Historic Events

The 28th Division's Trail of History--November 2nd to 7th--1944…  a time to Remember and Honor those who served. 

THE BATTLE OF HÜRTGEN  FOREST:  WORLD WAR II  -  September 1944 - February 1945
During our 2000 and 2001 Reunions at Fort Indiantown Gap, we had the privilege of reminiscing with some of our Division Veterans and veterans of other units that were engaged in the Hurtgen Forest battles during the historic days of November 1944 when the 109th, 110th and the 112th Regiments of the 28th Division fought hard but suffered one of the worst defeats of the U.S. Army in World War II.  That opportunity to reminisce makes a strong point for the entire Division to join together in our annual reunions.  To view our collection of the 28th Division action in the Hurtgen Forest click here

THE BATTLE OF THE BULGE -- 16 December 1944 - 28 January 1945
The 28th Division played a role in this decisive battle during World War II.  To get a better understanding of the this time in history, we have captured several pages of recordings for your appreciation of the ordeals that our soldiers encountered fighting for us in putting down the forces that have sought to change our lives and the freedoms that we now enjoy.  The peoples in Luxembourg and Belgium have shown their appreciation to the American and British troops who have liberated them by building memorials in their cities and towns. On the sveral pages on our web site we have listed those dedicated to the 28th Division.  To view the Battle of the Bulge pages--click here.
