SOURCE DOCUMENT ADVISORY

Digital images were created from printed source
documents that, in many cases, were photocopies of
original materials held elsewhere. The quality of
these copies was often poor. Digital images reflect
the poor quality of the source documents.

Where possible images have been manipulated to
make them as readable as possible. In many cases
such manipulation was not possible. Where
available, the originals photocopied for publication
have been digitized and have been added,
separately, to this collection.

Searchable text generated from the digital images,
subsequently, is also poor. The researcher is
advised not to rely solely upon text-search in this
collection.



RIGHTS & RESTRICTIONS

Items collected here were originally published by the
Florida National Guard, many as part of its SPECIAL
ARCHIVES PUBLICATION series. Contact the Florida
National Guard for additional information.

The Florida National Guard reserves all rights to
content originating with the Guard.



DIGITIZATION

Titles from the SPECIAL ARCHIVES PUBLICATION series
were digitized by the University of Florida in
recognition of those serving in Florida's National
Guard, many of whom have given their lives in
defense of the State and the Nation.

Dear Sir,

Enclosed you will find a copy of a brief history of the 31st
Infantry "Dixie" Division, which includes units and quite a
number of personnel from your state.

This history was originally prepared for War Department Bureau
of Public Relations and for several service publications.
Lt. Col. Mark W. Lance, 31st Division Chief of Staff, asked
that a copy of it be sent you.

A longer and more detailed history for publication and sale
to all members and former members of the division is being
prepared, and will probably be published within a month or two
after the division arrives in the States in November.

If you can assist us in publicising the.homecoming of the 31st
Division in any way, it would be appreciated very much. There
will be several hundred soldiers from your state returning with
the division.

TE 3 18ST ZFAT RT "DIXR" DIVZBION
the Shoildt. Patch
There was no better naue for a division whose regiAents eaUe
from Alabama, ississippi, F]orit, and zouisiana. ,Tro the day
in July of 1917 when the 3Slt Division first was organlsed at Cagp
Wheeler, Georgia, it was called The "Dixie" Division,
Wherever the 4diiseonas training program took it, civilians
and other outfits were calling it "Dixl", and by the time it had
arrived in Frasoe in 1918 its baggage and equipment bore the in-
signia which is its shoulder patch today: Two red D's Baok-To-
Baok, on a white diso,

The N&tory
After arrival in Franoa, the 31st Division immediately became
a replacement unit, sending companies and individual officers ad
enlisted. mn into the front lines of the ASF.
Although SIst Division history began with World War X, the d1-
visionto three regiments have longer histories, dating as far bask
as 1798 when today's 158th Infantry Regiment, seventh oldest in the
U.S. Army, was organized as the Adams county (Mlaistsippi) Militia.
In 1806 the regiment made the Sabine Oampaign, and in 1809 it was
mobilized for the Burr Insurrection. It fought in the War of 18k18
and the Creek Indian War; in 1846 it took part in the Mexican War,
and then, as the first M)ssiesippi Volunteers, it participated in
the War Between the States. When the first World War Sroke out it
was stationed on the 1exican border, was soon reorganized and saw

overseas service with the.39th Division.
On the regimental rest is the units mottot "Stand Fast."
When other troops were beginning to fall back in the battle of
Buena Vista in the eziocan War, Colonel Jeff Davis, later Oon*
federate President, ordere'--Stand fast, Mississippians."
From Alabaua comes the 167th Infantry Regiment. Its origin
in 1886 was followed by participation as the 4th lambaua Infantry
in the QCvil War. Stationed on the Mtexian Border in 1916 and '17,
the regiment was called to Canp MoOlellan, Ala., here it Joined
the 42nd Ralanbow" Division and first met the New Tork 7th "Blieblood*
Regiment with which w it was to fight so gallantly all through the
first World War. At Camp MoQlellan the Alabanians found themselves
quartered just across the company street from the sew Yorkers, and
the old North-South battle flags went up. Some J9ohnte-Rob used the
the name "Davyankee* without sailing, and a thoughtless Tank took
the name "rebelI in vain-in a flash the two regiments were awar-
ing together, bare fiesta swinging. For a solid hour the free-for-
all. swirled baek and forth in the company street and out onto the
parade grouPza. New York's Father Duffy, now made famous by the
moving picture, "Fightin' 69th", finally stopped the fighting.
After that olash, the two regiments raised the white flags of true.
They went to Iranoe together, and as a regiment in the brigade
oomaanded by General Douglas MaoArthur the 167th distinguished it-
self in the heavy fighting which is recorded by its six World War
I battle streaaerst Ohaipagne-Marne, Aisne-Marne, Ueuse-Argonne,
St. Mihiel, Lorraine, and Champagne.
The 184th Infantry Regiment was organized froa companies which
date back to 1887, and on its shield is a sheathed sword represent-

