25th Infantry Division Association Collection
The 25th Infantry Division was created from the Hawaiian Division of the United States Army. Its history includes participation in World War II, the occupation of Japan, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Gulf War. The Division is often referred to as “Tropic Lightning.”
This collection contains personal donations from 25th Infantry Division veterans from World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam, and more recent conflicts. Materials include official military reports, personal recollections, maps, photographs, letters, newspapers and clippings, oral histories, and various personal memorabilia. Donations from the Association are ongoing and the collection continues to grow.
