Gentlemen, This thread is for photos of the American Expeditionary Force's 42nd Infantry "Rainbow" Division. Feel free to contribute anything relevant you may have in your collections. The 42nd was formed in 1917 from units across 26 states and the District of Columbia. The 42nd's moniker came from Douglas MacArthur when he suggested the amalgamation of state formations and said it would "stretch over the whole country like a rainbow." A quick unit history can be found on 42nd Infantry Division (United States) - Wikipedia. Enjoy! Ben
