"Fighting First Division"

"Red One Division"

The "Red One" Division achieved a number of firsts in World War I--to arrive in France, to be at the front, to fire at enemy, to raid, to suffer casualties and to be cited in general orders. Thus the insignia is a large, red numeral "one" on an olive drab shield. The "Fighting First" also fought in North Africa and Sicily.
