Soldiers from the 118th Infantry Regiment, 30th Infantry Division, SC National Guard, during the Carolina Maneuvers/1942

With the “triangularization” of National Guard units in 1942, after the start of the United States entry into World War II, the 118th would detach from the 30th Infantry Division and be assigned to security duty in Iceland. The 118th would also receive campaign credit for their service in Northern France and the Rhineland, after being staged in England throughout most of 1944 for preparation to battle German forces.
