The 24th Infantry Division Association

Founded August 1945 on a Philippine Island beach


Membership in the 24th Infantry Division Association

There are about 2,100 members of the 24th IDA; they come from all states and a couple of foreign countries. Our WWII members are dwindling significantly. And our Korean War era members are beginning to as well. We are anxious to have all you Taro Leafers who served after 1956 anywhere to join with the Association.

As a member you will receive the Taro Leaf magazine, where you will read about the experiences of some of our members, as well as be able to submit your own articles. You will be informed of events and reunions and perhaps you may contact friends that you lost track of over the years.

You will be able to participate in a wide range of reunions, from Association to numerous mini reunions throughout the U.S.

And you will have access to this new website, which enables us to tell the entire world about our great 24th Division.

But most of all, your membership will assure that the 24th will survive and will sustain the spirit and pride of the Division.

Annual Dues are only $40.00 per year and are renewable one year from the date of joining; Life Membership is also available for $300.00, payable in one sum or in 5 yearly payments of $60.00 each.

There are five membership classes:  Active, Associate, Affiliate, Life, and Honorary. Please click HERE for more detail on the eligibility requirements of each.
