4. 75th Anniversary 1943 – 2018
In recognition of the 75th anniversary of the founding of the 66th Infantry Division, Veterans of this unit have once more gathered at Camp Blanding.
In the presence of these men, and with the memory of their fallen brothers in our hearts, we rededicate this monument that honors them.
We are the second, third, and fourth generations who are the beneficiaries of the sacrifices these men made so many years ago.
We will never forget their willingness to defend this country, their bravery in battle, nor these men who made the ultimate sacrifice.
Their legacy will always be part of us, and for that we are eternally grateful.
