17th Infantry Regiment THE BUFFALOES

While the 17th Infantry Regiment was organized on January 11th, 1812, it was consolidated with the 3rd Infantry and lost it's identity two years later until May 3rd, 1861, when it was reorganized.

The 17th Infantry Regiment was in the Army of the Potomac during the Civil War in Sykes' Division of the 5th Army Corps, the badge of which was a white cross patee, which is embodied in the coat of arms and shown on the blue field above and to the left of the stone wall.

At Fredericksburg the 17th suffered heavy losses in the assault on the famous stone wall, "For one entire day, (December 14th) the men of the 17th lay flat on their faces eighty yards in front of the famous stone wall, behind which the enemy was posted in large numbers and any movement on their part was sure to draw the fire of rebel sharpshooters.

The five-bastioned fort, shown on the blue shield above and to the right of the stone wall, was the badge of the 5th Army Corps in Cuba in 1898.

The buffalo, shown on the blue shield bellow the stone wall represents the Regiment's glorious history in the Korean war. The "Buffalo" nick name was adopted after one of the Regiments Commanding Officers in the Korean war, Col. William W. "Buffalo Bill" Quinn.

The shield is blue, being the color representing the infantry.

The Crest is a sea lion taken from the Spanish Arms of Manila for the fighting around that city in 1899.

The two arrows represent the Indian campaigns in which the 17th Regiment participated.

4-17 INFANTRY HISTORY
The 4th Battalion 17th Infantry has a proud and distinguished history. The 17th Infantry was created by Congress on the 11th of January 1812 and formed with personnel from western states and was the only Regular Army regiment in General James Winchester’s column of Army of the Northwest’s campaign to regain Detroit. During the War of 1812, the 17th fought at Frenchtown, Fort Meigs, Fort Stephenson, and Thames River. In 1815, the 17th was consolidated with the 5th, 19th, and 28th Infantry from the 3rd Infantry.

In April of 1861, the bombardment of Fort Sumter stood as the opening engagement of the American Civil War. As tension between the seceded States and the Union came to a violent. This caused President Lincoln to call for the buildup of the Union Army, an Army that would and protect the Union and its interests. The Presidents call resulted in the 17th Infantry once again being constituted in the Regular Army on the 3rd of May 1861. The Adjutant Generals office of President Lincoln issued General Order 16 bringing the regiment back into existence. It differed from the older regiments of infantry in that it had three battalions with one major, one adjutant, one quartermaster and commissary, one sergeant-major, one commissary sergeant, and one hospital steward with eight companies each.

The 17th Infantry Regiment was in the Army of the Potomac as part of “Slow Trot” Skykes Division. From the 5th Army Corps the 17th Infantry Regiment adopted the white cross patee which is seen today on the unit’s coat of arms. At Fredericksburg, the 17th suffered heavy losses in the assault on the famous stone wall. The men of the 17th lay flat on their faces eighty yards in front of the famous stone wall and drew heavy fire from rebel sharpshooters. This wall is also represented on our crest.

The 17th Infantry Regiment fought valiantly in the Indian wars, this is depicted on our coat of arms by two arrows sable, armed and flighted gules. Throughout the Indian Wars our Regiment successfully fought over rough terrain against a determined enemy. The Regiment earned streamers for the Little Big Horn (1876); Pine Ridge (1890-1891); North Dakota 1872.

The sinking of the USS Maine in Havana Cuba once again led the US into war on the 21st of April 1898. The 17th Infantry Regiment again found itself in combat. The five bastioned fort on our crest represents the Regiments service with the V Corps in Cuba. For three months American Soldiers fought and the Soldiers of the 17th Infantry distinguished themselves. On the 1st of July 1898 at El Caney, Cuba: PVT George Berg, PVT Oscar Brookin, CPL Ulysses Buzzard, PVT Thomas Graves, 1LT Benjamin Hardaway, CPL Norman Ressler, 2LT Charles Roberts, CPL Warren Shepherd and PVT Bruno Wende earned this nations highest military award for valor, the Congressional Medal of Honor, all of these Soldiers were proud members of the 17th Infantry Regiment.

The Spanish American war left Spain’s military devastated and this proved a critical point for the Philippine Islands as they grasped the opportunity to gain freedom. Their alliance with the US was short lived and in 1899 combat ensued in Manila. A sea lion was taken from the Spanish Arms of Manila and is proudly depicted on our coat of arms. The 17th Infantry Regiment fought valiantly and tenaciously, continually displaying heroism and courage.

On the 8th of March 1916 Pancho Villa raided Columbus, NM. Villa’s invasion of the US spurred the 17th Infantry Regiment into action as they served in Pershing’s forces to bring Villa to justice.

In June 1942 the Japanese invaded the Aleutian Islands. In 1943 the 17th Infantry Regiment was called to action as part of the 7th Infantry Division and the Regiment was chosen to land at Red Beach, Holtz Bay, on Attu Island in the Bering Sea. The Regiment fought as part of the 7th Infantry Division “Bayonet” throughout World War II. PFC Leonard Brostrom and PFC John Thorson both earned the Congressional Medal of Honor for their gallantry during heavy fighting on Leyte, the Philippine Islands on the 28th of October 1944 as Soldiers from the 17th Infantry Regiment. During World War II the 17th fought in the Aleutian Islands, Eastern Mandates, Leyte and Ryukyus.

The Buffaloes served during the Korean War. They partook in the UN Defensive, UN Offensive, CCF Intervention, First UN Counteroffensive, CCF Spring Offensive, UN Summer-Fall Offensive, Second Korean Winter, Korea Summer-Fall 1952, Third Korean Winter and Korea, Summer 1953. 7 of the 17th Infantry Regiments Soldiers earned the Congressional Medal of Honor during the Korean War: CPT Raymond Harvey, CPL Einar Ingman, PFC Anthony Kaho’ohanohano, CPL William Lyell, PFC Joseph Rodriguez. Also 1LT Richard Shea and PVT Charles Barker both earned the Congressional Medal of Honor for their courage and gallantry at Pork Chop Hill.

1970 saw the arrival of the 17th Infantry Regiment into Vietnam. During this period President Nixon began the Nixon Doctrine, which later became known as “Vietnamization.” This plan called for the build up of the ARVN to defend South Vietnam. The battle hardened Buffaloes served in Counteroffensive Phase VII, Consolidation I, Consolidation II, and Cease Fire.

In 1989 President George Bush called for the use of force against Panama. Declaring that an operation was necessary to safeguard the lives of U.S. citizens in Panama, defend democracy and human rights, combat drug trafficking, and secure the functioning of the Panama Canal. Operation Just Cause involved over 27,000 Soldiers including the 17th Infantry Regiment as members of the 7th IN DIV (L).

The 17th Infantry was activated once again at Fort Bliss Texas as a part of the Ready First Stryker Brigade Combat Team on the 11th of January 2011. The Battalion continues to build combat power to prepare for future operations.
