Item DescriptionThe 29th Infantry Division ("'Blue and Grey") is an infantry division of the United States Army based in Fort Belvoir, Virginia. It is a formation of the United States Army National Guard and contains units from Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina.
Called up for service in World War II, the division was sent to England where it trained for two years, before participating in Operation Overlord, the landings in Normandy, France. The division is best known for being among the first wave of troops to the shore at Omaha Beach, suffering massive casualties in the process. It then advanced to Saint-Lo, and eventually through France and into Germany itself. These actions have since been the subject of many motion pictures and video games.
