Welcome to The Society of the 3rd Infantry Division Website

Welcome to The Society of the 3rd Infantry Division

The Society of the 3rd Infantry Division is the Army’s oldest continuously active military society and has supported Dogface Soldiers of the division since 1919. The Society exists to honor fallen Dogface Soldiers, to support division and family members, and to perpetuate a social network of Dogface Soldiers, past and present.

As a Dogface Soldier, you have experienced the bonds created while serving with your comrades—bonds that later in life often become as important to you as family. Believe us ol’ Dogface Soldiers when we tell you that you will be glad you kept up with comrades you served beside while assigned to our great division.

Rock of the Marne

The 3rd Infantry Division was activated at Camp Greene, North Carolina, in November 1917. Eight months later, at midnight on 14 July 1918 the Division went into combat for the first time. During World War I, as a member of the American Expeditionary Force to Europe the Division earned its name as the "Rock of the Marne," when surrounding units retreated, the 3rd Infantry Division remained. Although the stand was quite successful, the unit suffered many casualties.
