The 35th Infantry Division

 

The 35th Infantry Division of the US Army, nicknamed “Santa Fe”, was created on July 18, 1917, and fought on the European front during World War 1 (in France during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive); it was dissolved on May 30, 1919.

 

It was later reactivated in December of 1940, and sailed to Britain in May of 1944 before landing on Omaha Beach in France, in July, fighting on French soil until December. The 35th Infantry then took part in the Battle of the Bulge with General Patton's Third Army, starting December 25, 1944, as a part of the operation aiming at relieving Bastogne as it was surrounded by German forces. It fought intense battles in Tintange, Lutrebois, and Villers-La-Bonne-Eau, recapturing the latter two villages on January 10, 1945 after 13 days of engagement.

 

The 35th Infantry Division went on to Germany in the spring, moving north to Hanover where it remained until V-Day. It returned to the USA on September 10, 1945.

 

It was reactivated on October 5, 1946, dissolved again on April 13, 1969, and was reborn on August 25, 1984. The 35th Infantry is still active today. It includes units from the National Guards of Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois and Georgia.
