Before the well-known heroics of the 101st Airborne Division at Normandy, Oklahoma's 45th Infantry Division Thunderbirds led some of the largest and most critical amphibious assaults of World War II. In the words of General George S. Patton: "Born at sea, baptized in blood, your fame shall never die. The 45th Infantry Division is one of the best, if not the best division in the history of American arms." This week on LoyalTV, join us at the 45th Infantry Division Museum in Oklahoma City for a look at the storied history of the Thunderbirds and their valiant efforts across three continents.
