My father Otto Clyde Bailey served in the 7th Infantry During the Korean War. Would any of his fellow Cottonbalers have any photographs of him. He served in K Company and was from Maine.
Thanks!

My father served with the 7th during the Korean War. He was captured in April 1951 and died in captivity. I have a book about him and his experiences online. It is free to read.

Please post this link to the book for those who are interested in a real piece of history concerning the 7th and its brave men.

Thanks,

Hi,

I read that the 7th Infantry Regiment Association was started in Fort Worth, Texas in 1988. I live near Fort Worth and was wondering whether the 7th is involved in any military reenanctments (such as War of 1812) nearby.

To Whom It May Concern: I am a retired Naval Officer attempting to submit a member of the 7th IR, 3rd ID, for consideration of the Congressional Medal of Honor for combat actions in France in January, 1945. I do so with the blessing and concurrence of the member's living family members. PVT Mario Pomponio, then of Fairport, NY, was a newly assigned replacement in Co. E, 2nd Bn., 7th Infantry Regt., 3rd Infantry Div. when he was killed in action in Wirh-en-Plaine, France on 31 January 1945. I have several statements by fellow members of his unit (since deceased) that were sufficient to justifying a Distinguished Service Cross for this brave Soldier at the end of WWII. However, the magnitude of his combat actions is so powerful that I believe he was unfairly overlooked for the more appropriate CMOH. Private Pomponio was just 18 at the time of his death, and he has mostly been forgotten since the war. I would like to resurrect his persona with emphasis and obtain for him in death the recognition he was denied. My main focus here is to jog the memories of ANY members of Co. E who may still be living and obtain at least ONE WRITTEN STATEMENT to re-open the Army's award protocol. I ask for your organizations help with advice or information on how best to proceed with this inquiry. I was very pleased today to see President Trump award the CMOH to 1LT Garlin M. Conner, USA of Co. K, 3rd Bn., 7th IR. . .but I am NOT prepared to forsake young Mario Pomponio to obscurity. If ANYONE out there can direct me to a knowledgeable source, I will do all I can to get this great honor extended to one of the 3rd ID's finest.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

CAPT Steven F. Momano, USN (Ret.)

Who was the Battalion Commander of the 3rd Battalion 7th Infantry Regiment during Operation Iraqi Freedom in March 2003? I am trying to compile a brief history on the units during OIF and all my references do not list the Battalion Commander's name.

I am trying to find information about my cousin, Private 1st Class Harry R Thorpe Jr. (Service No. 33805383) who served with the 7th Inf. Reg, 3rd Inf. Div. during WW2. He was killed on 18 Mar 1945 and is buried in the Lorraine Amercian Cemetery in St. Avold, France. I would greatly appreciate if anyone could provide information on where the regiment and his unit were located on that day and what action they were involved in at the time. Thank you.

I was with HHC, 1st/7th Inf Cottonbalers from 1963-1966
in Aschaffenburg with the Medical Platoon. I retired in 1981 with 21 years service. In the 21 years I spent in the military I would rate this assignment as my favorite.My wife and I really enjoyed Aschaffenburg.My
CO was CPT Anderson and the 1st Sgt was 1SG Ramirez two of the best. I am looking for a set of cottonbaler unit crest, if anyone can help me email me at dgmalayne@yahoo.com I will buy them and pay for the shipping.
