Infantry Regiment

Infantrymen are land based soldiers who are specifically trained for the role of fighting on foot to engage the enemy face to face and have historically borne the brunt of the casualties of combat in wars.

Lest We forget: The Brownsville Affair, August 13, 1906... The Brownsville Affair, or the Brownsville Raid, was a racial incident that arose out of tensions between Black soldiers and white citizens in Brownsville, Texas, in 1906. When a white bartender was killed and a police officer wounded by gunshot, townspeople accused the members of the 25th Infantry Regiment, a unit of Buffalo Soldiers stationed at nearby Fort Brown. Although commanders said the soldiers had been in the barracks all night, evidence was planted against them. Background The Brownsville Affair arose out of racial tensions between the white residents of Brownsville, Texas, and the newly arrived Black infantrymen of the 25th Infantry Regiment at nearby Fort Brown. The state had legal segregation at the time. Since arriving at Fort Brown on July 28, 1906, the Black soldiers had been subject to intense racial discrimination from the white citizens of Brownsville. As a result of these racial tensions, a fight broke out between a black sold ...

July 30th: Feast of Saint Peter Chrysologus. Happy birthday to my cousin Maria Aloi. In 1729, Baltimore, Maryland, was founded. In 1864, during the Civil War, Union forces tried to take Petersburg, Virginia, by exploding a gunpowder-laden mine shaft that had been dug out beneath Confederate defense lines; the attack failed. In 1918, poet Joyce Kilmer, a sergeant in the 165th U.S. Infantry Regiment, was killed during the Second Battle of the Marne in World War I. (Kilmer is perhaps best remembered for his poem "Trees.") In 1932, the Summer Olympic Games opened in Los Angeles. Walt Disney produced the first technicolor cartoon "Flowers and Trees" which also won the first Academy Award for a cartoon short. In 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a bill creating a women's auxiliary agency in the Navy known as "Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service" — WAVES for short. In 1945, the Portland class heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine during World War II; only 31 ...

Army Staff Sergeant Ryan Pitts received the Medal of Honor today for his heroics during one of the deadliest battles of the U.S. campaign in Afghanistan. As the nation’s highest award for valor was placed around his neck, the former infantryman said his mind was on his nine “brothers” who fought beside him and died in that battle. On July 13, 2008, Staff Sgt, Pitts and his fellow paratroopers from 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, fought off a force of more than 200 enemy fighters that had attacked Observation Post Topside and Vehicle Patrol Base Kahler.

The Chaplain–Medic massacre was a war crime that took place in the Korean War on July 16, 1950, on a mountain above the village of Tunam, South Korea. Operating at the Kum River during the Battle of Taejon, troops of the US Army's 19th Infantry Regiment were cut off from resupply by a roadblock established by North Korean troops of the NK 3rd Division. The roadblock proved difficult to break, and forced US troops to move through nearby mountains to evacuate their wounded. Thirty unarmed and critically wounded US troops were stranded at the top of a mountain along with a chaplain (Herman G. Felhoelter) and a medic. They were discovered by a North Korean patrol. Though the medic was able to escape, the North Koreans executed Felhoelter as he prayed over the wounded, then killed the rest of them. The massacre was one of several incidents that led US commanders to establish a commission in July to look into war crimes during the war. The same month, the North Korean commanders, concerned about the way thei ...
Camp Orton Located in Santa Rosa, Camp Orton was a temporary "summer camp" location for the California National Guard that operated during July of 1890. Only the 1st Infantry Regiment's Companies C and G from San Francisco have been identified as being at this camp. The camp was named for the then Adjutant General of California, Brigadier General Richard H. Orton.
He was born on 1 Apr 1967. He was enlisted in the Army on 10 December 1984. He was serving in Northern Light Infantry Regiment when skirmishes broke out in Kargil in 1999. Havildar Lalak Jan of the Northern Light Infantry Regiment fought from the forefront to thwart heavy Indian attacks. He volunteered himself to be deployed on the front positions located at the jagged peak in May 1999. Havildar Lalak Jan repulsed back many aggressive ventures by the enemy and imposed colossal losses on them. On 7 July 1999, Havildar Lalak Jan sustained serious injuries as enemies pounded the area with heavy mortar shells. But despite being injured, he retained his position and frustrated the Indian assault. Due to severe injuries he embraced martyrdom.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of chatting online to Ralf Wiepcke, He was telling me the story of his Great Grandfather Karl Wiepcke. Karl was born in 1882 in Sande, Today, Hamburg-Bergedorf. He was married and had five children, one child Ralf's grandpa. In world war 2 he lost two of his sons to the fighting. Karl was a Füsellier in the 3rd Guards Infantry Division, in the Lehr Infantry Regiment. On the 7th July 1916 defended the town of Contalmaison against the attacking British forces. Karl was listed as missing on the 7th July and has no known Grave. The Germans held out at Contalmaison until it was taken on the 10th July by The 8th/9th Green Howards. Thank you Ralf for sending me this photo and for telling me the story of your Great Grandfather Karl on the Somme.

