"BLOOD AND FIRE"

The 63rd Readiness Division provides Soldier and Family support, including Yellow Ribbon events, public works, facilities, maintenance, and resource management for the seven-state southwestern region. Its base operations, mission administrative and logistical support, enable commanders and units to maximize resources and focus on readiness.


The 63rd's history dates back to World War II. Due to an urgent need for combat power, the 63rd Infantry Division was activated June 15, 1943.

This led to the early movement of the three infantry regiments, which arrived in Marseille, France, on December 8, 1944. From mid-February 1945 until the end of World War II, the 63rd ID carved a path of “blood and fire”through the Siegfried Line to Worms, Mannheim, Heidelberg, Gunzburg, and finally, Landsberg, Germany.

63rd ID regiments earned seven Presidential Unit Citations in recognition of their combat record,which included the capturing of more than 21,000 enemy soldiers.

The 63rd ID returned home after the war and inactivated on September 27, 1945.
