1st Battalion 22nd Infantry


Preserving the history of the 22nd US Infantry


April, 2005

Under the direction of the 1st Battalion Commander, LTC Steve Russell,
and through the efforts of the Battalion Staff, and members of 1st Battalion,
the history of the 22nd Infantry is being preserved for future generations of Regulars.
In the Regimental Room of the Battalion at Fort Hood, Company Guidons, Campaign and Award Streamers,
and display cases containing artifacts of the 22nd Infantry throughout its service
stand as a testament to the distinguished history of the Regiment.

Using Battalion funds, donations from active duty personnel and others,
currently serving Regulars labored to make a presentation to honor their fellow soldiers,
both past and present, and by their accomplishments have once again shown that our motto is


Deeds, Not Words !
