I am starting to receive a lot of photos to put on this site. Every photo that I receive I put on the page that the individual was assigned to. These are mostly photos of individuals. Other photos that may share a common interest with the Division in general I copied and put on the 40th Div. Photo page. I will publish each and every photo that I receive. The site changes just about everyday.
If anyone reading this is a former member of the 40th Inf Div and have some photos that they would like to see on this site, please image and I would be more than glad to publish them on the site.

SEARCHING FOR INFORMATION OF FORMER MEMBERS OF THE 40th INF DIV Sometimes I receive a photo from a relative asking for information on their relatives that are now deceased. The only thing they know is that he was in the 40th Div or one of the line Regiments. I made a page just for this purpose. Please check the page and see if you know one of them. The page can be accessed image
