In a world of technology we still require our Soldiers to have the skill to navigate the land with only a map, compass and protractor. The importance of this appears when technology fails or is disrupted by the environment in which we operate. Land navigation allows Soldiers to understand the terrain first hand and plan operations effectively based on that knowledge. If all else fails, our Soldiers must be confident in finding their way to the objective with only their competence and mental fortitude.

Recently we said farewell to two proven NCOs, SFC Hairom Abraham and SFC Kevin Martin. Our NCOs are the backbone of our Army that see the job though and take care of our warriors. Both have served with distinction as Platoon Sergeants in the Chosin Battalion and we wish them luck at their next assignment.

#DidYouKnow? The 32d Infantry Regiment has its own song, "32d Let's Go." While we have the lyrics the tune has been lost to time. Veterans of "The Queen's Own," if you know the tune we need your help. Be the first to submit a recording of yourself singing "32d Let's Go" to its original tune and we'll send a unit print in appreciation. We won't mind if it's a bit off key!

32D LET'S GO

Oh my pack is getting heavy
And my rifle weighs a ton
And the mud is getting deeper
And the march has just begun
But I'm staying with it buddy
And I'll be there when it's done
For I hear the gun' a-goin'
And I'll [fight on] 'till we won

CHORUS

Let's go... Let's go...
We are the thirty-second infantry!
Let's go... Let's go...
Always forward and follow me!
You'll be glad you brought your weapon,
And you'll love your 'ole tin hat
For there's merry hell a-poppin' there
Where we will soon be at.
Let's go... Let's go...
We are the thirty-second infantry!

It is rain and mud most all the time
To make the rookies blue,
But the good 'ole rollin' kitchens
Thank gawd are still with us too.
And when we get to our billets,
We'll have biscuits with our stew,
And when comes the early morning
There'll be dirty work to do.

Recent Chosin Soldier Highlights!

We said farewell to our Intelligence NCOIC SSG Davis and her family. She has deployed to Afghanistan and Africa with 1-32 IN and we wish her luck at her next assignment!

We also promoted Nicholas Bonelli to the rank of SSG. With his new rank comes the added responsibilities of a Squad Leader in the Infantry. We are certain that he will continue to be successful.

#OnThisDayInHistory #DidYouKnow The Ethiopian Kagnew Infantry Battalion was attached to the 32d Infantry Regiment in May, 1951. The Kagnews were a special volunteer Battalion of Emperor Haile Selassie's Imperial Guard. Immediately after landing they demonstrated their fighting ability and courage. During Operation Cleaver, the KAGNEW distinguished themselves while attacking objectives on Hills 700 and 602. Fighting with bayonets and grenades, they secured their objectives after a bitter hand to hand battle.

(See full United Nations Command post below!)

Recently, in the interest of fighting regional conflicts and maintaining relations with African Nations, 1-32 IN completed missions for the United States Africa Command in countries such as Djibouti, Cameroon, Ghana, Somalia, Zambia and Malawi.

🇪🇹 On May 7, 1951, the Ethiopian Kagnew Infantry Battalion arrived in Busan. The Battalion was Ethiopia’s elite troops and they trained at home in the mountains for eight months before they arrived in Korea. When they arrived they were given U.S. equipment and eight weeks training on American weapons and tactics. After their training they were attached to the 7th U.S. Infantry Division, 32nd Infantry Regiment. Ethiopian troops departed Korea in January 1965. The Ethiopian Battalion suffered 657 casualties which included 121 killed in action and 536 wounded in action. UNC thanks you for your service!

The Silent Ranks...

I wear no uniforms, no blues or Army greens.
But I am in the military in the ranks rarely seen.
I have no rank upon my shoulders, salutes I do not give. But the military world is the place where I live.
I’m not in the chain of command, orders I do not get.
But my spouse is the one who does, this I can not forget.
I’m not the one who fires the weapon, who puts my life on the line. But my job is just as tough, I’m the one that’s left behind.
My spouse is a patriot, a brave and prideful soldier, and the call to serve our country not all can understand.
Behind the lines I see the things needed to keep this country free. My spouse makes the sacrifice, but so do our kids and me.
I love the person I married, soldiering is their life.
But I stand among the silent ranks known as the Military Spouse.

It’s official! The U.S. Army Center of Military History has approved the traditional designation “The Queen’s Own” for the 32d Infantry Regiment.

The 32d Infantry Regiment was organized on 7 August 1916 in the Territory of Hawaiʻi. The Regiment adopted the title “The Queen’s Own” in honor of Queen Liliʻuokalani, the last reigning monarch of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi. It reminds us all not only on our origins but of how a disciplined unit was forged, executing the basics with utmost perfection. When Queen Liliʻuokalani witnessed the 32d Infantry Regiment during pass and review, she was impressed with their military bearing, professionalism, and expertise. Today, 1-32 IN Soldiers carry this namesake as a reminder to always execute the basics perfectly.