Leah G. King (1827-1884) was another daughter of John King and Eliza Jane McCarson. (John was a son of Samuel Sr.'s first son, Joseph. He was a brother of Hiram.) Leah G. King (likely named for her father's sister) married Presley Benjamin Lawrence in 1850. Presley served in Company G, North Carolina 56th Infantry Regiment in the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia. Before 1870, like so many others in our King family, Presley B. Lawrence and Leah G. King migrated from the mountains of Western North Carolina to Collin Co. Texas. They had 9 children.

*Rodney mentioned. One of the most interesting battles involving black soldiers in Mississippi was the battle of Coleman’s Plantation in Jefferson County on July 4, 1864. This is one of the first times, and may be the first time, that white Mississippians fought black Mississippians. A Union force of 2,000 men, including the 48th and 52nd United States Colored Infantry, took part in a raid to Jefferson County to tie down all of the Confederate forces in the area and prevent them from being used against a Union raiding force that was advancing on Jackson at the same time. On July 4th , a Confederate force of 400 men led by Colonel Robert C. Wood Jr. attacked the Union raiders near Coleman’s Plantation, and the fighting raged all day long. Late in the afternoon the Confederate attack was finally smashed in a cornfield near the Rodney Road. The two black regiments played a vital part in repulsing this attack, and as the Rebels retreated, one of the black regiments advanced with the cry, “Fort Pillo ...
Today in New Jersey history -- another big day in Jersey! July 2, 1776: New Jersey’s Provincial Congress adopted the state’s first constitution. William Livingston was chosen as the first governor under the new statute, which was the only one of the original state constitutions granting the right of suffrage to women, providing they were property owners. July 2. 1863: At the battle of Gettysburg, the Newark boys of New Jersey’s Artillery Battery B, deployed near the Peach Orchard, fired 1,342 rounds, more than any other Union artillery battery in the Civil War fired in a single day—and Battery B’s day started at 2:00 p.m. As the Union Third Army Corps retreated, Battery B successfully disengaged from advancing Rebels and managed to withdraw all six of its guns to Cemetery Ridge. New Jersey's 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 11th Infantry regiments were also involved in heavy action that day, from Plum Run through the Wheatfield to the north of the Peach Orchard, with the 11th staging an epic fighting with ...
82nd Airborne Division Paratrooper dies in motorcycle accident Fort Bragg, N.C. — An 82nd Airborne Division Paratrooper died from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident at the intersection of Elliot Bridge Road and Will Lucas Road near Spring Lake on Saturday. Sgt. Tyler Wayne Humphreys, 23, of Houston, Texas, was an infantryman with 2nd Battalion, 325th Airborne Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Abn. Div. “Sgt. Tyler Humpreys was a dedicated Paratrooper and leader who will be sorely missed by everyone in the battalion,” said Lt. Col. Bradley L. Boyd, commander, 2nd Bn., 325th AIR. “Our thoughts and prayers are with his Family and friends during this difficult time.” Humphreys joined the Army in July 2009 and completed Infantry One Station Unit Training at Fort Benning, Georgia in November 2009.

