The division traveled to France in July and August 1918, where it was under the command of Major General William R. Smith. The Division successfully participated in the Meuse-Argonne offensive in October 4-28, 1918. It returned to the United States between February and June 1919 and its sub-units were demobilized at Camp Bowie, Fort Worth, Texas at various times between March and June 1919. The division's veterans held reunions at Fort Worth, Texas, in 1933 and 1934.