ing participation in the Spanish War, a oaotus denoting service
on the Mexican border, and a Fleur-de-lis for service in the First
World Ear; a cross of red is from the flag of the state of Florida.
Like the infantrymen, the artillerymen, too, are from the Deep
South; the 114th Field Artillery Battalion is from Mississippi, the
118th is from Florida, the 117th is from Alabama, and the 149th is
from Florida.
It was inevitable, after the 167th's melee with the New York
guardsman in 1917, in 0afp eoOlellan, Ala., that the 31st Division's
replacements would be "daayankees", and so they were* Szxlusive
of those states below the ,ason-Dixon line, New York and Pennsyl-
vanisa now have the greatest numbers of men in ,the division, but thee
are also sen to be found from each of the Forty-Sight in the Dixie
Division.
Stateside Training
In November of 1940 mobilisatioon orders were given the 31st
Division guardsmen. Moving from all parts of the South to Camp
Blending, lia., the outfit was completely assembled in December of
that year. The 31st did ameh of the work on what is now a beautiful
Camp Blanding, near Jacksonville. It was still here when ordered to
Louisiana for maneuvers in ;uly and August, 1941, and returned to
Landing when it left the field. Again in November the Guards took
to the field, this time to the Carolinas for a bitter oold fowur-weeks
maneuver. They returned once again to Blding, to remain until
February, 1942.
The next. ove was a change of station for the 31st--it moved
from Blanding to Camp Bowie, Texas, just outside Brownwood, the
(aore)











geographical center of the biggest state. Four months later the
division moved out of Bowie toward Louisiana, once again for a mid-
truler Maneuver.
At the conclusion of these two-month's field exercises, the 31st
headed for Caap Shelby, Miss., outside Hattiesburg. Proa September
'42 through June '43 the 31st received replacements, trained, lived
and played at Camp Shelby. Then once again it was ordered to par-
ticipate in a Louisiana maneuver.
After July and August, 1943, spent in the bayous and on the..dusty
Louisiana baokroads, the 31st heard rumors that it was slated to
move into Casp Maxey, Texas, but at the last minute it entrained for
Camp Pickett Va., where it moved into barracks for the first time
since induction. From Poikett the division moved. y regimental ca-
bat teams into West Virginia for mountain maneuvers near lkmine, and
later to Qaap Bradford, Va*, for amphibious exercises and a problem
in Chesapeake Bay which ended up Maryland, late in 1945.
By Christmas that year the Slut knew it was going overseas. It
began packing in January 1944 and soon mved toward its port of
embarkation.
World War 1I
In SO months overseas, infantrymen of the 31st fought raps at
Altape, Wakde-Sarmi, Morot#a, Mapia, and Mindanao, leaving thousands
of the enemy dead in their drive from southern New Guinea to the
Philippines.
The 51st praetioally lived in the Jungle after its first elements
debarked at Goodenough Island off New Guinea following a long ocean
voyage afrom Iapton Roads, Va. lew men in the ivii saw anything

remotely reseoiblin: westernn civilization once they passed through

the Panana Canal in the Winter of 1944.

The 31st was one of the first divisions to be mobilized for World

War II. Its National Guard units vore called to Federal Service in

November of 1940 at Camp Blandinwi, Fla., and the division participated

in a seemingly endless successioI of ,an:v:uvers in Louisiana, Missis-

sippi, Texas, and the Carolinas before it entrained for the POE at

Camp Patrick Henry, Va.

