"Rock of the Marne"Below Provided by Lifetime Member Raider
It all began during World War I when the newly-formed 3rd Division (later re-designated as the 3rd Infantry Division) was in France as part of the American Expeditionary Force. The division's 28,000 Soldiers arrived on Europe's shores prepared to defeat the last wave of German offensives.
At Chateau-Thierry, as French troops retreated from the German onslaught, men of the 7th Machine Gun Battalion of the 3rd Division were rushed to Chateau-Thierry and set up a defensive position along the Marne River.
Maj. Gen. Joseph Dickman, the division commander, issued his famous order in French, "Nous resterons la" ("We're staying there!". The rest of the division moved into position along the Marne, and on July 15, took the brunt of what was to be the last German offensive of the war.
As units on either side of the division were driven back, men of the 30th and 38th Regiments held their positions, defeating the Germans' bid for victory.
This feat of arms, in which they stood their ground like a rock at the Marne, was called by Gen. John "Blackjack" Pershing "...one of the most brilliant pages in the annals of military history" and earned the 3rd Infantry Division it's nickname: "The Marne Division".
