"This division in World War II had the distinction of being not only the first to land in the European Theater, but also had more days in combat (over 600) than any other, and accredited with capturing more than 40,000 prisoners. The division had 16,401 battle casualties. The 34th ranked second to none and stands high on the scroll of honor among the greatest fighting units that ever carried the stars and stripes into battle."