Official Report of the 105th Pennsylvania Infantry Regiment in the Gettysburg Campaign
Soldier’s Camera and Photos from Battle of The Bulge Found in Foxhole 70 Years Later The Battle of the Bulge is known as one of the most deadly and influential battles of WWII. Taking place over the course of five weeks, this surprise attack by the Germans caught allied forces off-guard, causing massive casualties, especially among U.S. Troops. Among the 89,000 casualties was a soldier named Louis J. Archambeau, a Chicago native who left behind an interesting surprise in a foxhole he had been taking refuge in during the cold weather and rough artillery fire. Part of the Company C, 1st Battalion, 317th Infantry Regiment, Archambeau was an infantry rifleman. And even though he wasn’t part of the first infantry regiment on the scene, the 317th still managed to find their way into the thick of the battle. Backing up other allied forces, Archambeau’s regiment eventually took a break to attempt to get some rest and rations. It was during this brief downtime in the foxholes of the frozen ground that Archam ...
As we gather with our friends and family to celebrate Canada Day, Newfoundland and Labrador begins the day with memorial services in honour of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment. July 1st, 1916, the RNR was order to forward across a field at Beaumont-Hamel and assault a trench line held by the German’s 119th Infantry Regiment. Of the 780 men who advanced forward from St. John's Road Support Trench only 68 reported for roll call the following morning. 110 men survived the attack. Major-General Sir Beauvoir De Lisle said; “It was a magnificent display of trained and disciplined valour, and its assault only failed of success because dead men can advance no further.” Take a moment today to remember these brave men, for our freedoms have been gained and maintained on the backs of these men and other men and women like them.

75 years ago today… July 1, 1939 There are now two months left until war comes to Europe. In a note given from M. Georges Bonnet, French Minister for Foreign Affairs, to Count von Welczeck, German Ambassador to France, The French government warned Germany that France fully intended to honor her promises to Poland. The Reich demands that the world admit Danzig belongs to Germany. Britain sees no immediate German coup in Poland. The Cabinet will determine Polish aid to resist a “peaceful” Danzig seizure. The Reich will hold Czech teachers responsible for anti-German acts of students. The Reichsbank president Walther Funk warns the Reich against gloom; the war of nerves is telling in German businessmen. Germans scoff at the British warning, saying London will not protect Danzig.

Today's interesting story about my grandfather, Webber Davis, whose passing this week represents the passing of a generation: Webber joined the US Army at 17 at Fort Thomas, Ky. When he joined, the army was still very much a horse, mule, and foot army. He was part of the 10th Infantry Regiment (the same unit I served in when I went through my basic training 58 years later). The unit would march from Fort Thomas to Fort Knox every year for field training, moving all gear with horses and mules. He rejoined the Army at the outbreak of WWII and was assigned to the Army Air Corp. I find it interesting that he went from an army of horses and mules his first enlistment to one of airplanes just a few years later. It's amazing how WWII changed everything! His unit (during his second enlistment) was deployed to the Pacific but before shipping out from California, he got sick and had to miss his unit's shipping out. The unit he was supposed to ship with ended up being captured in the Phillipines and was par ...

How's your day going? This morning, even us back in London would have heard the opening artillery barrages over on the Somme in France. Some people in Forest Gate wrote to the Stratford Express saying they actually thought it was a German invasion, the noise of the explosions was that loud... Fortunately, the West Ham Battalion weren't involved in the July 1st attacks along the Somme Front - the worst day in the history of the British Army with just over 19,000 of the Commonwealth's finest men killed by lunchtime... Dont even ask how many men were simply 'wounded' ... Today, The Hammers were in the Vimy Sector, preparing for their first trench raid, due to take place this evening against the German 162nd Infantry Regiment. The sixty 'Other Rank' raiders and four Officers enjoyed a last meal together and it was quite a feast by the standards of the Front! Sandwiches, cakes, cigars and liqueurs. It had been organised by Tom Brind, a Thames Lighterman for over forty years, a widower who lived in Canning Town ...

