Using History to Prepare for Today's Challenges

Jonathan Koester of NCO Journal recently wrote an article about 2nd Infantry division titled "2nd Infantry Division NCOs use history's lessons to prepare for today's challenges". In the article Mr. Koester discusses the rich history of the 2nd Infantry Division of the U.S. Army.

Originally formed on October 26, 1917 in Bourmont, France the 2nd Infantry Division are the only U.S. Army division formed overseas. The 2nd infantry division has served in four different wars (and are still serving today in Korea) and has 38 Soldiers who received the Medal of Honor for their actions in battle. Koester writes, "Those 38 heroic tales are told at the 2nd Infantry Division Museum at Camp Red Cloud, and those stories help inspire NCOs in their missions today."
