Soldiers of the 90TH Infantry Division, made up of young men from Texas and Oklahoma, wore a “T-O” patch on their shoulders to signify their Texas-Oklahoma connection. During the war when replacements from other states became a part of the 90TH Division, words to explain the “T-O” changed to “Tough ‘Ombres.” Their combat activities included landing on Utah Beach in Normandy on D-Day, and advancing across Europe as far as Czechoslovakia by war’s end.
