Your listing for the 40th Infantry Division (M) indicates that it is a "likely" subordinate unit to I Corps. You are correct. HOWEVER, you indicate the 40th is the North Carolina Guard. WRONG! Try the California Army National Guard.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 11:32, 7 February 2004.

I may be mistaking, but I think that the I corps is currently in Northen Iraq, relieving the 101st Air Assaut division.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 09:31, 23 July 2004.

Isn't this the unit in M*A*S*H? Guess they made up the part about it being in Korea...Kuralyov 20:31, 3 Jan 2005 (UTC)

No, "eye core" was there, our unit history is just incomplete. See U.S. Eighth Army Korean War order of battle for instance. Stan 21:16, 3 Jan 2005 (UTC)

ACW connection[edit]

Someone just edited in:

The current I Corps is a different organization than the I Corps of the Union Army during the American Civil War.

If that is in fact true, we should delete the ACW portion of this article and just have a See Also. Can anyone confirm? Hal Jespersen 18:56, 16 September 2005 (UTC)

Prior to World War I, Corps were not the same sort of structure they were from World War I on. Before that time, they were NOT permanent units, but were organized for each conflict, and were numbered Ordinally for each Army. It was only from World War I that Corps were Constituted and Organized with a permanent structure, Lineage and honors. The one thing that is consistent between the earlier and latter Corps - the insignia used for the single digit corps. MOST of them took their insignia from their pre-WW=I versions.

1st Infantry Division[edit]

In this article, it says that the Big Red One is part of the I Corps, but in the Big Red One article and the V Corps article, it says that it is part of the V Corps. Which is it?—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 11:21, 3 April 2006.

Units are never permanently assigned to a Corps. During World War II, most units in multi-Corps theaters were assigned to multiple corps over the duration of the war.

I Corps (FWD) in Iraq?[edit]

Is there any evidence that I Corps (fwd) was in Iraq in 2004? I was in Iraq then, but not in Mosul, and never heard that they were there. III Corps had the corps mission then, so what did I Corps (fwd) do there? CsikosLo (talk) 13:06, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

GA Review[edit]

This review is transcluded from Talk:I Corps (United States)/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.

Ok, where to start? Only one source need be cited per paragraph unless controversial or multiple sources are used; I cleaned out a bunch of these redundant cites, but you need to finish the job.

