Since the days of the old frontier, North Dakotans have exemplified the traditions of honor and service to our country by engaging in our nations wars time and time again throughout the history of Amer{ca. At no point has this service been more apparent than in the actions of the 164th Infantry Regiment during WWII. This North Dakota Na- tional Guard Regiment was activated into federal service during the early days of that great conflict. Arriving in Guadalcanal on the 13th . of October 19z 2 they reinforced the 1 st Marine Division becoming the first US Army unit to engage in offensive action during WWII. One of the most harrowing engagements was fought by the Regiment in its defense of Henderson Airfield. Between October 24 and the 27th the 164th repelled a repeated enemy attack on their positions in defense of the field. In an excerpt from Col. Samuel Baglien from the 27th of October it states that. "from midnight to dawn the enemy again hurled it strength at our third battalion and right flank of our second battal- ion lines, but each thrust was repulsed with heavy losses to the ene- my. Over 1700 enemy dead in front of our line alone and probably many more back further in the jungle". Casualties within the 164th Regiment were fewer but still numbered in the hundreds. This testimony is a stark reminder of the sacrifices that our brave' young soldiers and airmen face when called upon to go overseas to serve their country. Today the North Dakota National Guard remains ready for mobilization worldwide. More than 4000 Soldiers and 2400 Air- men have been deployed in support of the Global War on Terror. For every 10,000 citizens in North Dakota, 65 serve in the North Dakota National Guard, a rate that is four times the national average. This new generation can only hope to carry on this excellent tradition of self- less service that has been instilled the hearts of North Dakotans for decades. We must never forget to do all we can to give back to these brave men and women from all generations in an ¢ way that we can.