Aitape and 'akde- 'armi

After a brief training period at Ora Bay, British New Guinea, the

Division's fighting regiments Joved into action. One ROT, the 124th,

went to Aitape, and the other two, the l.15th and 167th, went to WVakde-

nrni. The 124th caught a heavy assiln;i~ent for its first experience in

corabat. In the now-historic fighting alopg the Druinimor River, the

124th killed more than 3,000 of the enemy to eSlp break the back of the

by-passed Japanese 18th Army. Figting was much lighter at Wakde-Sar~ri,

but the 155th and 167th accounted for almost 1,000 Japs in two months

on the Maffin Bay perimeter vhich :.uirded the 5th Air Force's V akde

Island airstrip.

Morotai and ';~nia

In September, all units staged for the Iorotai operation, which

cae- off with slight resistance on Sept. 15. At this time the 31st

v/as the westernost division in General MacArthur's command, less than

350 niles from the Philippines, controlling the Halmahera Sea-cutting

off 45,000 Japs on the island of Ialuahera. On November 15, a bat-

talion combat team from the 167th In antry backtracked several hundred

niles to the tiny Mapia Island !;roup to knock out a Jap spotter sta-

tion. This battalion killed exactly 167 bittcrly-resi.ting, well-en-









---(6)

trenched Japs in ti~o days with the lo:1. of only 12 American lives.

In the nearby Asia Isluno groupup a reinforced company of the 124th

lunde&i to find no J:~~.,

For seven ronth::, while !;ind:; o -.as by-passed in favor of the

Loyte operation and later Luzon, the 'lat maintained the perimeter

defense .or tho 13th Air FYoreo and curried out patrol missions into

I-orotai's rugged interior continuously. Companies lived on outpost

duty for weeks at a timae, supplied by barge and plane; men "on the line"

:.int their nights on guard in pillboxes; patrols poked constantly into

t:ie :ountainous .junl,;le in quest of Japs who had been driveAn to the

.l.nirior ,by our invasion. I1o headlines in this type of military

operation, but it was a cruolling job for the infantryman. Several

thousand Japs were killed on the island during the seven months, fer-

reted out in ones, tvos, and small forces. By the time the Division

left for the M:ind .nio operation, those Japs who had not been killed on

i;orotui were withered beyond effectiveness by being denied access to

food or medical attention.

Mindanuo

In Mindanao, the 31st welcomed the chvronce to fin:ht in open country,

but its line soldiers found the Sayre I'ighvwy no open road. The 124th,

taking the lead in the push northlard fron .,ubacun, had not gone five

riiles before its point battalion was en ai-ed in a six-hour battle, from

midnightt to dawn. The battle, which took place in uogon grass head-

high, was described by Major General Iartin as "to the best of ny

knowledge the firot meeting engagement in the Pacific var". The Japs

had been met as they narohed south on the narrow raod to attack Kabacan,

and their defeat in this contact prevunto(d then from erecting defenses

in the c;orge country farther north wh.ch mniht have proved costly both











men and time to the division.

Before the juncture with the 108th ROT took place above Malay-

balay, some 100 miles from Kabaoan, there was one other bitter fight

involving large numbers of men. This was the fight below the Marnnag

No. 1 airstrip, where yaps fantastically dug-in beneath tree roots

fought for seven days before they were blown out of their little patch

of woods which commanded the highway. To men of the division this

battle has come to be known as "The Battle- of olgan Woods ,* n memory

of beloved Chaplain Thomas A. Colgan, who gave his life there in a

vain attempt.to rescue wounded from the woods' deadly fringe. All

three battalions of the 124th were involved in tbsa scrap before it was

over.

The 155th took over the point of the march from Uaramag, meeting

little resistance the remainder ot the distance, but scoring one com-

plete route when a Jap force was caught sunning itself along a stream

and was annihilated. In all, 196 Japs were killed, 61 by the lead
company, when the rushing stream drowned out the shots which killed

their outpost guards. The 155th Had but one fatality, a battalion

commander.
General Eichelberger, Eighth Army Commander, commended the 31st

and the 108th ROT for their execution of the operation which split all

Jap forces in central Mindanao.

But praised by the Commanding General, !Iajor General Clarence A.

Martin, 31st Division Commander, for making possible this drive vas the

106th Engineer Combat Battalion, Laboring day and night under a fierce
sun and in torrential rains to repair the scores of bridges which re-

treating Japs had left in smoking ruins, the battalion hauled 400 tons

(more)









----(8)

of massive bridge equipment over 150 ,Oiles of swampy roads and

carabao-oart trails to span five gorges with Bailey bridges totaling

560 feet in length.

