Dog Face Soldiers mark 70th anniversary
Story by Capt. Randy Ready


Soldiers from 1st Armor Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, attended a ceremony commemorating the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Obersalzburg, Germany, May 5. The Society of the 3rd Infantry Division’s International Outpost hosted the ceremony as a way to honor the division’s achievements in Europe while preserving the division’s unique history.

U.S. Army Spc. Sean Cannell, a Cullman, Ala., native with the 10th Brigade Engineer Battalion, 1st Armor Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, highlights the prisoner of war and missing in action table at a ceremony commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of Obersalzburg, Germany. The table represents all service members who were or are currently missing. The 3rd Infantry Division still has 554 Soldiers missing in action from World War II.

U.S. Army Col. Robert Ashe, the commander for 1st Armor Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, addresses the crowd at a ceremony commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Liberation of Obersalzburg, Germany, May 5. Ashe said the opportunity for Soldiers to meet with the division’s World War II veterans helps expose the new Soldiers to 3ID’s rich history.

U.S. Army Spc. Patrick Hoffman, a native of Mason, Mich., and an imagery analyst with the 10th Brigade Engineer Battalion, 1st Armor Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, meets with World War II veteran John Miller of Linwood, Mich., at a ceremony commemorating the anniversary of the liberation of Obersalzburg, Germany, May 5. The ceremony brought current and past generations of the division together to honor those veterans who peacefully liberated the city 70 years ago.

Robert Dutil, a World War II veteran from Williams, Calif., raises the 48-star flag at a ceremony May 5 commemorating the liberation of Obersalzburg, Germany. Dutill was with the 3rd Infantry Division when the flag was raised 70 years earlier after the division had peacefully liberated the town. The flag has 48 stars because, at the time, Alaska and Hawaii had not yet been admitted to the U.S.
OBERSALZBURG, Germany – Current and former “Dog Face” Soldiers from the 3rd Infantry Division commemorated the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the towns of Obersalzburg and Berchtesgaden, Germany, during a celebration May 5.
 
The Society of the 3rd Infantry Division’s Outpost International hosted the ceremony and laid a wreath in honor of the 3ID veterans who liberated the towns in 1945.

World War II veterans Robert Dutil from Williams, California, and John Miller of Linwood, Michigan, raised the American flag during the ceremony. Both men were with division when they liberated the town 70 years ago. For Spc. Patrick Hoffman, an imagery analyst with the 10th Brigade Engineer Battalion, 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, the highlight of the ceremony was being able to escort the Veterans.
“It’s an honor to be in the ceremony with two of the men that were here, that fought their way through France and Germany,” said Hoffman, a native of Mason, Michigan. “I’m just glad to be a part of it.”

Soldiers from 1st ABCT, 3ID are serving as the Regionally Aligned Force for Europe and are participating in Operation Atlantic Resolve.
Col. Robert Ashe, the commander for 1ABCT, 3ID, said the current mission gives the brigade’s Soldiers the ability to learn more about the sacrifices of the division’s previous generations.
“One of the greatest benefits of being back in Europe is that we get the opportunity to engage in activities such as this that allow us to expose members of the team to the rich history of the 3rd Infantry Division,” said Ashe.

Retired U.S. Army Capt. Monika Stoy, the president of Outpost International, said one of their objectives is to honor the division’s achievements in Europe and Korea while preserving the division’s history.
“Outpost International’s objective is not just to remember the past,” said Stoy, “but to use the past to educate our youth, our leaders, our children.” For Stoy, history is significantly more than just learning what happened in the past.
“History is not just books, monuments and ceremonies,” added Stoy. “History is constantly with us. The more we learn from the past, the better we can understand why our present is the way it is and what we can do to shape our future.”
Stoy believes these ceremonies and the dedication of memorial plaques in communities liberated by the 3rd Infantry Division help to strengthen the friendships between the citizens in those areas and the United States.

Ashe added these relationships are getting stronger through the multinational exercises the brigade’s Soldiers are conducting as a part of Atlantic Resolve.
“Atlantic Resolve allows the various members of NATO the opportunity to train together and to better understand how we best complement each other,” Ashe stated. “Our presence and commitment to Atlantic Resolve provides assurance to our allies that we are committed to their security.”

Next update on 29th. We have a meeting with the Consul General in Munich that morning.
Rock of the Marne!
Tim Stoy
Here we are being interviewed by a reporter from the Bayern Augsburg radio 1.  Our distinguished Marne men- WWII veterans Robert Dutil from California and John Miller II from Michigan and the Cold War veteran Tim Stoy gave an excellent interview!
Rock of the Marne!
Monika

Outstanding. My first “tour” in Augsburg was the summer/fall of 1951, age 11, when my dad commanded the 2d ACR, the headquarters for which moved from Augsburg to Nurnberg in late 1951. The Oberburgermeister and the citizenry were very supportive of VII Corp Arty during the Gulf War.

Audie Murphy Petition Draws Major Endorsements
Murphy: a pioneer in PTSD awareness
September 9, 2013

Endorsements on the Audie Murphy Presidential Medal of Freedom Petition read like a VIP address book. Distinguished Americans such as Melvin Laird, Bob Dole, General Tommy Franks, Charlie Duke, Toby Keith, Dan Rather, Barbara Eden and countless others too numerous to mention. In addition to those named above, three-fourths of the 79 living Medal of Honor recipients have offered forth their endorsements.
Audie Murphy – his legacy continues
Honors are rendered and tributes bestowed by great societies so that we may remember the person; and the accomplishments of that person’s life and in doing so perpetuate their memory for future generations. Audie Murphy has certainly been accorded many tributes over the years since his untimely passing and his legacy continues to grow with the passage of time.

David Phillips
 Mr. Phillips is the Executive Administrator of the Audie Murphy Presidential Medal of Freedom Petition Campaign. In addition, he initially recommended Audie Murphy for this honor and spearheaded the campaign for its passage.
In the years immediately following World War II, “shell-shock” was often associated with “cowardliness” or “physical weakness” but Murphy, while never glamorizing his own heroism, managed to parlay his international stardom and name recognition to his advantage and helped turn the tables on the stigma often associated with PTSD. He spoke candidly with the media about the emotional effects of the war and the nightmares associated with it. In doing so, Audie Murphy served as an advocate for returning veterans of both the Korean and Vietnam wars and and used his stardom to  broadcast the issue of PTSD and the need for early diagnosis and treatment of this illness like a conference calling service, injecting awareness into the mainstream of American society.
The petition has the endorsement of more than 100 general officers, 50 of the 79 living medal of honor recipients, moonwalkers, members of congress, & celebrities. The nomination will be based upon Audie Murphy's advocacy for better treatment of veterans suffering from PTSD
