WWII Photo Feature 32: 407th Raiders Football Team
This section features documents and photographs from our personal collection of WWII historical material. As time permits, new feature pages will be added with additional photographs and documents.

In 1945, the Headquarters of the U.S. 407th Infantry Regiment Headquarters issued a souvenir Thanksgiving Menu for the headquarters staff. At the time, the 407th Infantry Regiment was based in Coburg as part of the 102nd Infantry Division. The souvenir menu contained numerous photographs of the unit's men along with drawings hand-colored with watercolors.

The menu also included a photograph and lineup for the 407th Raiders football team, shown below.
