U.S. Army

Happy Birthday to our U.S. Army!

This year, the United States Army pays tribute to 245 years of dedicated service to our Nation.

While it is fitting that we pause to recognize the achievements and contributions of our Soldiers and their Families, Army Civilians, Veterans, and retirees, we acknowledge that this Army Birthday will take place during a profoundly challenging time for America. Still, whatever challenge we face as a nation, the U.S. Army always answers the call to serve and defend. Our history of coming together to serve our communities with honor is part of the enduring fabric of America’s legacy.

Army Soldiers and Civilians embody the Army Values of Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage and are committed to the mission.

We thank our Soldiers and their families, Army Civilians, Veterans, and retirees for their extraordinary service and steadfast determination.

Thank you to Roger Long, '89, for writing the following for us. Be sure to visit The Citadel Memorial Europe at facebook.com/TheCitadelMemorialEurope.

"Today, seventy-six years ago, the liberation of Western Europe commenced with the Normandy landings. Many Citadel Men took a direct part in the landings on June 6, D-Day. Others came ashore in the following days. Charles May Forrest, Jr., ’45, was one of these men. Serving in Company I, 47th Infantry Regiment, 9th Infantry Division, PFC Forrest came ashore at Utah Beach on D + 4, June 10th, 1944.

Forrest, a native of Saluda, South Carolina, entered The Citadel in September, 1941, and was a member of Cadet Company A his freshman and sophomore years. After completing the work of the sophomore class, Charlie Forrest went on active military duty and went through basic training with the 31st infantry training battalion at Camp Croft, Spartanburg.

After basic training, Forrest was sent to Camp Meade, Maryland, in November 1943, and then to Camp Miles Standish, Massachusetts, prior to embarking for England. After landing at Liverpool, England, he was assigned to Company I, 3rd Battalion, 47th Infantry Regiment, 9th Infantry Division. The 9th ID was a veteran outfit which had seen action in North Africa and Sicily. Forrest would participate in the Normandy invasion, the battles of Northern France and the Rhine River, being twice wounded, on June 20 and on November 21, 1944.

On June 10th, D + 4, the 9th ID went ashore on Utah Beach. In an interview in the Summer 1989 Alumni News, Forrest described the experience, 'We waded ashore. We were wet and the heavy gear made it hard to walk. Then we were ordered to ‘dig in’ and ‘move up’ – ‘dig in’ and ‘move up’. Dead soldiers lay on the beach, and we scrambled around them while ducking 88mm shells that burst overhead.

After about 10 or 11 days fighting day and night, we had moved away from the beach into the hedgerows; that was when a shell burst right over us [me and my buddy, James Ferrell]. We dived for the same trench, but not in time. We were both hit by shrapnel. I called for a medic, as he ran toward us, he was blown to bits. Another medic made it to us and radioed for help.

After Jim was flown out, I was taken to a field hospital where a Dr. Lane operated on my leg. From there I was moved to Binghamton.' The Greenville News reported on July 14, Forrest’s parent had received a letter from him saying he was in an English hospital recovering from his wounds.

The combat action of the 9th ID is described in detail in the US Army Center of Military History’s book 'Utah Beach to Cherbourg 6 – 27 June'. In brief, from Utah Beach, the division made its way inland to link up with the 82nd Airborne Division at St. Mere Église. Their task together was to clear the east bank of the Douve river as far north as Ste. Colombe. On 15 June, the division, as part of VII Corps, started the drive to cut the Cotentin Peninsula. The 9th ID would achieve the corps’ western most objective of Saint-Lo-d’Ourville on June 19, effectively cutting the peninsula and sealing off any escape of German units trapped to the north.

VII Corps then turned north for the drive on Cherbourg. On Jun 20, the 9th ID encountered strong German resistance, and their push came to a halt. The third battalion of the 47th IR was stopped 1,300 yards short of its objective, the main highway intersection near Branville-Hague.

After his recovery, Forrest rejoined his unit in France. In October and November, the 9th Infantry Division fought in the Huertgen Forest area of Germany. On November 21, Sergeant Forrest was wounded for a second time, Company I and the third battalion, 47th Infantry Regiment were attached to the 16th Infantry Regiment, 1st Infantry Division in the area of Hamich. According the the 16th IR’s after action report, 3/47th IR had been 'in a defensive position and received heavy artillery and mortar fire.'

Returning to the Citadel as a veteran student March 25, 1946, Mr. Forrest completed the academic requirements for graduation in six quarters. He was awarded his diploma and the degree of Bachelor of Science in commerce on September 13, 1947. Two weeks later, Forrest started at The Citadel as an instructor in business administration, teaching accounting, with the rank of second lieutenant in the South Carolina Unorganized Militia.

He later became associated with Rice Business College in Charleston, and then in 1951, he and his wife, Hester, moved their family to Anderson, South Carolina, when he became director of Carolina College of Commerce, later Forrest College.

In May 1953, Mr. Forrest was elected to the board of directors of the Association of Citadel Men, the predecessor of the Citadel Alumni Association. Mr. Forrest was active in the alumni association for many years. Richard H. Forrest, one of four children, graduated from The Citadel in 1981. Mr. Forrest died in 2008."

On today, the 76th anniversary, Mr. Forest represents, for us, all of our Alumni who fought on D-Day and in the Normandy Invasion and lived to tell the tale. And as always we remember those who were killed during this heroic effort.

Please comment below to join us in honoring and remembering Citadel Alumni who served during the D-Day Invasion.