Note: The US Marine Corps trains each and every one of its recruits to be a rifleman and automatic weapons expert. No matter if they are a cooks helper, typist, runner or so on, they all can fight like a grunt. On Nov. 15, 2003, an 85-year-old retired Marine Corps Colonel died of congestive heart failure at his home in La Quinta, Calif., southeast of Palm Springs. He was a combat veteran of World War II. Reason enough to honor him. But this Marine was a little different. This Marine was Mitchell Paige. It's hard today to envision or, for the dwindling few, to remember – what the world looked like on 26 Oct 1942. The U.S. Navy was not the most powerful fighting force in the Pacific. Not by a long shot. So the Navy basically dumped a few thousand Marines on the beach. As Platoon Sgt. Mitchell Paige and his 33 riflemen set about carefully emplacing their four water-cooled ..30-caliber Browning machine guns, manning their section of the thin khaki line which was expected to defend Henderson Field against .. ...

My ancestor, George Urie Howell, and the men with whom he fought alongside at Shiloh, will finally be memorialized. Mr. Kimble Johnson with the Mississippi Veterans Monument Commission traveled from Columbus, MS, to the Civil War Relic Show in Brandon I'm at to share these photos and emailed the following- "Thought I'd provide you with some pictures (attached) showing you what the Mississippi Monument at Shiloh will look like. This email goes out to all who have been involved in,or are interested in this project. At the time the pictures were taken,the sculptor had yet to add a few details to the maquette,such as the lock plates,hammers,and sights to the Enfield rifles. I apologize for the poor quality of the pictures and I hope to have some better ones available in a month or so,but I think you can tell that this will be a very nice monument and a fitting tribute to the Mississippi troops who fought at Shiloh. As you probably know,Mississippi is the only state that had a significant number of troops enga ...

Another Brick in the Wall. The History of Compulsory Schooling & its Purpose as a System of Indoctrination Excerpt; While Prussia was undergoing its "education" reforms, much of the U.S. was under the Lancaster system, a system derived from the Hindu caste,[17] which was yet another form of hierarchy in which the smaller "upper" class rules over the much larger "lower" class. Although this produced favorable results for the globalists, it didn't take too long for the more efficient Prussian system to spark interest in the States and, more specifically, America's powerful industrialists. Interest in adopting Prussian methods was triggered by a series of favorable reports regarding the German kingdom's school system. Most notable of these perhaps, is that of the Secretary of Education in Massachusetts, Horace Mann in 1844. As a result, Massachusetts would become the first school to make compulsory attendance of school into law (which it eventually enforced through the threat of imprisonment of truant child ...
This week in the 105th Illinois Infantry Regiment during the Civil War, I offer the story of Dewitt C. Green, who lived and farmed in Genoa, Illinois, and enlisted at 24 years old. He was made a corporal and, later, a sergeant, in Company A of the 105th Illinois. Green recalled that day at Pine Mountain, Georgia, on June 16, 1864. He said, “We had been for forty days constantly under fire and had grown a little careless of rebel bullets. Suddenly, while I was at work there came a burning, benumbing sensation and my whole left side seemed paralyzed. I knew that I was shot, but I did not know where. Gen. Dustin, Col. Dutton, and Maj. Brown all stood near and saw me. They said it whirled me around and I fell, but I have no recollection of that. They say, too, that the bullet went clear through me and they saw it strike the ground behind me.” At the time, his wound was considered fatal. He explained, “They took me back to the Division Hospital a half mile away. It was a big tent and full of wounded for ...

When Major Richard Winters was asked by his grandchild if he was a hero in WWII, he responded, "No, but I fought in the company of heroes." Major Winters fought with "Easy Company"of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division that jumped in behind German lines the night before D-Day. In addition they fought in "Operation Market Garden," "Battle of the Bulge," and others. Major Winters was a Second Lieutenant on D-Day who was awarded the "Medal of Honor" for his bravery on "D-Day," and in less than a year of combat in Europe was promoted to Major! And his response was that he was not a hero! Thank to the men and women who fought and died for the liberation of Europe, and the safety of our country!

