When this book reaches you and you and you, the men of the 33rd will be here and there-and "over there." Officers and men will have taken their places with different units to create new Divisions -- to form the nucleus of new fighting units. Some of the Commanding Officers and many officers of the staff and line and enlisted men will have taken up their new posts. But wherever they are they will carry on the great tradition of the 33rd Division -- the old Prairie Division that brought glory and fame to Illinois in every engagement in which the men of Illinois were engaged. The Editors and Publishers of the Army Press desire to express their appreciation to the Division Commander, Major General Samuel T. Lawton, the Chief of Staff, Colonel H. E. Thornton, the Division Historian, Lt. Colonel Julius Klein, and to every officer and enlisted man in the 33rd Division who has helped to make this permanent record of the 33rd possible. Without their help and guidance, and without the cooperation on research and editorial material by the Division Historical section, this book would not have been possible.
