The 7th Infantry Division is an active duty infantry division of the United States Army based at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. The 7th Infantry Division has seen continuous combat action ever since our activation during World War I in 1917. From Europe, to our own Aleutian Islands, the Pacific, Japan, Korea, and Afghanistan, the Bayonet Division boasts of proud history of answering the call on behalf of our nation.
We enable and sustain the combat readiness of two Stryker brigade combat teams and a combat aviation brigade. Strategically, we participate in several yearly exercises and operations in support of U.S. Army Pacific and the Indo-Pacific region designed to build capability and capacity in our allies and partners.
In an era of renewed Great Power Competition, our nation has seen a resurgence of potential threats all around the world. Specific to our area of operations – the Indo-Pacific region – our role in maintaining, certifying, exercising, and deploying combat ready forces on behalf of the United States as part of the joint force has never been more crucial. We are ready to fight and win!
