Shield: The shield is blue for Infantry. The symbol produces the effect of two crossed "8’s," which may be alluded to as canting heraldry. It also has the appearance of a propeller, indicating connection with aviation. The coat of arms was originally approved for the 88th Infantry Airborne Battalion on 17 December 1941. It was amended to correct the history on 23 January 1942. The insignia was redesignated for the 88th Infantry Regiment on 30 September 1942. It was rescinded on 10 February 1959.
