1st Infantry Division, The A Virtual Cemetery created by: snm
Description: A remarkable fighting machine officially called the Army's 1st Infantry Division, and unofficially the "Big Red One." The Allied invasion of Normandy was arguably the most important battle of World War II. The Army's 1st Infantry Division led the assault on Omaha Beach, previously coming from battles in Sicily and North Africa. From Normandy the 1st Division continued across France, Belgium & Germany. My Dad, Garvice T. Jobe, was part of the "Big Red One."
