High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Second United States Army was formed October 15, 1918 during World War I. It functioned as a training and administrative headquarters until being inactivated 15 April 1919. The Second United States Army was activated again and served as a training army for much of its existence until inactivation in 1966. Second Army's task during the First World War was to hold the line a short distance east of the Moselle River in France following the end of the Saint-Mihiel offensive along the Western Front. The army was also tasked with reinforcing units from the active-in-combat soldiers of the U.S. First Army. On 10 November, Second Army advanced on German positions, already in disorder and retreating. Word did not reach the units advancing until after eleven-hundred hours on 11 November, making it one of the last units to fight to the very conclusion of the war. On 15 April of the following year, Second Army was inactivated.
