought battle which culminated in the cap-
ture of "Heartbreak Ridge." The final cap-
ture of the ridge was made possible by
"Operation Touchdown," launched just as
the Chinese were relieving the North Ko-
During the next 18 months, the 2d Divi-
sion fought for and held other critical
pieces of terrain. At this time members of
the Division and the attached Thailand
Battalion fought off repeated attacks
against "Old Baldy," "T-Bone" and "Pork
Chop Hills." Aggressive patrolling and de-
fense of these occupied the Division for the
remainder of the year.
Moving back to the line in early Feb-
ruary, the Division defended positions in
the Hook area.
The 2d was still defending in the vicinity
of Chorwon when the Armistice was signed.
With the implementation of the agreement,
the Division moved to positions along the
southern boundary of the demilitarized
zone and engaged in a rigorous training
On 20 August 1954-exactly four years
after the last elements had arrived in Korea
-the 2d Division was alerted for redeploy-
ment to the States.
On October 10, an impressive ceremony
marked the homecoming to Fort Lewis of
the famed Indianhead warriors. More than
1 8,000 oflicers and enlisted men of the 44th
Infantry Division stationed in the North-
west military site were transferred to the
"Second to None" Division as the colors of
the 44th were officially retired from active

Rugged advanced combat training con-
tinued for the Indianhead soldiers at Fort
Lewis until 1 August 1956, when the Divi-
sion moved to Alaska under "Operation
Gyroscopev. On 8 November 1957, control
of the Division Was transferred to the De-
partment of the Army.
