"The aggressive courage, unselfish devotion,
tenacity of purpose and outstanding leadership
of all ranks is evidenced by the fact that the
4th Infantry Division has never failed to capture its
assigned objectives and has never lost ground to the enemy...
It is without reservation that I say you have a hard
fighting, smooth functioning,division."

"DEEDS, NOT WORDS"
Motto of the 22nd regiment
Welcome to the home of the
4th Infantry Division Reenactment group.
We are a new unit from Indiana
that seeks to honor the American soldier
in WWII through reenactment.
We seek to gain an understanding of our past,
and an understanding of what our fathers
and grandfathers must have endured, by trying to live in their shoes,
even for a moment.
We believe that by reenacting the past,
we can touch, even for that moment,
that which made them our 'Greatest Generation.'
By trying to understand how they lived,
how they fought, and how they died,
we try to better ourselves. While walking a mile
in their shoes, we cannot do, we can take those
first few steps to understand, and to honour,
those that made us what we are.
It is to those men of the 4th United States Infantry Division,
that we dedicate ourselves and this Unit.
Gentlemen, we salute you!