This is one of those Paul Harvey "the rest of the story" kind of things. ~~ This headline did not make much news, “Van T. Barfoot passed away at the age of 92 on 2 March 2012." But he was the guy you may remember who wouldn't take the flag pole down on his Virginia property a while back? Stories about a crotchety old man in Virginia who defied his local Homeowners Association, and refused to take down the flag pole on his property along with the large American flag he flew on it. But read on and you will discover why that old man was so defiant about his flag, and you will see it was not in his nature to back down. And now for "The rest of the story." Barfoot was born on June 15, 1919, in Edinburg, Mississippi. His grandmother was Choctaw, but Barfoot himself was not an official member of the Choctaw Nation; although he was eligible, his parents had never enrolled him. After enlisting in the Army from Carthage, Mississippi, in 1940 and completing his training, Barfoot served with the 1st Infantry Div .. ...

This week's Medal of Honor profile: Master Sergeant Stanley T. Adams - U.S. Army - Company A, 19th Infantry Regiment - Korea - 4 February 1951 Master Sergeant Adams, Company A, distinguished himself by conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty in action against an enemy. At approximately 0100 hours, M/Sgt. Adams' platoon, holding an outpost some 200 yards ahead of his company, came under a determined attack by an estimated 250 enemy troops. Intense small-arms, machine gun, and mortar fire from 3 sides pressed the platoon back against the main line of resistance. Observing approximately 150 hostile troops silhouetted against the skyline advancing against his platoon, M/Sgt. Adams leaped to his feet, urged his men to fix bayonets, and he, with 13 members of his platoon, charged this hostile force with indomitable courage. Within 50 yards of the enemy M/Sgt. Adams was knocked to the ground when pierced in the leg by an enemy bullet. He jumped to his feet and, ignoring his wound, ...

Col. (Ret) Ramon Padilla, a Korean War veteran, visited Korea with his friend Col. (Ret) Benjamin Buckley, who had served at I Corps ROK/US Group in Uijongbu, Jun 4-10. Among many of the place they visited was Hill 296, the site of one of the bloodiest battles in the Korean War in which Col. Padilla played an instrumental role in defending it against the Communist forces. They also attended the Eighth Army Birthday Ball and visited the Seoul National Cemetery, War Memorial Center, Joint Security Area, and Camp Red Cloud. Col. Padilla was born on September 1, 1931 in Los Angeles, California. He enlisted in the US Army in 1949 and joined Company L, 3rd Battalion, 21st Infantry Regiment, 24th Infantry Division as a rifleman in the Pusan Perimeter in August 1950. In the Battle of Hill 296, Col. Padilla and the Soldiers of Company L were driven off several times off the hill, but eventually recaptured and held the hill.

BY HILDA MUÑOZ, hmunozThe Hartford Courant 7:32 p.m. EDT, June 10, 2014 President Barack Obama signed a bill Tuesday honoring the 65th Infantry Regiment, a unit of soldiers largely from Puerto Rico known as Los Borinqueneers with the Congressional Gold Medal. Retired Staff Sergeants Celestino Cordova and Joe Pickard, two veterans from Connecticut, were among dozens of Borinqueneers from all over the country who traveled to Washington, D.C. for the bill signing. "The guys are very happy and it's history in the making," said Retired Sgt. First Class Carmelo Figueroa, president of the Hispanic-American Veterans of Connecticut "It was a hugely joyous and powerfully moving moment for all of us," said Sen. Richard Blumenthal. Purchase your Officially Licensed UConn National Championship Gear HERE! Blumenthal and Sen.

"Bugout Boogie" This tune was played on Armed Forces Radio throughout Asia, among other places. Of course it was inevitable that in the back-and-forth fighting in Korea in 1950 that some wag would take this tune and write lyrics that would, in time, come to be the unofficial anthem of the war -- The Bugout Boogie. The Army was so sensitive about the subject that it was officially forbidden and you could lose your stripes for singing it in front of the wrong officer. The song was alleged to have been originally sung by the black soldiers of the 24th Infantry Regiment, and some versions of the song include the line: "When them Chinese mortars begins to thud, the Old Deuce-Four begin to bug." Perhaps, but the fact of the matter was that the song was sung in just about every Army unit in Korea, often with a sister unit's name inserted. For example, this is the version sung by some members of the 2nd Infantry Division which makes fun of the 1st Cavalry Division. Hear the patter of running feet It's the old Fir ...

