I would like to thank everyone for their information on this brave division. I'm a history major, I've always found World War Two history quite fascinating. To be living in a country where men like these fought thousands of miles away from home for a threat so serious, it might have possibly consumed the world.
I'm currently writing a short script for a class. I found that this site and the story of the identification bracelet inspiring. I do encourage for all to honor and remember these years of heroism. Forget Batman, Wolverine and those comic heroes. These guys were real. They fought for a real cause. I hope to honor them in my short story.

In memory of my uncle Lawrence Green a proud member of the Ozarks. He was severely injured in Germany and blinded in one eye.
It never stopped him and he never complained. He loved his fellow Ozarks and even took me to a reunion when I was a teenager. I named my third son after him Daniel Lawrence Held.
