Mission Statement

The mission of the 16th Infantry Regiment Historical Society is to collect, preserve, interpret, and share the history of the 16th Infantry Regiment in World War II, so that all generations understand the price of freedom. Through extensive archival research, eyewitness accounts and interviews with survivors, the Society tries to reconstruct the events that took place in the deserts of North Africa, throughout the invasion of Sicily, on the beaches of Normandy, and during the final push into and across Germany.
