|About the 24th Infantry Division|
We are the "First to Fight Division."
We were the first to take arms against Imperial Japanese forces at Pearl Harbor, and we were the first to engage the North Korean aggressors with Task Force Smith at Osan, SK on July 5, 1950.
Of the 24th, Japanese Army General Yamashita said "It broke the back of the Japanese Army at Leyte Island's Breakneck Ridge." And the liberated people of The Philippines called us the "Victory Division."
Soldiers of the 24th Division have always stood ready to defend freedom and the democratic way of life, anytime, anywhere, against all aggressors, whether in the jungles, through the snow, or on the sands of Iraq half way around the globe.
We are fiercely Proud of our heritage as the "First to Fight" in defense of Freedom!!!

I am very sorry but I need to report that Margaret is NOT buried at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery. I went today to photograph her stone and she is not in their database at all.
It may be that she is buried in Oregon, since she died in Lane County OR.
I have sent an edit to the creator of the memorial. I hope she responds and will delete the memorial's current burial location, changing it to "unknown".

Thank you so much for the additional information on him. He was my father-in-law. Often talked about the days of being a prisoner.
