2nd Battalion, 18th Infantry

Have you seen photos of 2/18th Infantry parading in Moscow as part of a big international celebration of World War II victory? Vanguards are looking sharp in a new blue Army Service Uniform (ASU) with white shirts. I understand that Germany also provided a contingent for the parade.

This reminded me of 1963 when several West German Soldiers told me that it was wrong for U.S. & Germany to have fought each other in WW II; assuring me that "...next time, you & I will march down the streets of Moscow together." Those guys should have become fortune tellers. cyclops

Sounds good, John, I'm sure a lot of groups would like to march down the streets of Moscow. Laughing Where did you see the photos, of 2/18 troops, or do you have an online link?

I think but I might be wrong, that 2/18 was reflagged into the 170th Infantry stationed in Germany

Denny, a lot of former Big Red One units have found other homes throughout the U.S. Army during our current conflict with terrorists. 1/2nd Inf., & 2/28th Inf. both now serve in 172nd Infantry Brigade, recently returned to Germany from Iraq. It wouldn't surprise me if 2/18th is elsewhere.

Here's your photo & article. You're correct, Denny, that's the 170th Infantry Brigade.
