Other North Carolina Units

From the Encyclopedia of North Carolina.

North Carolinians also served in the Fourth and Eighteenth Infantry Divisions.  Soldiers in the Fourth were the first Americans to enter Paris after liberation.  The Eighteenth liberated many German  concentration camps.

The Sixty-fifth General Hospital in England was sponsored by Duke University in Durham.
