Welcome to the 10th Mountain Division Descendants, Inc. website. The 10th Mountain Division Descendants exists to preserve and enhance the legacy of the WWII 10th Mountain Division and 10th Mountain Division (LI) for future generations.
If you are interested in helping to preserve the legacy of the 10th Mountain Division, please join our organization to help us accomplish this goal.
A TV series has been proposed for development in Italy and has the support of the Tenth Mountain Division Foundation. This is an opportunity for all of us to provide support to a project that will further the story of the 10th Mountain Division. For those not familiar with this project by our friends in Italy, please visit the Tenth Mountain Division Foundation page by clicking here.
The annual Memorial Day ceremony at Tennessee Pass near Camp Hale is on schedule for this year. For details click here.

Italia 1945- 2022 Trip Update
Unfortunately, the decision has been made by the Italy Trip Committee to cancel the 2022 Return to Italy Trip and postpone it until next year. It was not an easy decision to make but in the best interest of the safety for all travelers and for maintaining the integrity of the trip it is prudent that we wait until next year.
We have been avidly monitoring the COVID situation in Europe, even adding a medical consultant to our team to assist with decision making. You should know that each of the four countries included in our itinerary had independent and varying COVID related protocols regarding testing, masking and quarantining, thus adding to the challenge of creating a minimally “risk free” trip. However, even if we took all the necessary and precautionary safety measures it still could not guarantee COVID infection(s) from occurring and possibly jeopardizing the trip itself.
InterTrav will be contacting travelers regarding their deposit. Please wait until hearing from them before calling with questions about your deposit.
Our friends in Italy, while disappointed, understand the necessity of this decision but look forward to our return in 2023!
Thank you for your understanding! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Val Rios at email@example.com. Updates regarding the Italy trip for next year will be posted on our 10th Mountain Division Descendant web site.
