With that said, please keep all wall posts clean and Family friendly! DEEDS NOT WORDS!! Triple Deuce Unit History: Two regiments have held the designation 22nd Infantry since 1812. The original 22nd Infantry regiment was officially constituted on 26 June 1812. General Winfield Scott was responsible for outfitting these new troops, but due to a shortage of blue cloth, he was forced to substitute a rough, gray material for his riflemen. On 5 July 1814, the regiment entered into a battle with a superior British force near the town of Chippewa, Canada. The British general, Sir Jonathan Rialls saw the gray clad regiment in the center and the right of the American battle line. Rialls is said to have remarked, “Today should be an easy day. Those men are nothing but the buffalo militia.” The regiment started its final charge only fifty meters from the British when the British broke and left the battlefield. Rialls’ adjutant asked the general if he was sure that the gray clad soldiers were militia, general Rialls replied, “Those are regulars by God.” General Rialls’ statement of praise has become the official motto of the 22nd Infantry Regiment. In honor of the first regular formation to defeat a superior British force, the United States Military Academy at West Point adopted a gray uniform based on the design worn by the 22nd Infantry. This uniform is still the official dress uniform of the United States Military Academy. The rebirth of the 22nd Infantry Regiment occurred when the regiment was reconstituted on 21 September 1866. For the next 32 years, the unit saw action at the Little Big Horn campaign, Pine Ridge, and the North Dakota and Montana campaigns. In addition, the regiment fought the Indians in Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Idaho. The sinking of the USS Maine in Havana harbor, Cuba in 1898 gave the 22nd Infantry a new mission. The 22nd had the distinction of being the first American unit to land on Cuban soil. During the attack on Seboney, the regiment captured the first Spanish colors to be captured in the war. Losses to the regiment were heavy; approximately 65 percent of the men and 85 percent of the officers, to include the regimental commander, did not return. In 1899, the 22nd Infantry Regiment was ordered to the Philippines to quell the insurrection. The regiment was given the task of following the insurgent Aguinaldo and finishing him. With limited supplies, the regiment made one of the most arduous and famous foot marches ever undertaken by the United States Army. Their mission was carried out successfully and for their gallant actions in the Cuban and Philippine campaigns, two members of the regiment were awarded the Medal of Honor. in 1906, the regiment returned to the United States where it spent five years “under the canvas,” along the Mexican border, the longest period of continuous field time by any regiment in American history. The 22nd Infantry was one of the first units to hit the Normandy coast in the Second World War, landing at the beach at 0745 hours on D-day. Fighting its way inland, the 22nd pierced through enemy opposition to the outskirts of Cherbourg, then played a major part in clearing the Cotenin peninsula. During the Vietnam War, the 2nd battalion, 22nd Infantry was assigned to the 4th Infantry Division and the 25th Infantry Division. The battalion took part in “Operation Attleboro” and in one of the most fiercely contested engagements of the Vietnam conflict, the Battle of Ninh. When it was over, eight NVA regiments staggered away, leaving behind 200 dead and the 2nd battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment with a valorous unit award after helping break the siege of Kontum. The regiment’s last mission in Vietnam prior to deactivation was an attack on enemy sanctuaries in Cambodia to root out NVA insurgents. The 2nd battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment was reactivated on 25 September 1986 as a part of the 10th Mountain Division (Light). In October 1993, the battalion was alerted to deploy to Somalia. During the 5-month deployment, the battalion conducted security missions in every major U.N. Compound and supply route. The battalion’s increased presence in Mogadishu dropped the incidence of hostile encounters aimed at U.S. Forces to zero. The battalion was again called to action in September 1994 when the 10th Mountain Division deployed to Haiti during operation restore democracy. The 2nd Battalion, 22nd Infantry led the 10th Mountain Division into Haiti as the first unit to conduct operations on Haitian soil with an air-assault off of the U.S.S. Eisenhower. In support of the Global War on Terrorism, the 2nd Battalion has deployed three times. The battalion first deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. From August 2003 through May 2004, the battalion distinguished itself participating in a variety of missions throughout the entire country, including vehicle checkpoints, cordon and searches, air assaults and search and attacks. Next, the battalion deployed to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The battalion was responsible for maintaining stability in the contentious Abu Ghraib district of western Baghdad from August 2005 to July 2006. The air assaults, raids and searches, combined with training the Iraqi security forces and humanitarian relief operations effectively disrupted Anti-Iraqi Forces. The 2nd battalion returned to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Task Force Courage took responsibility of the ethnically diverse and volatile region of Kirkuk in northern Iraq. From September 2007 to October 2008, the battalion improved the reality and perception of increased security, stability, and normality among all Iraqis in the province. The battalion coupled combat operations with patrols designed to enhance the Iraqi’s ability for self-governance. Not only did the battalion conduct air assaults, raids and searches, but it also strengthened Iraqi security forces, involved more locals in security through the sons of Iraq program, made city councils more effective, and created job opportunities. These actions significantly reduced violence and created an environment less conducive to insurgent activities. Most recently, the 2nd Battalion, 22nd Infantry deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Task Force Triple Deuce deployed to over 18 different locations across Afghanistan in order to augment the NATO Training Mission – Afghanistan / Combined Security Transition Command – Afghanistan. Task Force Soldiers were responsible for training the vast majority of Afghan Soldiers graduated into the Afghan Army in 2010. From January to December 2010, Triple Deuce Soldiers improved the quality of Afghan Soldiers and the Afghan training command across theater. Although tasked with a highly unusual mission for an Infantry Battalion, the men and women performed exceptionally well, ultimately improving the training of over 50,000 Afghan Soldiers and thousands of Afghan police. The history of the 22nd Infantry Regiment and the 2nd Battalion, 22nd Infantry is a long and honorable one. Those of us who continue to carry the colors forward in the future rely on our proud past to maintain the warrior spirit to fight and win. We remember the actions that created the regiment’s first motto, “regulars by god!” As an inspiration to us all to live by our current motto “deeds not words!”

It's odd, I was in the 2nd Battle Group 22nd Inf at Ft. Lewis in 1962-1963. In the summer of 1963 organization was designated the 2Bn 22nd Inf. I can ffind nothing online about this unit. On top of that, my DD-214 reads last duty station was 2nd Bn 22nd Inf (M). Anyone have any info on this? Just getting nosy in my old age. Thanks
Quick note here for those of you who are in a dark place or just want to continue their journey, healing from PTSD. This past September (the 11th in fact) I received an injection known as a Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB). A simple procedure where an injection into the neck all but turns off many of the symptoms related to PTSD. When I say "turn off" I mean an instant sense of relief from the moment the procedure began. Simply put... an injection into the side of your neck, that essentially resets the brains fight or flight response. The memories are there but the impact they have has been minimized. While this is NOT a cure, it does allow some distance between PTSD and day to day life... I am now in the unique position to connect any of you who are interested with a non-profit to cover the costs of the procedure. Insurance has yet to cover this, and while the VA and Army conduct trials the procedure has been conducted on over 1500 Veterans nationwide. If anyone is interested in more information, please send me a DM. I have also pasted a YouTube link below DNW

I am a teacher in Somerville, Tennessee, and my students are reading a novel about the Vietnam War and creating projects to honor fallen soldiers. One of students will honor Thomas Beeb Chambers. If you served with "Beeb" in the winter of '67, would you connect with me to discuss serving with him.