Today is the day we remember the heroes of the "Greatest Generation." They were the ones who heeded the call to halt the Nazi plan to rule the world. The blood shed in Normandy on that day of sorrow and courage beyond the pale, served to liberate France from the Nazi regime. I am proud that my family has in it two members who gave their lives in WWII for this cause. War has a terrible price attached to it. The lives of many in the Armed Forces were given up so that we could be free. On this day my family honors Staff Sergeant John Visalli, Company C, 16 Infantry. and Private Nateli Visalli, Company 1, 179th Infantry Regiment, 45th Infantry Division. They were two brothers in real life, and the brothers of all those who also gave their lives in that terrible war. We are the children of their family left behind to remember and honor them. Our Mothers and Fathers Brothers. Our Uncles. We are the family to make sure that they are never forgotten. May their souls rest in peace.
Meanwhile the rest of the 2nd and 5th Ranger Battalions spearheaded the 2–16th Infantry Regiment, 1st Infantry Division, on the beach at Omaha. This is where the famous Ranger slogan comes from, when Major Max F. Schneider, commanding the 5th Ranger Battalion, met with General Norman Cota. When Schneider was asked his unit by Cota, someone yelled out "5th Rangers!", to which Cota replied, “Well then Goddammit, Rangers, lead the way!”
Today on the 70th anniversary of the Allied D-Day landings in WWII, we remember our brave military forces that sacrificed it all. Louisiana's 156th Infantry Regiment played a role in Operation Overlord, the World War II Allied invasion of Normandy. The regiment was ordered into federal service in November of 1940. It trained at Camp Blanding, Florida and Camp Bowie Texas. In 1942, after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the U.S. entry into the war, the 156th was sent to England. 2-156th, with companies largely from Acadiana, split off and landed in Oran, Algeria where they were re-organized into the 202nd Infantry Battalion and worked as military police due to their ability to speak French. The remainder of the regiment was assigned to the U.S. Assault Training Center in Woolacombe, England, where they trained combat units for amphibious landings, securing beachheads, and other tactics necessary for the coming Normandy invasion. When the invasion began, the 156th was assigned the mission of security ...

June 6, 1944.Utah Beach, Normandy France... The landing was planned in four waves. The first consisted of 20 Higgins boats or LCVPs, each carrying a 30-man assault team from the 8th Infantry Regiment. The 10 craft on the right were to land on Tare Green Beach, opposite the strong-point at les Dunes de Varreville. The 10 craft on the left were intended for Uncle Red Beach, 1,000 yards (900 m) farther south. The entire operation was timed against the touchdown of this first assault wave, which was scheduled to take place at 06:30 am. Eight LCTs (Landing crafts, tanks), each carrying four amphibious DD Tanks, were scheduled to land at the same time or as soon thereafter as possible. The second wave consisted of another 32 Higgins boats with additional troops of the two assault battalions, some combat engineers, and also eight naval demolition teams that were to clear the beach of underwater obstacles. The third wave, timed for H plus 15 minutes, contained eight more Higgins Boats carrying DD tanks. It was fo ...
Seventy years ago today, H-Hour has passed and D-Day has begun. Units would have been storming the beach in Normandy at about this time, after Airborne troops already dropped in. I've been watching Band of Brothers and The Pacific all week in memory of this momentous occasion. With the most sincere gratitude, there have been several moments of reflection and even a tear or two as I have considered just how courageous and sacrificial those were who placed their lives on the line for not only freedom within the United States, but truly the entire world. In the simplest of terms... I do not believe I would be alive today had it not been for those brave soldiers who sacrificed all for the lives and liberties of countless others (known and unknown). In remembrance of such, I would like to extend an acknowledgment to those of the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions, as well as the 1st and 2nd battalion of the 8th Infantry Regiment; with special recognition to Easy Company of the 506th PIR (aka the "Screaming Eagl ...

