Always a tomahawk :) Korean War The North Korean invasion of South Korea in June 1950 sent the 2nd Infantry Division back overseas and to its third war. By August 1950 the Division had relieved the 24th Infantry Division on the Naktong River. This was to mark the beginning of a campaign by the 23rd Infantry that is worthy of the highest place in the annals of the United States Army. In fierce battles such as "Bloody Ridge", "Old Baldy", "Heartbreak Ridge" and "Arrowhead", the 23rd Infantry proved itself, time after time, to have the same ability and grim determination to do the job well that had built its historic tradition of glory and honor through the years.

For its heroic stand, the 23rd Infantry received the Distinguished Unit Citation. Th ...

Story by Sgt. Aaron P. Duncan 2nd CAB Public Affairs Photos by Sgt. Peter B. Adams 602nd ASB How do you create a leader? The United States Military Academy at West Point, N.Y., has been answering this question since Thaddeus Kosciuszko first began designing its foundations in 1778. Dozens of West Point and Reserve Officer Training Corps cadets got the opportunity to serve with the 2nd Infantry Division through the Cadet Troop Leader Training program from May to August. The CTLT program is designed to give cadets leadership experience in the active Army by allowing them to serve in lieutenant-level leader positions for approximately three-to-four weeks and then receive an officer evaluation report. Cadet Sgt. Chloe W. Drummond, who left her hometown of Birmingham, Ala., from the graduating class of 2014, worked with her 2nd Combat Aviation Brigade sponsor to learn the finer points of leading by first watching and helping him, and then leading herself. “Basically I’m learning what he does for the first ...
