In American military history, the 25th Infantry Division (nicknamed 'Tropic Lightning') is a large military unit associated with operations in the Asia-Pacific region. It was activated on October 1, 1941 in Hawaii, and was formed using troops from the Hawaiian Division, a pre-war 'square division' (having four regiments of infantry), which had been reorganized and redesignated as the 24th Infantry Division. These steps were part of the on-going mobilization and buildup in Army strength in anticipation of the United States entry into World War II that resulted in the development of the more flexible 'triangle division' of three regiments.
