The 156th Infantry Regiment is a unit in the United States Army and Louisiana Army National Guard comprising two Battalions, both assigned to the 256th Infantry Brigade Combat Team in the Louisiana Army National Guard. The 2nd Battalion is headquartered at Abbeville and consists of five companies in addition to its HHC (Headquarters and Headquarters Company), while the 3rd Battalion is based at Lake Charles and has the same number of companies under its command. Two of the Regiment’ Battalions, the 1st and the 4th, were disbanded and removed from service due to Regimental reorganizations in 1977 and 1967 respectively.

The 2nd Battalion was originally formed on the May 9 and May 17, 1861 as the 2nd and 3rd Louisiana Volunteer Infantry Regiments; its Civil War service is commemorated on the 156th Infantry Regiment Regimental Distinctive Insignia with a saltire inspired by the Confederate States of America flag. Beneath the saltire is a leopard; this was taken from the coat of arms of Normandy and represents the unit’s service in Northern France during World War II. The unit motto, "Dieu et Moi," is French for "God and Me.
