3 ID in 1991

Post by RichardLowry » Mon Jan 19, 2004 5:07 pm

easyand,

What is the subject of your diarama? The 3 ID was in Germany in 1991. American Army Infantry divisions use High Mobility Multi Wheeled Vehicles HMMWVs, or Hummers, in many roles. They are used as ambulances, command vehicles, small trucks, recon vehicles, and more.

It is unusual that you are making a diarama of something other than Desert Storm. If you are making a Desert Storm diarama, the 3 Infantry Division was not involved in Desert Storm. However, the 3d Armored Division was part of VII Corps in Iraq. Armored Divisions use HMMWVs in similar roles.

4th Battalion, 7th Infantry Regiment's home command was the 3 ID but they were attached to the 1st Armored Division. The 3d Armored division supplied some battalions and some support units but the 3ID was not involved in Desert Storm.

As for the breakout of Iraqi Defences-VII Corps, which included 1st Armored Division and 4-7 Infantry, swept around the Iraqi defences. Only the 1st Infantry Division, 1st Cav Division, and the Marines attacked through the Iraqi defensive lines.

1st Brigade of the 1st Armored Division, of which 4-7 Infantry was a part, did not fight the Iraqis until the Battle of the 73d Easting.

Please refer to my book-"The Gulf War Chronicles" or "Iron Soldiers" by Tom Carhart for details.
