Inscription.  The Infantry, the largest combat branch of the Army, represented the greatest American fighting force ever to enter the field of battle. Six million infantrymen, or foot soldiers, fought the complexities of the war on many battle fronts including the great Battle of Normandy, waged between June and August, 1944. After the largest amphibious invasion in history, Allied armies of more than a million men battled on the picturesque lands of northwest France to decide the fate of Europe.
We proudly honor those who served in the United States Army Field Infantry during World War II.
