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.

To Officers and Men of the 31st Infantry Division:
The Dixie Division made an enviable record in World War II and estab-
lished itself as one of the finest combat divisions in the history of the United
States Army. I am proud to have served with such a fine group of fighting
men.
It is my sincere wish that each member of the division will have little diffi-
culty in readjusting himself to civil life and that many years of happiness
and'prosperity will be the reward of a job well done.
May each of us now fight as diligently for a lasting peace as we did in
prosecuting the war.
My sincere good wishes to each of you.



SJOSEPH C. HUTCHISON

had worked toward for long tedious months of hard

It was early in July, when the Division Commander or-

miles to Ocala Forest, in the heart of Florida. The march
was made in three days, well within the time limit set.

field and began the return march to Blanding. The return
was made also in three days, during the hottest and most
uncomfortable weather of the hot north Florida summer.
Back from Ocala, the Division began preparations to
take the field in grand scale war games in Louisiana, to
begin in August.
Early in August truck columns began the long march to
Sthe bayou country of Louisiana. Itineraries were mapped in
such a way as to direct units through their home territory
if possible. Civic organizations and groups of well wishers
all along the route set up all sorts of accommodations for
transient Dixie soldiers. Entertainments were planned for

of which the largest was the Halmaheras. On these were
strong Japanese installations, it being estimated that on the
Halmaheras alone there were 50,000 Japanese. The plan
was for the 31st Diirision, plus one combat team from the
32nd Division, to attack Morotai on the 15th of Septem-
ber, 1944. The assault troops were commanded by Major
General Persons and the assault was followed by the
landing of a large number of service troops with the
mission of building air-strips at Morotai. This operation
was designed to provide airfields for fighter planes to -- I

Combat Team, and the balance of the combat troops to be
loaded at Maffin Bay. Again the shipping was terribly .
short and only the barest necessities could be carried with
the troops.
On the morning of September 11 all combat troops were
loaded, leaving much of their equipment and service
troops behind, and proceeded by convoy to Morotai. The --
convoy consisted of about 150 ships, and included cruisers,
aircraft carriers, destrbyers, destroyer escorts, mine-sweep-
ers and picket boats, and among the personnel and ma-
terial carriers were Liberty ships, LSD's, LST's and LCI's.
Prior to the sailing of the convoy at Maffin Bay, the Di-
vision was joined by a large group of press represen-
tatives and GHQ observers. The convoy from Aitape
joined the main body at 10:00 A.M., September 11, 1944,
and the invading force sailed. It was learned that General
MacArthur was on board the cruiser Nashville and that
Admiral Barbey was with him. The convoy was under
the command of Admiral Fechteler. Other than occasional
alarms, the trip to Morotai was uneventful, and on the
morning of September 15 the convoy opened fire at 7:30
A.M., with some of the naval combat ships firing on Hal-
mahera, and the balance of Morotai. The first casualty was
a Japanese barge which was destroyed while attempting
to escape. At this time naval fighter planes of the aircraft
carriers and army planes from the nearest base at Biak
covered the invading forces. The shelling increased in
intensity until 8:30 A.M., when our amphibious tanks
emerged from the LST's and were quickly followed by
Alligators, LCT's, and LCI's.
The movement was beautifully executed, but rough

*The landing was made at three points, with the 167th
Infantry, the 155th Infantry and the 124th Infantry land-
ing at separate beaches. Native villages were set afire by
the shelling, and there was little opposition on the part
of the Japanese and few casualties. The D-Day objective
was reached at 12:30, when the command was halted
and ordered to dig in. General MacArthur came ashore

water, and had to be pulled ashore by cables. Bulk cargo

night the Japanese air force bombed the command two or
three times. The Navy kept its aircraft carriers off Morotai
for several days and during the daytime its planes pro-
tected the island from air raids. At night by use of de-

strong defensive position was organized on Morotai both
inland and on the beach immediately after seizing the

lightly held. Throughout the 31st Division's occupancy of
Morotai the Japanese attempted to reinforce the Morotai
garrison from Halmahera, but rarely succeeded. There
were frequent raids on our position at Morotai and a total
of 1266 Japanese were killed and 72 captured by the 31st
Division.

General Martin was an officer of much experience against
the Japanese. As a Regimental Commander he had fought
in the Buna Campaign, and as Assistant Division Com-
mander of the 32nd Division he had seen combat on many
fields.
The Division felt keenly the loss of a Commanding Gen-
eral who was widely known as one of the best in the en-
tire Army. Soon, however, it came to realize that it was
once again in the hands of a most capable, fearless, and
aggressive General. The Southern Philippines Campaign,

SILVER STAR MEDAL













In 1932 the Army Silver Citation Star was placed on a bronze pendant and
a ribbon of its own was designed, instead of being placed on a campaign medal
ribbon. Silver Star Medal, by Act of Congress December 15, 1942, is awarded
for "each citation of any person for gallantry in action while serving in any
capacity with the Army ... not warranting the award of a medal of honor or
distinguished service cross."
Silver Star Medal was made Navy decoration August 7, 1942, by Act of
Congress.
