* This unit was designated merely as the Security Platoon, Third Infantry Division. It was attached to Headquarters & Headquarters Company, 3rd Infantry Division. It was a special, "elite" platoon, of unique design. There were five squads of eight each, armed with one machine gun, one rocket launcher and one BAR per squad. The heavy armament was to allow its special mission. The platoon was to provide security for the Division Commander and generally the Division Headquarters, ie. perimeter security such as roadblocks, etc, as well as the "G Sections" at Division Headquarters.
At one time, there were physical profile requirements (eg. over 6' tall & over 300 score on standard PT test) and the platoon provided an Honor Guard and Division Drill Team, for special Headquarters ceremonies and Drill Team Competition. Jim Tobin

Operations within the Campaigns
Compiled by the Bureaucrats in the Military
(For an explanation read the 3ID historians paragraph below)
The infield fly rule makes more sense!

The reason for this is because an operation and a campaign are two different things. For the purposes of this message, an Operation is named by a unit, like the 3ID naming "Operation Marne Avalanche", or by someone in DOD who at the beginning of the conflict called it "Operation Iraqi Freedom". A campaign, on the other hand, one that will be listed on a unit's lineage and honors, is named by a specific DOD organization, the Military Awards Branch (telephone number is 703-325-8700) well after the campaign has begun and usually after it has ended. Each campaign has certain criteria: time limitations, combat zone area, percentage of a unit that must be in the area at the appropriate time for the unit to get the campaign credit, etc. (For example, the Sicily campaign in WWII has a time limitation of 9 July 1943 for ground troops to 17 August 1943 and the combat zone was Sicily and adjacent waters. Any unit that arrived in Sicily after 17 August 43 did not get credit for that campaign. The War Department published the campaign names, geographical and time limits, and names of units receiving for the campaign credit in a GO months after the campaign was over.)
Only the bullets were real!
