    3rd Infantry Division

    Maj. Gen. Joseph T. Dickman: Dickman was commissioned in the 3d Cavalry Regiment upon graduation from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1881. After attending the U.S. Army Cavalry School, he saw combat during the Apache War in 1885, then participated in the Mexican border operations against the Garza revolutionists and outlaws. During the Spanish-American War, Capt. Dickman served on the staff of Gen. Joseph Wheeler in Cuba. In 1899, he once again saw combat during the Philippine Insurrection on the island of Panay. In November 1917, Maj. Gen. Dickman assumed command of the Third Division at Camp Greene, North Carolina, and led the division in combat at Château-Thierry, France. During the Second Battle of the Marne, his leadership ensured the division held the Marne River crossings against the German Summer Offensive and earned the division its distinguishing nickname, “Rock of the Marne.” He then commanded IV Corps during the St. Mihiel Offensive, I Corps during the Meuse-Argonne Offensive, and was the first commanding general of Third Army during the Army of Occupation of Germany. Dickman retired from the U. S. Army in October 1921.
