The story of the U.S. Army’s 43rd “Winged Victory” Division whose memorable record in World War II will stand forever as an inspiration to all freedom-loving Americans.
The Division was organized following World War I, and was made up of National Guard troops from the New England States—Maine, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Connecticut.
Many of the organizations, particularly the Infantry Regiments and the Field Artillery Battalions had World War I records, and some had histories dating back to the days of the Revolutionary War.
The 43rd saw duty and combat in such places as New Zealand, New Caledonia, Guadalcanal, the Russells, New Georgia, Munda, Arundel, New Guinea, invasion of Lingayen, the Shimbu Line, and Ipo Dam, as well as the surrender and occupation.
