The 32nd Red Arrow Division was first formed in
July 1917 at Camp MacArthur, Waco, Texas of National
Guard units from both Wisconsin and Michigan.
It's [sic] 27,000 men arrived in Europe in January
and February 1918, and were committed to battle in
May 1918. It was the first division to pierce the fames
German Hindenburg Line of Defense. From a French
General, then all French Troops, it was given the
