Welcome to the 103d Infantry Division WWII Association

This is the official site for the 103d Infantry Division (Cactus) World War II Association.


The information on this site is an accurate account of the 103d Infantry Division (Cactus) - from the division's activation on November 15, 1942 to their deactivation on September 22, 1945.


Above all, the members of the 103d Infantry Division (Cactus) Association endeavor to honor the memory of all those who were killed in action, those who were wounded, and all who have passed away since the end of World War II.


The 103d Infantry Division (Cactus) World War II Association is seeking any information on those who served with the Division during World War II. If you are one of the Cactus men who served, or know of someone who served, please go to our CONTACT section and let us know. If you would like to join the 103d Infantry Division (Cactus) Association, fill out the APPLICATION FOR MEMBERSHIP and send it to us.


Our goal is to preserve the history and memory of all who answered the “Call to Duty.”
