Welcome to the 3rd Brigade, 1st Armored Division
4th Battalion, 6th Infantry Regiment
"Regulars"

The 6th Infantry Regiment ("The Regulars") was formed in 1812. Its most famous commander was Zachary Taylor, later the 12th President of the United States. The Motto, "Regulars, By God!" derives from the Battle of Chippewa, in which British general Riall noticed that the approaching regiment had on the uniforms of militia, which the British had defeated at Queenstown Heights. Instead, the Americans pressed the attack. Riall is assumed to have said. "Those are Regulars, By God!" (though the only source of this was opposing U.S. general Winfield Scott).

The regiment has participated in: the War of 1812, Mexican-American War, Civil War, Indian Wars from 1823-1879, Spanish-American War, Philippine-American War, Mexican Expedition, World War I, World War II, and Vietnam. The 6th IR was also part of IFOR, Task Force Eagle, which was charged with implementing the military aspects of the General Framework Agreement for Peace in Bosnia-Herzegovina. In January 1994, the 1st Battalion, 6th Infantry deployed to Macedonia for Operation Able Sentry as part of the United Nations Preventive Deployment Force. In May 1998, Bravo Company was deployed again to Bosnia-Herzegovina in support of Operation Joint Endeavor, Operation Joint Forge (OJE/OJF). In 2001, elements were deployed again to Macedonia and Kosovo. In March 2003, Charlie Company, 2nd Battalion deployed with 5th Corps Headquarters to Kuwait and participated in the initial invasion of Iraq. The rest of the 2nd Battalion and 1st Battalion deployed to Iraq in late April 2003 as part of 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division. The "Regulars" arrived in Baghdad in May 2003, and were the first to relieve elements of the 3rd Infantry Division in Baghdad. The 1st & 2nd Battalions deployed again in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in November 2005 and April 2008. 4-6 IN deployed with 4th BCT in support of Operation New Dawn in August 2011 returning in December 2011.
