The 29th Division Association works to perpetuate the friendships we cherish; keep alive the spirit that never knew defeat; to glorify our dead; and to further keep before our Country the record of the 29th Division in all wars. Donations which support these efforts, our stated purposes and activities, are gratefully accepted.
Update On “Save The Patch”
We are very pleased to report that the Congressional Naming Commission has recommended to Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, that the iconic blue and gray, yin yang patch of the 29th Division be retained and unchanged in the US Army.
However, it recommended that the heraldry, however, supporting it must change. So, it’s not over yet. We cannot allow the actual historical foundation of the 29th Division to be modified in any way!
We need to continue reaching out to Congress requesting they oppose any Army recommendation to change the background of the 29th Division. Hopefully, we can have the 29th Division issue extracted from any legislation resulting from the Naming Commission’s report.
A Special “29 Let’s GO!” support fund (a 501 (c)(3)) has been created that will be used to educate the public, inform decision makers, and engage Congress about the 29th Division’s legacy. These tax-deductible contributions are managed by The Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge in a capital growth grant fund to ensure that there are always funds ready to support this and future issues.
