  • Second Infantry Division WW1 Indian Head Embroidered patches

    The 2nd Infantry Division was born on 26 October 1917, at Bourmont, France. It is the only division organized on foreign soil. At the time of its activation, the Indianhead Division was composed of one brigade of U.S. Infantry, one brigade of U.S. Marines, an artillery brigade, and various supporting units. During “The Great War” the division was commanded twice by Marine Corps generals; Brigadier General C.A. Doyen and Major General John A. Lejeune. This was the only time in U.S. military history when Marine Corps officers commanded an Army Division. The Division spent the winter of 1917 – 1918 training with French Army veterans. Though judged unprepared by French tacticians, the American Expeditionary Force (AEF) was committed to combat in the spring of 1918 in a desperate attempt to halt a German advance toward Paris. The 2nd Infantry Division drew its first blood in the nightmare landscape of Belleau-Wood and contributed to shattering the four-year-old stalemate on the battlefield during the Chateau-Thierry campaign that followed. The Division won hard-fought victories at Soissons and Mont Blanc, for which it was awarded the French Fourragere in the colors of the Croix DeGueme. Finally, the Indianhead Division participated in the Meuse-Argonne offensive, which spelled the end of any German hope for victory. On 11 November 1918, the Armistice was declared, and the 2nd Infantry Division marched into Germany where it performed occupational duties until April of 1919.
