"29, Let's Go!"
29th Infantry Division
United States Army
World War II
From North and South in our land
we came to foreign shores that
liberty and freedom might prevail.

On D-Day, 6 June 1944, in the greatest
allied amphibious assault of World
War II, the 29th Infantry Division
stormed ashore on Omaha Beach, Normandy,
France, to help win a beachhead that led
to the liberation of Europe and to
achieve undying fame.

Our fallen lie in distant fields.
They gave the last full measure of their
devotion. Sleep, comrades, forever young.

We Salute You
