24th Infantry Division
The 24th Infantry Division, the Victory Division, has distinguished itself as one of the most outstanding divisions in the United States Army. The soldiers who graced the ranks of the 24th Infantry Division earned the distinct of being the first to inflict enemy casualties on December 7, 1941, in defiance of the Japanese attack of Pearl Harbor. As a result the Division's motto was selected to be "First to Fight!" Dubbed "Taro Leafers" because of the Division's Hawaii birthplace, their motto took on new meaning as they proved their ability to respond rapidly to crises anywhere in the world.
