Throughout history, the Soldiers of the 22nd Infantry Regiment have lived up to their official motto:








The 22nd Infantry camp at Warren, Arizona. At various times companies of the Regiment,
and eventually the entire regiment, was here during the period of April 19, 1916 to September 24, 1916.
This was during the years of the Regiment's Mexican Border Service, 1910-1917.

The purpose of this site is to provide a place for members of the 1st Battalion to post their photos,
stories and memories of their service with the 22nd Infantry.

We invite all who have served or are serving with the 1st Bn 22nd Inf to send us your pictures and thoughts
of your time with the 22nd, and we will post them on these pages. E-mail and regular mail addresses for submissions
can be found at the bottom of this page.

This is an ongoing project. Our ultimate aim is to detail the history of 1st Battalion.
As such, we consider ourselves to be historians. This is not a dues paying club; there are no membership fees.
All material here is presented solely for historical purposes. Depending upon the level of participation
and support from you, we can expand this site and make it a permanent testimony
to one of the US Army's finest Infantry Battalions.
