Reply Danny Thomas on May 31, 2022 at 12:00 pm WWI 20th Infantry “Division” not Regiment; Twentieth Division (Regular Army) Organized at Camp Sevier, S.C., on Aug. 12, 1918. The 48th and 50th Regular Army Infantry Regiments were assigned to this division and these regiments furnished the nucleus for the organization of the other two infantry regiments of the division. The artillery brigade of the division was organized at Camp Jackson, S.C., and never actually joined the division at Camp Sevier. The organization of the division was about completed at the end of October and all units were undergoing intensive training in preparation for overseas service. All organizations not belonging to the Regular Army were demobilized by Feb. 28, 1919. Commanders of division: Col. Louis J. VanSchaick, Aug. 9 to Aug. 18, 1918; Col. Lawrence B. Simonds, Aug. 18 to Aug. 27, 1918; Col. Wm. F. Grote, Aug. 27 to Sept. 30, 1918; Brig. Gen. F. Leroy Sweetser, Sept. 30th until demobilization. This division was composed of the following organizations: 20th Hqs. Troop; 39th, 40th Inf. Bn.; 48th, 89th, 50th, 90th Inf.; 58th, 59th 60th Machine Gun Bns.; 20th Fld. Arty. Brig.

Reply Galen T Hof on April 12, 2021 at 8:23 am Reaching out to anyone who may have known my uncle…Joe Hof, Co. K, 3rd Bn, 20th inf., 6th Div., KIA Luzon, Phillipines, February 1945. Reply Danny Thomas on April 14, 2021 at 2:23 pm To Galen T Hof I can’t be positive, but there’s a good chance my father knew him. He was also in that company, first as a rifleman then selected to be a medic. If Sgt Hof was KIA on Feb 5th, that would have been during the battle of Munoz. My father was WIA during that battle on Feb 1st. Reply Scott Huffman on August 2, 2021 at 7:39 pm My uncle Virgil Wilson might have known him. My uncle was KIA March 29, 1945 – he was a automatic rifleman with Company K Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
