A Special message

The 83rd Infantry Division Association has expanded eligibility for Legacy Membership. We have also introduced a new category – “Active Duty Membership” for those currently serving in the 83rd Army Reserve Readiness Training Center (ARRTC).

Who can join?

Regular Member: Any person who was assigned to the 83rd Infantry Division between August 8, 1942, to and including April 30, 1946 or was assigned to the 83rd ARCOM or 83rd ARRTC

Legacy Member:

  • All current spouses, widows, and widowers of those eligible to be a Regular Member
  • lineal descendants by birth or adoption to include sons, daughters, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren of persons living or deceased who are (were) eligible for Regular Membership and current spouses
  • collateral descendants by blood or marriage to include nephews, nieces, grand nephews and nieces of Members, great grand nephews and nieces, current spouses and surviving widows. 

Active Duty Member: Any active duty members of the 83rd ARRTC

Associate Member: Any person who has expressed an interest in the Association other than for commercial or personal monetary gain, but who does not qualify for any other type of membership classification.

For the Association to continue to thrive as a national organization, to continue to honor our veterans, and to continue to preserve and promote the 83rd’s historical legacy for future generations, we must continue to grow.

How will we do that?

Our veterans’ stories, their buddies’ stories,  must become our families’ stories – the daily physical danger and  hardships, the seemingly impossible odds of surviving combat, the liberation of countless villages and towns … a concentration camp — all of it,  the unvarnished reality of war.

And to become our families’ stories, we have to share them with our families – spouses, our brothers and sisters, grandchildren and great grandchildren, grand nephews and grand nieces.  We firmly believe that the Association can serve as a catalyst by reaching out to all Legacy candidates to join us – starting with our own family members.
