The 2nd Division was one of a kind. It was the only American Division that had a Brigade of Marines —
and the only Division formed in France.
 
"Owing to its world-wide reputation for skill and valor, the Second Division was selected by the Commander-in-chief of the Allied Armies as his special reserve, and has been held in readiness to strike a swift and powerful blow at the vital point of the enemy's lines. The hour to move forward has now come, and I am confident our division will pierce the enemy's line, and once more gloriously defeat the Hun."
