The 7th Infantry Division hosted a Change of Command Ceremony where Maj. Gen. Willard M. Burleson assumed command of the 7th Infantry Division from Major General Thomas S. James, Jr. in July 2017.

The active duty component of the Division has also created a supurb and informative web site depicting the many activities and events of our modern-day Division. The link below will take you to that site.

We are a non-profit  Association for former members of the 7th Infantry Division who saw service during World Wars I or II, Korea, Panama, Desert Storm, Iraqi Freedom, Afghanistan or any other wartime or peacetime service.

The purpose of the Association is to preserve and strengthen the bonds of friendship and camaraderie among the members through reunions, meetings, publications and other social activities.
