|The following photographic yearbook was printed in August 1944 by the 65th Infantry Division to commemorate the division’s first year of formation and training at Camp Shelby, Mississippi.
TO THE OFFICERS AND MEN OF THE 65TH INFANTRY DIVISION
One year ago, the 65th Infantry Division was born. This photographic history is published to celebrate our first year together, and to give you, by means or photographs, a record of the events which have molded us into an efficient, fighting team.
Many of those who stood with us when this Division was activated are no longer with us. Others will leave before another year passes. In spite of these losses the 65th Infantry Division will live on as an integrated combat unit. Each of you has contributed to its success and progress.
In later years, after victory has been won, we can look at this book and recall with pride the experiences which were ours during this first year.