Are you ready for more responsibility? These Soldiers have just earned the rank of Captain. This is a big moment for many officers as they are expected to be prepared to command their fellow service members and make decisions that have significant impacts on their team. Fortunately for them, our army is outfitted with trustworthy leaders, rank not included, with the right values to assist our commanders with their great responsibility and be there to work in the best interest of the team.

Congratulations to CPT Phillips and CPT Tucker on their promotion!

General information

The 32nd Infantry Regiment was first organized on 7 August 1916, on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. At its activation, it was known as “The Queen’s Own” Regiment, a title bestowed by the last queen of Hawaii, Queen Liliuokalani. During World War I, units of the Regiment were used to escort German prisoners being transferred to the United States from Hawaii. On 20 July 1918, the 32nd was transferred to Camp Kearny, California, where it eventually demobilized in 1919. Since 1939, the battalion has had a long history. It was involved in multiple Pacific campaigns in Attu, Kwajalein, Leyte, and Okinawa. On 16 September 1950, the 32nd Infantry Regiment set foot on Korean soil, in the invasion of Inchon. In the cold morning hours of the 25th, the Regiment crossed the Han River under intense enemy fire and captured key terrain that allowed the capture of the surrounding heights overlooking and dominating the city, allowing Marine elements to resume their advance. After the 32nd was relieved, their next mission was to lad at Iwon and advance to the Korean-Manchurian border. Landing at Iwon on the 29th, the 32nd moved quickly northward with the 1st Battalion on the east coast of the Chosin Reservoir. Information the three enemy divisions had arrived at Yudam-ni on 20 November 1950 reached intelligence personnel via prisoners of war. The 1st Battalion on the east coast of the Chosin Reservoir was with elements of the 31st Infantry and the 1st Marines, who were cut off by the Chinese Communist (CCF). Only after long and bloody fighting did these forces work their way south to Koto-ri, and then to the Hungman perimeter. LTC Don C. Faith, 1st Battalion Commander, distinguished himself in this action, and was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor. In 1978, the 32nd Infantry Regiment was stood down as part of President Carter’s effort to withdraw from Korea. Just prior to that, Colin Powell and Steven Silvasy served as battalion commanders while on their way to becoming general officers later on. It was reactivated on 15 February 1996 as part of the 10th Mountain Division, Fort Drum, New York. In May 2002, the battalion returned from a six-month rotation in Kosovo as part of Task Force Falcon. The deployment was part of Operation Joint Guardian. In August 2003, the battalion deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom for a thirteen month combat tour. Company A was based out of FOB Volturno near Fallujah while companies B and C built Forward Operating Base (FOB) Chosin at an Iskandiriyah power plant with 82nd Airborne Sappers while conducting combat operations. Later they would move to FOB Manhattan, located between Ramadi and Fallujah. By the time they were finished, 1/32 was the most efficient and successful unit in regards to securing weapons caches, eliminating insurgents, gather intelligence, and killing or capturing Al Qaeda members during combat operations in Iraq. In March 2006, Task Force (TF) Chosin deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom for a fifteen month combat tour. TF Chosin was in the Korengal Valley, along the Peche River, Salerno, around Nangalam, and in Nuristan Province, specifically Bella and Aranas. In 2009, 1st Battalion, 32nd Infantry Regiment deployed to Kunar Province, Afghanistan, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and as part of the International Security Assistance Force. The Regiment supported the 1st Infantry Division and later the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division by conducting operations in Kunar Province and responding to enemy movement and activity in Nuristan Province. Battle Company deployed with 3-71 CAV, operating in Logar Province. During this deployment, 1-32 received a Valorous Unit citation for its actions in Barge Matal. During Operation Enduring Freedom XI-XII, 1-32 Infantry, “Chosin,” took part in combat operations to defeat anti-coalition forces operating in the Zharay District of Kandahar Province. The Battalion resided at FOB Howz-E-Madad, relieving the 2nd Battalion, 502nd Parachute Infantry Regiment; Task Force “Strike Force” of the 101st Airborne Division. Chosin operated in the multiple villages that encompassed the Zharay District which included, but was not limited to, Nalgham, Sangsar, Kotizi, Mirwalian, Haji Wazir, Marwali, Saib Jan, Diwar, Janon, Khanon, Zarifkhel, Buluchan, and Zhari Dasht. Along with its primary mission of securing the district and training subsequent local national forces, Chosin was the main effort in Operation “To The River,” pushing the insurgents to and past the Arghandab River, through its infamous “Steel Lion Operations,” reaching and securing the Taliban headquarters, a significant and emotional event for all Chosin soldiers. Among its many achievements, Chosin created the Afghanistan Local Police Program, which was recognized as a step forward for the Afghan people in sustaining a local force, and was adopted across the 3rd BCT, 10th Mountain Division for long term security. 1-32 Infantry also reopened the Howz-E-Madad School, an accomplishment that gained international recognition. 1-32 Infantry was relieved by the 2nd Battalion, 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, “Task Force 2 Fury,” a contingent of the 82nd Airborne Division. The Battalion returned to Fort Drum in March of 2012.
