Founded in 2014, the 16th Infantry Regiment Historical Society was born out of the idea to honor and remember the vital role the regiment played in World War II. Over time, the Society has grown into a project far greater than we initially envisioned, tracing the regiment’s history from World War I to today. It’s our hope to inspire people of all ages to protect our future by remembering our past.
