Brigadier General Andrew Christian Tychsen, who had served with the 100th since the day of its activation as commander of the 399th Infantry and as Assistant Division Commander since January 1945, assumed command on 22 September, when Major General Burress moved up to command the VI Corps. Over the next four months, the soldiers who had borne the colors through six months of victorious combat in Europe gradually rotated home, and finally, on 11 January 1946, the 100th Infantry Division was officially inactivated. General Tychsen, who had commanded the 100th's 399th Infantry Regiment from its activation and served as the Assistant Division Commander since January 1945, furled the colors when the 100th Infantry Division was inactivated
