    The 823rd Tank Destroyer Bn, 30th Infantry Division near Mortain, France. The 832rd and 30th ID units held off the elite 1st and 2nd Panser Divisions ensuring success of the Normandy Breakout and victories at St. Lo. In a letter to the 30th Infantry Division commander, Maj. Gen. Leland S. Hobbs, Marshall said, “The 30th Division was among five best divisions in the infantry division category. We picked the 30th Division No. 1…… the most outstanding infantry division of the ETO.” (Photo courtesy of 30th Infantry Division Association)
