Origin/meaning

Shield: The shield is red for Artillery, the parent organization being shown by its crest placed on the canton. The 38th Infantry earned the sobriquet of “The Rock of the Marne” and this regiment is therefore entitled to the motto “The Rock’s Support,” and it is shown by the two cannons supporting a rock. Crest: The crest symbolizes the honorable loss and recapture of its guns.

The coat of arms was originally approved for the 10th Field Artillery Regiment on 6 June 1921. It was amended to include history on 13 September 1923. The insignia was redesignated for the 10th Field Artillery Battalion on 15 December 1942. It was again redesignated for the 10th Artillery Regiment on 22 January 1958. The coat of arms was redesignated for the 10th Field Artillery Regiment on 2 December 1971.
