The Styron Library is dedicated to Major General James Clyde Styron. He entered the United States Military Academy (West Point) and graduated with the class of 1918, which graduated early to join the effort in the Great War (World War I). He was commissioned Second Lieutenant in Coast Artillery with date of rank November 1, 1918. During World War II, he participated in the Sicily (1943) and Italian (1943) Campaigns and took part in the Anzio Beach head (1944). On October 30, 1946 he was promoted to the rank of Major General. He assumed command of the 45th Division and reorganized the Guard. In June 1950 South Korea was invaded by North Korea. This action led to the second federal mobilization of the 45th Infantry Division. Major General Styron commanded the Thunderbirds, who were one of only two National Guard divisions to see combat in the Korean War.
