10TH INFANTRY REGIMENT, US ARMY

Coat of arms (crest) of the 10th Infantry Regiment, US Army

Official blazon

The 10th Infantry Regiment is not authorized a Coat of Arms. As such, the 10th Infantry's badge appears on the organizational color. On 1920-11-24, the Secretary of War instructed the regimental badge be placed on the regimental color above the eagle.
Badge Description - A Roman numeral "X" Azure, superimposed on a Roman sword in scabbard palewise point down Or, overall a circular band Argent, fimbriated of the second,
bearing the motto "COURAGE AND FIDELITY" in chief and the date in Roman numerals "MDCCCLV" in base, both of the first.

Origin/meaning

The badge is self-explanatory. The motto is taken from the speech made by the first Colonel of the Regiment, E.B. Alexander, upon the occasion of the presentation of colors to the regiment.

It was approved 24 November 1920. ___________________________________________________________
