Toggle %s Happy 99th 3rd ID
|Posted By: PFC K.Mora @ November 21, 2016 - 02:54 PM|
Happy Birthday 3rd ID
As many of you know “Nous Resterons La” or “We’re staying there” is the 3rd ID motto and for 99 years they have remained a strong and steadfast unit.
The 3rd Division was formed the 21st of November, 1917 to counter the final wave of German offensives as the war drew to a close. The division, 28,000 strong, was sent to the European Front in 1918 where the French had been pushed with miles of Paris. One of its final engagements was when the 7th Machine Gun Battalion rushed to the Marne River as the French retreated and held the river from desperate German advances. The battalion was reinforced and took the brunt of the Germans final bid for Paris. This historic battle earned them the title “Rock of the Marne” and recognition as a highly efficient unit.
The division, now renamed the 3rd Infantry Division, was deployed in 1941 after Pearl Harbor. It was the only unit to see combat with Germany on all fronts. The unit was deployed to North Africa in Operation Torch and saw vicious combat with the Afrika Korps. The unit then took part in the Anzio Landings, commanded by former 3rd ID commander Maj. Gen. Truscott, where they were crucial in breaking heavily fortified German lines. By June 4 they finally reached Rome. They were then designated to insert into Southern France by sea and joined other units in the push towards Germany. By the end of the war the division had pushed all the way into Austria.
The division returned home until the war in Korea broke out in 1950 where they were ordered to Korea as soon as possible. They arrived to the front in September where they took part in the UN invasion of the North. The invasion failed when the Chinese entered the war and the 3rd then organized the largest beachhead evacuation in history. They then regrouped and pushed the Chinese back to the 38th Parallel. The 3rd then took the brunt of the Chinese’s final bids for Seoul. For their efforts they were given the nickname “Rock of Seoul”. After pushing the Chinese back past the 38th, they settled into defensive positions along the border preventing and seizure of strategic points. After the war the 3rd was stationed in Germany as part of the West Europe defense plan.
Sections of the division then served in Operation Desert Shield as US forces liberated Kuwait. The 3rd then took part in Operation Iraqi Freedom and led the liberation of Baghdad and tightened security over the city. The unit returned home for a short leave before redeploying to Iraq. The division eased pressure allowing 42nd Division to retake most of Northern Iraq and helped transfer power to the modern democratic government. The division was then redeployed to Iraq for COIN operations against radical groups struggling for power and helped secure the city of Ramadi. They then began a series of deployments in Operation New Dawn before returning home under the Obama administration's promise to lower the US presence in Iraq.
The 3rd Infantry Division has a long and illustrious history as a unit known for holding steady against the current and never breaking no matter the odds. That through all the battles and wars they knew that they had brothers and sister by their side. They changed the way brotherhood is seen in the military and around the US. That is what we and everyone should strive for as unit and as a person. Happy 99th 3rd ID!
