The 1st Infantry Division: the first American victory in Europe in 1918
The 1st Infantry Division is an infantry division of the U.S. Army. It is nicknamed "Big Red One" because of its crest representing a large red "1" on a gold background. This division is the first to have been created specifically for the purpose of fighting Germany during the First World War. It is also the oldest division to have served continuously since its creation. The 1st American Infantry Division was first sent into combat in 1917, and later distinguished itself by winning the first American victory in Europe, in Picardy in 1918. During the Second World War, this company will enter the conflict by participating in the operation "Torch" in 1942, then in the invasion of Sicily in 1943. The 1st Infantry Division also landed heroically during Operation "Overlord" on Omaha Beach alongside the 29th Infantry Division. Since the end of the war, this division has served in the Vietnam War and the Gulf War, then also in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq.
