About the 24th Infantry Division
We are the "First to Fight Division."
We were the first to take arms against Imperial Japanese forces at Pearl Harbor, and we were the first to engage the North Korean aggressors with Task Force Smith at Osan, SK on July 5, 1950.

Of the 24th, Japanese Army General Yamashita said "It broke the back of the Japanese Army at Leyte Island's Breakneck Ridge." And the liberated people of The Philippines called us the "Victory Division."

Soldiers of the 24th Division have always stood ready to defend freedom and the democratic way of life, anytime, anywhere, against all aggressors, whether in the jungles, through the snow, or on the sands of Iraq half way around the globe.
We are fiercely Proud of our heritage as the "First to Fight" in defense of Freedom!!!

RE: Elaine Parker Johnson
You are so very welcome for all of the pictures that we took & posted for you...

I had to go & talk to someone in the administration office as I couldn't find "Elaine" listed anywhere in the National Grave Site locator as she didn't have any plot info on her memorial.

Come to find out,Elaine was her middle name as well as the name she obviously went by but her given name is/was Mildred which is how they have her listed in the records @ BHNC as well as on the National Grave Site locator.Which is also what you see on the picture that was taken of her stone.

I did contact the person who created her memorial & asked that they correct her name & add Mildred as her name & put Elaine as her nickname...

Have a great day :-)

Timmons B. Jones Sr. - Memorial# 131471847
I was taking photos at the Sacramento VNC for some of your requests as well as some memorial pages I added. Mr. Jones' headstone says he was with the 24th Regiment of the Buffalo Soldiers. Please excuse my "ignorance" but would that mean he was also a member of the 24th Infantry Division?

I just thought I would bring him to your attention in case he is.



P.S. I'm working through all the photos I took today so I'm still working on fulfilling your requests.

photo request
I believe the photo you are requesting for memorial #83397298 is already on there. If you could double check and delete your request if it is.
