About 36th ID

36th Infantry Division

Created in 1917, the 36th Infantry Division first saw combat on the First World War's Western Front in October 1918.  During World War II its amphibious assault at Salerno, Italy made it the first American division to land on the continent of Europe. After bloody battles to take San Pietro and cross the Rapido River, the 36th undertook a daring maneuver that led the breakout from Anzio. Four days later it became the first Allied unit to pass through Rome. The division helped spearhead the invasion of Southern France, fought its way through the Vosges Mountains and the Siegfried Line into Germany, and then sliced into Austria as Axis tyranny crumbled under its mighty blows.  Throughout the Cold War, the Fighting 36th manned the ramparts of freedom, keeping a constant vigil until the communist threat collapsed. From Peace Keeping Missions in the Balkans to the battles against terrorism at the dawn of the 21st Century, the 36th Infantry Division has played an innovative and important in America's defense.  Today, the 36th Infantry Division conducts training and mobilization readiness to provide ready and responsive forces that can deploy to theaters of operations and conduct unified land operations in joint and coalition environments in support of a geographical combatant commander.
