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.

I served in the 3-7 IN twice. I was the S3Air of 3-7 in Vietnam during Tet 1968, and Commanded Echo Company until I left to be an Aide to the Former Commander of the 199th Light Infantry Brigade as he made MG and became the J1 of MACV.

I later was assigned to the 3-7 as the S1 when it was part of the 197th Brigade at Fort Benning Georgia in 1973-74.

My only other connection was to assign Infantry Captains to the 7th Infantry while an Assignment Officer at Infantry Branch at MILPERCEN from 1979-81.

I serve as Chaplain at the Springfield (Ohio) Masonic Retirement Community. I share here about the death of William C. Pursch on Friday January 12 2018.

William's military career began in 1960 with the 7th Infantry (Cottonbalers).

There will be a Masonic Service and Memorial Service for William on Saturday February 10, 2018 at 2 PM in the Burkhart Auditorium, 2655 W National Road, Springfield OH 45504.

He is to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery later in 2018.

Served with 1st/7th Infantry Battalion with Headquarters company as a 36 Kilo from 1976 until 1979 had a lot of good friends we had a brotherhood that took care of each other. I'm glad to see that there is a 7th Infantry Regiment Association, I can truly say that I am proud to have served as a Cotton Baler. And who knows with any luck I maybe able to find some friends that I served with through the association.
