During its Long career the 113th has worn a number of different titles beginning Way Back in 1915 As the first Squadron first Iowa a while with the 35th infantry division. Then follows the usual series of place names that even some of the members of the outfit Are Likely to have forgotten by now and that most civilians never heard of in the first place Percy be Mas nil Herman Vire Gath Emo Mortain do front ver Neuil Albert canal and finally to a place East of the Elbe River in Germany.

Crushing blow for both sides. A what this town needs we re convinced since seeing a Harvey Quot is not a Council manager it Lan nor a commission plan nor an unlimited source of income. This town needs some tall rabbits and some people like Elwood p. Dowd. So Earnest is everyone to outlaw sin in this state that kids Are even getting afraid to shoot marbles for fun.

A woman in a grocery store at the time of the fire in the Isu building near the Bridge last saturday was heard to comment a the russians have been she was kidding of course.

After world War i in 1921the first Iowa cavalry was reorganized and the first Squadron became the 113th cavalry. The outfit was called to Active duty again on the 13th of january 1941, half of it horse cavalry and the other half mechanized and after training at Camps Bowie and Hood in Texas and Camps Polk and Livingstone in Louisiana it went overseas again and found itself attached to Iii armoured corps later Xix corp undergoing in Early 1944 a slight change from 113th cavalry mechanized to 113th cavalry group mechanized. When it came Home after the War and was inactivated october 1945it was still the 113th cavalry. Re activated october 7, 1947 As the 113th mechanized cavalry reconnaissance Squadron the outfit finally no Walt its most recent changeover a year and a half later. We think that s accurate but Well make no claims to perfection. With As Many different monikers As the 113th has had we d be foolish to take the risk especially since there Are so Many graduates of the organization around to refute us. The unit s combat history for a like reason is difficult to record with any certainty. Of finally the 113th took part in actions in Normandy Northern France Belgium Holland and Germany but official statements regarding an outfit s activity cover everything but an interpretation of what it was like to have been there. For example the a Iowa guardsman Quot Magazine carried a Story on the 113th a couple of years ago that included this item a in the first engagement in Normandy the red horses another handle Cut their Teeth on one of Hitler s Best the 17th is Panzer Grenadier division. In this action they won the commendation of maj. Gen. Charles h. Corlett Xix corps it sounds easy. After running into a hedgerow or two the cavalry dismounted and performed As infantry for captured 21,699 prisoners among other things. The unit won three commendations from generals under whom it served and picked up enough medals to overload three heroes of the soviet Union included among which were 2 distinguished service crosses a legion of Merit 96 Silver stars and As the Iowa guardsman puts it a Many the a Many others takes in the purple hearts of which the outfit accumulated a truckload. The unit has a different name now and most of the old timers Are gone. But a number of them Are still around having made the transition from cavalry to aaa without too much trouble. It. Col. Harold s. Brunsell who commands the 113th, started As an enlisted Man with essentially the same outfit almost Twenty years ago. Cut to the Bone that s of the 113tk�?up to the this writing.
