Topic: How the term Devil Dog came into being.


This well known term came into being during WW1. the name was given after the battle of belleau wood. the name was given to them from the germans because of our unwillingness to retreat. they wood shell them and blast them, but they never stoped the attck untill they were either or the position or positions were taken.

The term that the germans used is TEUFELHUNDE!!!!!
DEVIL DOGS RULE!!!!!
