Does anyone have any info on the US, 331 Infantry Regiment, 83 Divison? I am looking for general info: Where they were based in US. When, where and if they saw action in WWI. Anything will help.

Thanks,
David.

Hi David,
Here is a link to a WWII group that does the 83rd ID. There unit history page goes into details about the units formation during WWI. The unit was originally from Ohio and if you look at their patch, it is made up of the letters from Ohio overlayed on each other.

BTW, I think there are one or two guys in the GWA (PPCLI I think) who are also part of the WWII 83rd group. They could probably tell you more.
