83d Infantry Division USA

The 83rd Division insignia consists of a monogrammatic design in gold spelling out the word "O-H-I-O" on a black triangular background. The insignia was selected during World War I because the division contained mostly Ohio draftees. Even though the division changed from an Ohio outfit to one representing the 48 States, the insignia still remains; however, a new nickname "Thunderbolt", was selected while the division was holding on the Rhine opposite Dusseldorf.

Arrived European Theatre of Operations on 19 April 1944.

Arrived Continent 19 June 1944 and the Division entered combat at 27 June1944