  • Still got lots of these redundant cites, especially early in the article.
    • Removed all of the redudnant sources I can find. —Ed!(talk) 16:10, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Combine these and give a cite: In 1971, under Nixon's détente policy, the 7th Infantry Division was withdrawn, leaving the 2nd Infantry Division as the only US Army unit in Korea. I Corps remained in Korea as a two-division formation until until 1971 when I Corps Headquarters was reduced to zero strength. With growing confidence among Korean senior staff and American insistence on burden-sharing, a new command was formed to defend the western half of DMZ. By 1982, the Third Republic of Korea Army (TROKA) assumed command of the Republic of Korea Corps formerly under US First Corps Group.
    • Done. —Ed!(talk) 20:11, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Command element is very unfamiliar terminology to this Army vet, try using headquarters or subordinate command or something similar as I've done already for you in a few places.
    • Done. —Ed!(talk) 20:11, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Fix your bunched links. This is going to be a continual problem for you as you stack things up on the right side, you might as well start fixing them across all your articles.
    • Done. —Ed!(talk) 17:23, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Do a copyedit, there are still a number of typos present.
    • Copy-edit done. Are there any particular areas that still need it? —Ed!(talk) 20:19, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
      • There are still some, but I didn't note exactly where they were. Double-check everything that is underlined in red is a good start.
        • Checked. Red links are all topics which currently have no articles. —Ed!(talk) 16:10, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
          • I wasn't talking about red links, but rather the red underlines that show up when I'm editing if Firefox on my Mac thinks I've misspelled a world. Maybe nothing like this shows up on your computer, but it's kind of handy (although really easy to overlook). I've corrected this typo, but this is what I'm talking about: For the next nine months, the corps supervised training and large scale maneuvers for Amry divisions activating into the force.
  • The article "the" isn't necessary when referring to the corps with its number. The I Corps sounds odd, while I Corps reflects current usage.
    • I only did that when beginning a sentence. American style states that sentences can't begin with a number, and the "I," which stands for 1, falls under this constraint. —Ed!(talk) 17:23, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
      • That's one rule I've never heard of, but I'd bet that outside the military with all its numbered units, it's not one that comes up often. At any rate watch for capitalization of Corps without the I; without it it's not a proper noun and shouldn't be capitalized. I've cleaned-up those in the lead. I realize that your eyes have seen this so article so often that they're starting to glaze over, but this is the sort of stuff that will bite you in the ass if you want to submit this for A-class, which I rather expect you do.
        • OK. Gone through and taken care of both problems. —Ed!(talk) 16:10, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Be sure to link all the locations listed. Miyazaki isn't.
    • The dates I didn't link didn't have articles on wikipedia, and they weren't in any other existing article, so I assume they are not notable enough to merit their own pages. —Ed!(talk) 17:17, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
      • You know what they say about assumptions... What dates? I was talking about places like Miyazaki.
        • Myzaki has a link. Any other locations not linked I believe do not meet notability guidelines for articles. —Ed!(talk) 16:10, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Consolidate some of your paragraphs, those in the Korea section are often very short.
    • Done. —Ed!(talk) 17:17, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Be careful of Army press releases; they tend to use a lot of passive voice and often spin things to seem like they're doing stuff specially when it's really just normal business with a bit more focus than normal. Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 02:01, 7 August 2009 (UTC)
    • Done. —Ed!(talk) 20:19, 11 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Is this a quote from Marston: The next few years were a period during which the terms of the surrender were supervised and enforced; Japanese military installations and material were seized, troops were disarmed and discharged, and weapons of warfare disposed of. The duties of the occupation force included conversion of industry, repatriation of foreign nationals, and supervision of the complex features of all phases of Japanese government, economics, education, and industry. If so put it in quotes.
    • No. The principle ideas there are taken from Marston but it is not an exact quote because he listed a variety of other less important things. —Ed!(talk) 16:10, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Define CPV. It is Chinese People's Volunteers, Communist People's Volunteers, what?
    • Chinese People's Volunteers. It is now spelled out at first reference. —Ed!(talk) 16:10, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
  • 25th ID no longer has any troops at Ft. Lewis and 2nd ID has many 3 brigades there, but the division's HQ is in Korea. You might want to clarify that in the Organization section.
    • Specidfied. I've put the proper locations of each division's headquarters for total consistency. —Ed!(talk) 16:10, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
  • What day did WWI end, 10 November or 11 November?
    • Corrected. —Ed!(talk) 15:19, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Consolidate these two sentences: The Japanese attack stalled, allowing I Corps to mount an offensive. Once the threat of a Japanese invasion of Australia was abated, I Corps launched and offensive to push back the Japanese.
    • Done. —Ed!(talk) 15:19, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
  • And just how do you spell Eichelberger? Check for consistency.
    • Done. —Ed!(talk) 15:19, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
  • You sometimes forget to give a link to the campaign or battle that the corps was fighting in. St. Mihiel, Luzon both need such links as does the fighting in Korea after Operation Ripper.
    • Done. —Ed!(talk) 15:19, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
  • You might mention that 9th ID was Ft. Lewis's major tenant unit when the corps reactivated and how that division downsized before the post was selected for expansion in the early 90s. Your source is a little disingenuous about that whole sequence of events. Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 00:23, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
    • Done. —Ed!(talk) 15:19, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Disambiguate these links: Outposts at Bunker Hill, The Hook, Kelly, Old Baldy Hill, Nori, and Pork Chop Hill were defended in heavy fighting within I Corps' area of responsibility. Some of these have nothing to do with the Korean War. Otherwise everything looks good. Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 18:52, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
    • Done. —Ed!(talk) 00:50, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

I Corps (Fwd) No Longer Headquartered in DC[edit]

I Corps (Fwd) is now headquartered at Camp Zama, Japan as of June 2008 —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kenny.mishler (talkcontribs)

None of the refs of the article indicate any change in location. If you can provide a verifiable resource that indicates this, I would be happy to update it. —Ed!(talk) 17:06, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
Ed!, when these things come up, it might be worth considering checking news reports. This has been widely reported and was set in motion in 2007. There is now a reference embedded in the Camp Zama article. Buckshot06 (talk) 08:24, 17 November 2009 (UTC)

30th Infantry Division not in I Corps in WWII[edit]

Greetings. I'm brand-new to Wikipedia, so please forgive me if I violate any protocol. I will learn it.

At any rate, 30th Infantry Division (Old Hickory) was not under I Corps in the Pacific Theatre in WWII. 30th ID was in the European Theatre from June 1944 through the end of the war.

--CPLgrumpy (talk) 23:54, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

Perhaps it's worth noting that I Corps was at Ft Jackson early in the war, same time 30th was forming/training. I suppose I find it worth making a separate entry for subordinate divisions while I Corps was at Jackson.

How to pronounce I Corps?[edit]

I have always wondered how to pronounce "I Corps" and all the other corps as well, and in fact came here to learn it. Is it "Eye Corps"? "One Corps"? "First Corps"? I think it would be nice if this article said which was correct. (talk) 14:02, 15 October 2016 (UTC)
