1st Battalion 22nd Infantry

 

 

CAMPAIGNS

 

Silk streamers to reflect campaign participation were first authorized by the
Department of the Army in 1920. They are displayed on the Battalion's colors.
Embroidered on the streamers are the campaigns, battles or service for which
the Battalion has been recognized.

The colors of each streamer are the colors of the campaign or service medal
for that specific conflict or operation.

The following streamers are for those campaigns
in which 1st Battalion 22nd Infantry has participated.

 

Note: the official Army lineage of the 22nd US Infantry Regiment begins with the re-establishment
of the Regiment in 1866. However, the Regiment was originally formed in 1812, and existed
until 1815. From 1815 until 1866 there was no 22nd US Infantry Regiment.

The 1st Battalion website presents all history and honors of that original 22nd US Regiment
in the hopes that one day the Army will recognize it as part of the true lineage
of today's Regiment, to which that original 22nd Infantry is inevitably and undeniably linked.

Note: In more recent times the Army has dis-continued the authorization
of some of the streamers listed above. However, those streamers were awarded to the 22nd Infantry,
and flown from the Regimental and Battalion Colors for at least 60 or more years.

The U.S. Army Center of Military History has the following comment
on the above streamers:

"Individual units are sometimes authorized additional streamers to reflect war service in engagements
outside the limitations of the 187 (authorized) campaigns."
