Welcome to the 29th Division Association
The 29th Division Association is an organization dedicated to keeping the 29th Infantry Division and its spirit alive. A large family of veterans, current soldiers, and their families and descendants continue to share and embrace the glorious history of the beloved 29th Division, resolving to “perpetuate the friendships we cherish and keep alive the spirit that never knew defeat.”
The 29th Infantry Division is one of America’s most illustrious military units. It participated in the U.S. Army’s supreme operation of both World Wars, first in the great Meuse-Argonne offensive in 1918, and later in Operation Overlord, the celebrated D-Day invasion in 1944. Before that, the militia units comprising the 29th Division had performed valorous service in all of America’s wars, from the renowned “Maryland 400” at the Battle of Long Island in 1776 to the “Stonewall Brigade” in the Civil War.
The division is best known for landing on Omaha Beach on D-Day during World War II. It captured St. Lo during the Normandy Campaign and then fought through France, Holland and Germany until VE Day in 1945.
Aside from a 17-year hiatus between 1968 and 1985, the 29th Division has existed continuously since 1917 as a component of the National Guard. Its nick-name, the “Blue and Gray Division,” derives from the lineage of its constituent militia regiments, which fought
on opposite sides during the Civil War.
