Headquarters, 25th Infantry,

Camp Stephen D. Little, Nogales, Arizona,
September 30, 1921.

1. A Board of Officers is appointed to meet at Camp Stephen D. Little, Arizona, on Friday, September 30, 1921, or as soon thereafter as may be practicable to make recommendations to the Commanding Officer as to the selection of a distinctive badge or trimmings for the uniform as contemplated in Circular No. 224, W. D., c. s.

Detail for the Board:

Captain J. H. Nankivell, 25th Infantry.

Captain G. H. McCafferty, 25th Infantry.

1st Lieutenant Charles F. Colson, 25th Infantry.

The proceedings of the Board will be submitted in quadruplicate.

By order of Lieutenant Colonel Wescott:

Lowell W. Rooks,
Adjutant.

* * * * *

The Board met pursuant to the above instructions on October 1, 1921 and October 7, 1921.

Present:

Captain John H. Nankivell, 25th Infantry.
Captain Grattan H. McCafferty, 25th Infantry.

1st Lieutenant Charles F. Colson, 25th Infantry.

2. Circular No. 224, W. D. c. s., contemplates that regiments of the Regular Army wear a distinctive badge, or trimmings for the purpose of promoting esprit de corps and keeping alive historical traditions. With this purpose in view the Board set out to establish which of the regiment’s historical traditions would, by their individuality, be sufficiently distinctive.

There being no regimental coat of arms from which the Board could adopt a badge, it was felt that one should be designed symbolizing the service of the regiment, and that it should be used as a basis for the regimental badge.

3. The history of the regiment shows participation in the Indian Wars which, although there is no one individual happening that stands out, should be symbolized. The participation in the Philippine Insurrection merits being incorporated in the coat of arms.
