About Us

The Second (Indian Head) Division Association is the official organization of veterans who served in the 2nd Infantry Division of the U.S. Army. It represents those veterans who have served in the 2nd Infantry Division in four of our nation’s conflicts, as well as those who have served during peacetime, to include Korea on Freedom’s Frontier since 1965. Active membership is open to individuals who served or are serving with the Second Infantry Division and its attached units. Associate and Honorary memberships are also available. In addition to our active U.S. members, we have members from the Dutch and French battalions that were attached to the Second Infantry Division during combat operations, and Korean Augmentation to the United States Army (KATUSA) soldiers who served with the Second Infantry.

It is a non-profit, non-political association of former and present members of the 2nd Infantry Division that was formed in Bourmont, France in 1917. It is chartered in the State of Texas as a non-profit, tax-exempt organization pursuant to Section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code.

The objectives of the Association are:

  • To perpetuate and memorialize the valiant acts and patriotic deeds of the members of the Second Infantry Division.

  • To promote and maintain friendships and camaraderie created by active service with the Second Infantry Division and its attached units.

  • To set examples of patriotism.

  • To pay homage to our honored dead.

  • To provide scholarships for qualified young men and women.

  • To support the active Second Infantry Division.

  • To provide services for and protect the interests of members, their dependents and survivors.

  8. Hi. I am not a former soldier that served with the unit but my father did during the Korean War. He passed away in 1976 when I was 12 yrs old. I would like to try to find out and communicate with his buddies when he served. I thought your community would help me do that. Can a family member sign up? If not is there any 2nd Inf Div association I could sign up with? My dad was John S Mullins. Thank you for any help you can provide.

  10. My name is Steven Bussell and finally after 30 yrs. a pin broke on my scout badge. I am glad that you offer them on the site so that I can replace my most valued “scare ’em” badge (more than the jump or air assault wings). I am waiting for the membership application to arrive so that I can become a part of this association.

    I served with:
    4 Plt, E Co.
    1/31 Inf (M)
    Camp Howze, ROK

  11. My name is Robert Webber and I served with the 2nd on the DMZ, Korea Nov. 1966 until Oct. 1967. I exited Korea Dec. 1967. I was a Imjin Scout.

  12. I was with 2-1 infantry when the stood up in 2007 and was looking to purchase an indian head flag if at all possible

  13. I was with the 2ID in 2/23 Inf Mech. in Korea on the DMZ, 1968-69. The 2ID patch is the coolest in the Army, I think. It’s the 2ID’s birthday this year. I hope to make it to the Great Midwest and or the National convention. Never saw myself getting involved with veterans organizations. It keeps this oldish vet going.

  14. Doing some family histories with a couple of cousins and our grandfather was one of the first 2nd Division soldiers in WW1. He was a hero. Thank you all for your service.
