"Men who have offered their lives for their country know that patriotism is not fear of something;
it is the love of something."

Adlai Stevenson-1952 speech to American Legion

I dedicate these pages to the memory of my Dad,
Bill Heller (1910-1972),
and the brave men and women,
who sacrificed so much for our freedom.

15th Infantry Regiment

It is with pride that the men of the 3rd Infantry Division point to their record of combat, of campaigns, of landings, and of victories. The route from Casablanca to Berchtesgaden is strewn with the wreckage of the shattered Wehrmacht. Never did the 3rd Infantry Division falter, or fall back in its thirty months of combat. All of this is indeed glorious, and in Army language can be said  to be, " keeping with the highest traditions of the service."*