Pause – Reflect – Remember those who have served and died… Memorial Day (originally called Decoration Day) was borne out of the Civil War and a desire to honor our dead. It was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11. “The 30th of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land,” he proclaimed. The date was chosen because it wasn’t the anniversary of any particular battle. Just four photos to remind us why… 1. Christian Golczynski receives the flag for his father, Marine Staff Sgt. Marc Golczynski, who was killed during his second tour in Iraq. 2. A solider from the 3rd US Infantry Regiment, 'The Old Guard,' places flags at grave sites during the 'Flags-In' ceremony at Arling . ...
Total number of U.S. Veterans who where killed in war since 1775: 1,321,612 Over a MILLION men or women killed in combat, and I can't even name 5 of them...So, to pretend that I'm "thankful" is really hypocritical of me, and insulting to those who have given their lives. Today, I'm NOT going to say I'm "thankful"...I'm going to say I'm SORRY...Sorry for not paying attention, sorry for not recognizing, and placing your sacrifice a little higher on my priority list.(which is truly honoring someone). Today, I'm going to learn about 5 fallen Veterans...Yes, I'm going to take a whole 10 minutes out of my day...What a sacrifice, huh? PFC Rueben (Skip) Gideon Kirk III, from West Virginia.

All gave some, some gave all. Gator Tough, 2nd Battalion 12th Infantry Regiment
MY Memorial Day STORY! A story told many times to me by my father and told many times by others at our family reunions; this year it is worth repeating for Memorial Day. My father Master Sergeant Edward Bunn in1951 was in Korea serving in the US Army. He was assigned to Company I, 7th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division. Around April 25, 1951 his company was located near Tongmang-ni, Korea engaged a numerically superior force. I remember my father talking about enemy bullets going by and sounding like bees. One of my fathers soldiers PFC Charles Gilliland was doing a great job with his 50 caliber pouring steady fire at the North Koreans & Chinese as they attacked their position. My father indicated that the assault got stronger and Gilliland's assistant was killed and Gilliland continued to experience the brunt of the attack, nevertheless he slowed the onslaught. It was reported by my dad, that during the attack two enemy soldiers escaped his raking fire and infiltrated the sector. He left the cover ...
The march from Tianjin to Beijing of about 120 km included about 20,000 allied troops. On 4 August, there were approximately 70,000 Imperial troops and anywhere from 50,000 to 100,000 Boxers along the way. The allies only encountered minor resistance, fighting battles at Beicang and Yangcun. At Yangcun, the 14th Infantry Regiment of the U.S. and British troops led the assault. The weather was a major obstacle. Conditions were extremely humid with temperatures sometimes reaching 42 °C (108 °F). These high temperatures and insects plagued the Allies. Soldiers dehydrated, and horses died. Chinese villagers killed Allied troops who searched for wells.[67] The heat killed Allied soldiers, who foamed at the mouth. The tactics along the way were gruesome on either side. Allied soldiers beheaded already dead Chinese corpses, bayoneted or beheaded live Chinese, and raped Chinese girls and women.[68] Cossacks were reported to have killed Chinese civilians almost automatically and Japanese kicked a Chinese soldier ...

I wrote this in 2004 for a "JoJo On The GoGo" column. The owner/ publisher/ editor said he agreed but could not print it because it was "incendiary" . I was somewhat upset but also felt complimented.He was a retired "vet". I WAS JUST SITTING HERE REMEMBERING JACK By JoJo Medrano “If you are able, save for them a place inside of you and save one backwards glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go. Be not ashamed to say you loved them, though you may or may not have always. Take what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own. And in that time when men decide to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind.” -Major Michael Davis O’Donnell 1 January 1970 Dak To, Viet Nam Listed as K.I.A.

