Retired Master Sgt. Gene Peeples, of Largo, Fla., poses for a photo before the reactivation ceremony of the 7th Infantry Division Oct. 10, 2012, at Watkins Parade Field, Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash. Peeples, who is the president of the 7th Infantry Division Association, served as combat medic with the 7th Medical Battalion, 7th Inf. Div., from 1952 to 1953 and, again, from 1956 to 1957. He served in the Korean War, and helped the medical battalion establish a hospital at Camp Casey, Korea. This is the second time Peeples has seen the division reactivate; the first reactivation ceremony he attended was at Fort Carson, Colo., in 1999.
