Selection from History of the Thirty-Seventh Division:

The 37th Division was called into service on October 16, 1940, under the command of General Beightler. Ordered to Camp Shelby, the division started the long, arduous task of building a strong combat force. A few months later, the first selectees arrived to receive their training under provisions of the Selective Service Act.

With their basic training completed, the Ohio troops were ready for field work, and in June, 1941, moved to Louisiana for four weeks of intensive maneuvers. In August and September the 37th Division joined other units of the Third Army in the most extensive peacetime maneuvers in our country's history to battle over the sometimes hot-and-dry, sometimes wet-and-swampy stretches of Louisiana and Texas. Concerning the soldiers of the 37th Division, General Beightler has said: "I am proud of the men of my command for the splendid job they have done. They have worked hard, oftentimes under exceedingly difficult conditions, to achieve their fine records. They can take it."
