3rd Armored Division
PriorService is proud to offer a large selection of items for the 3rd Armored Division. The famed “Spearhead” division was formed in 1941 and saw combat in World War II and the Persian Gulf War. The division was activated in April 1941 in preparation of possible US involvement in World War II. The division was moved to England in 1943 and first saw combat in France in June 1944. The division fought in the tough, slow moving Normandy campaign. After the defeat of the German Seventh Army in the Falaise Gap, the 3rd Armored Division helped lead Allied armor units through France and into Belgium. The 3rd Armored Division was one of the first to reach Germany and fought in several key battles including the Battle of Hurtgen Forest and Battle of the Bulge. The division served on the line until the German surrender in May 1945. The division returned to the United States for about 10 after the war before being sent back to Cold War Germany in 1955. The division was stationed on the front lines of the Cold War for over 30 years. In 1991 the division deployed to Saudi Arabia with the powerful 7th Corps to first protect Saudi Arabia and then oust Iraqi forces from Kuwait. The division participated in the Operation Desert Storm and helped free Kuwait and Iraqi forces. Our selection of items for the 3rd Armored Division includes shirts, baseball caps, patches, decals, lapel pins, challenge coins and more.
