Information about the US Army Infantry and how the modern soldier trains to accomplish the skills of the foot soldier. The term infantry originates from the Latin word “infantem”. This word is used to describe a group of soldiers on foot rather than horseback. Soldiers were specifically trained for the role of fighting on foot and came in three main categories. These are light infantry, medium and heavy infantry. In some cases Military Rings would indicate which infantry brigade they belonged to.
Origins of the US Army Infantry
The US Infantry is the oldest branch of the Military. It goes back to 1775 when ten companies of riflemen were authorized by the Continental Congress. The Infantry insignia is comprised of two gold color crossed muskets and is very distinctive.
The US Army Infantryman is a highly trained specialist.
Today the infantryman has evolved into a highly trained specialist. He has a high level of personal discipline and overall combat effectiveness. The equipment the infantryman carries has also evolved along with technology and tactics in general. This equipment includes the latest in firearm technology, protective armor, survival gear, and specialist mission specific equipment.
