The 3rd Infantry Division was born 95 years ago today at Camp Greene, NC, eight months later it earned it’s nickname “The Rock of the Marne” when they faced the Kaiser’s troops who were pursuing retreating French troops at the Marne River and held the line, saving Paris so Parisians can continue to be snotty prigs.
I spent six years in the Marne Division with the 2/15th Infantry on Wildflecken and the 1/7th Infantry (Cottonbalers) in Aschaffenburg, so Rocky has a special place in my heart.
And I still remember the words to the Division song “Dog Faced Soldier” and I probably sound like this singing it;
Unfortunately, the 3rd ID thinks less of me than I think of them. Folks in the 3rd ID tell me that their internet networks block TAH as “political extremists”. That makes me angry.