In honor of Memorial Day we wanted to share the story of First Lieutenant Alexander Farum Lippitt, son of Gov. Charles Lippitt and grandson of Gov. Henry Lippitt. Alexander left Harvard University in 1917 to volunteer for the American Expeditionary Forces during WW I. Lt. Lippitt was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross "for extraordinary heroism in action while serving with 166th Infantry Regiment, 42d Division, A.E.F., in the Champagne sector, north of Chalons, France, 15 July 1918. During a powerful enemy attack, Lieutenant Lippitt led his platoon through heavy artillery and machine-gun fire in a counterattack against the enemy, which had gained a foothold in our line. The enemy was repulsed and the line reestablished. He assisted in the reorganization and defense of the position against two enemy assaults. The gallantry of this officer was a great aid to his command at a time of unusual danger." A few days after this attack, Alexander received a head wound while advancing another attack and died .. ...

Command Sergeant Major Bernie Kelly, 1st Infantry Regiment, California State Militia. These men do not attain positions like this by being "yes" men and shucking responsibility... They lead by example. What a better way to inspire lower enlisted by showing that you are just as willing to do as you ask them to do. With this man I am reminded of "Captain Miller" from "Saving Private Ryan". They have something in common.

A point of history and fact, this is not to take away anything from the 339 Infantry. I have been to the museum in Frankenmouth and to the monument at White Chapel and do honor them. There were two units sent to Russia and put under British command, at the same time. I am a Vietnam veteran of the other unit also called the Polar Bears The other unit was the 31 Infantry Regiment, sent from the Philippines to Vladivostok at the eastern of the Trans Siberian Railroad. Both units bear the name Polar Bears, and have a polar bear crest. The 4th Battalion of the 31st Infantry is still active and is stationed at Fort Drum,NY. They will be celebrating their 98th anniversary this August at a reunion in Watertown/Fort Drum, Ny. There also have a Polar Bear monument (31 Infantry) at the Infantry museum, Fort Benning, GA. The 31st has a long history and proud history of seeing action in every conflict after Russia, the Boxer Rebellion, Bataan WW1, KoreaI Vietnam, peace keeping the war in Iraq to the present war on ...
Throwback Thursday -- one of the combat veterans from my unit in Vietnam (Louis Pepi) recognized me in a photo among some files during his trip to National Archives in DC last month. Looks like I'm receiving some sort of medal from my battalion commander down in his command bunker at Firebase Charlie-Two, situated south of the DMZ. First time I ever saw this photo. Must have been pretty close to the end of my combat tour, which during my last 2 months, I was the Executive Officer (XO) for Headquarters Company, 1st Battalion 61st Infantry Regiment, 5th Infantry Division (October - November 1970) ... so in this pic, I'm 20 y/o & still not old enough to vote or buy a beer. Thanks again Louis.
Today I received a new package of my dear friend Brian from Virginia, United States. This time a book came in it, a memoir called "Old Man from the Repple Depple: The story of an infantry replacement soldier in Europe in World War II" written by Thomas E. Oblinger. While quickly looking thru the book I noticed there were several photographs of GI's in it. I was flabbergasted when I saw a photograph with a name "Donald W. Schlager". The reason for this is that I actually own his WWII Ike Jacket, Good Conduct Medal, some paperwork and his Wool Overcoat! To my amazement in the WWII photograph of Donald you can actually see him wear the EXACT Ike Jacket, with only one ribbon missing, the World War II Victory Medal. Corporal Donald W. Schlager served with the 26th Infantry Division, 104th Infantry Regiment, 1st Battalion, Headquarters Company, Anti-Tank platoon, 2nd Squad. On December 28, 1945 Donald was discharge at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas. After returning to Mitchell, Nebraska, he farmed for 15 years, during ...
Today, 69 years ago, on May 7, 1945 the following soldiers of the US 26th Infantry Division were Killed in Action, while fighting for our freedom in occupied Europe. These men gave their lives which was and still is the greatest sacrifice. They gave the most precious thing they had, leaving their fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters back at their homes in the United States. Boys and men, so far away from home. From their families and friends, fighting in countries they may have never heard of. But they did it anyway, so that every man and woman may live in freedom. Even today we still appreciate what they did for us. May these men and woman Rest in Peace who have died during the liberation of Europe. Thank you for your service and those who are serving now. These soldiers were Killed in Action on May 7, 1945; Private First Class William J. Wallace, 101st Infantry Regiment. Recipient of the Purple Heart. "They stand in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die. That freedom might live and grow, ...