They floated one infantry support bridge on 52 pontons to cross a

428-foot wide river and filled in two canyons with 85,000 cubic yards

of dynamited dirt and rook so that artillery and heavy supply vehicles

could keep up with the rapid advances. In one 20 mile stretch of road

through rugged mountains they repaired 33 bridges and culverts and kept

traffic moving at the same time by means of winches, bull dozers, and

by-passes. In all, nearly 100 bridges were built or rebuilt--almost

one bridge per mile. Exposed to the constant threat of Jap attacks,

coach machine operator had to be covered by a guard 24 hours a day.

Vith the Sayre Highway opened, the 31st Infantry Division turned

atv:ard in three columns to pursue the Japs who had fled to the

mountains. The 124th Infantry, commanded by Col. Edward M. Starr,

climbed into the foothills just east of "alaybalay, and the 167th, led

by Col, LaRoy S. Graham, pushed down the almost-impassable Talomo Trail

in the vicinity of Palma. The 155th sent patrols into the mountains

from Valencia.

In the Silae Creek Canyon area, where the 124th launched its drive,

the Japs holed up in caves and gorges and h:d to be dug out by grennde-

tossing Yanks after weeks of bitter pursuit. All supplies were dropped

to them by plane. In dozens of encounters the enemy forces were ncat-

trred and pushed into the hills, but the combined attrition of moun-

tainous terrain, constant rains, and Jap delaying groups made this push

one of the touQhest of the r; giment's history. The 124th returned front

the Silae drive about June 25th, going into bivouac five miles south of

Li:nlaybalay along the CSayre Highway.









----(9)

On June 26th, the l;~th Infantry left Valencia's nearby hills and

unde the lon-oE inland water movenient of the Philippine campaign to

deny the Japs a place of refuge in the mosquito-infested AKtusan Valley

svianps in northeastern Mindanao. Moving up the Agusan River in LOM's

and barges, the troops covered 80 miles of the twisting Agusan and its

tributaries to reach their base area. Heavy artillery pieces were

hauled from barges up the steep river bank, tons of supplies were un-

loaded by hand, and a muddy banana grove became the base camp. Organ-

ized guerrillas fought alongside the infantrymen, helping to seek out

and kill the hundreds of Japs that were gathering in the swamps after

having been driven from the mountains to the west. The GI's found a

name for their newest battlefield--"Gruesome Valley."

Meanwhile, units of the 167th Infantry made slow gains down the

Kibawe-Talomo Trail, dubbed "Heartbreak Trail" by infantrymen who

lived and fought-in the knee-deep mud. The trail, an4 escape route

linking Davao with the Sayre Highway, passed over mountains and across

rivers.. Vehicles could negotiate but a few miles and after that all

equipment vent forTward on human backs. Carabao, the Philippine beast

of burden, bogged down in the sloughs and had to be winched out with

cateor illar:. Int'antrymen scrambling up mountain sides on hands and

noes yore blasted by Jap grenades and picked off by Jap riflemen from

positions a.lo:st directly above then, so steep was the terrain. Sol-

diors co.!in,- out of this. almost-imponetrable jungle were a chalky white

'because of the ve3 station's total blackout of the sun. Advances were

,iou&ured in yards aiLd.the blood o.f iany ien. Both the wounded and the

dead vere vacuated on the should r,; of their comrades and Filipino

carriers. An eventual ponetr:ition of more than 26 miles vwas achieved

only after thie gre:~test of heorbro~jlin. efforts and sacrifices in ten

weeks' time. The Jap troops that were not slain were pushed steadily

back and their threat reduced to negligible strength.

When the war ended the 31st was widely scattered throughout Minda-

nao, but destined to be even more so in a short time. The 15Lth was

at grips with 2,OO Japs in the Upper. Agusan Valley, where its ist

Battalion remained until a fev weeks before the division embarked for

the states, while other l15th companies operated a PV enclosure on the

north coast. The 167th was still on the Kibawe-Talomo Trail, but was

soon pulled back and sent to Davao, there to take in thousands of sur-

rendering Japs and operate the huge stockade until a few days before

it embarked. The 124th remained in central Mindanao, receiving sur-

rendering Japs, sending out patrols to round up enemy stragglers, and

guarding bridges and other army installations.
