The 41st Infantry Regiment was originally formed as a company of the 41st Infantry using soldiers of the 3rd Battalion, 36th Infantry Regiment. Though assigned to the 10th Division at Camp Funston in July 1918 for training before deployment to France, the collapse of German resistance at the start of November brought about the Armistice before the Regiment could embark for the journey.

During World War II, the unit was reactivated and the Regiment comprised the organic Infantry of the 2nd Armored Division, a relationship that would continue throughout the War and into the mid-1990s. For its actions during the Second World War, the Regiment received four Presidential Unit Citations for its outstanding performance while taking part in the Norman, Northern France, Rhineland, Ardennes-Alsace, and Central Europe campaigns. The unit also was honored with a Belgian Fouragere, cited once in the Order of the Day for its combat action in Belgum and another time for fighting in the Ardennes.

During the First Gulf War in 1991, the Regiment’s 1st Battalion served as part of Task Force 1-41 along with the 3rd Battalion, 66th Armored Regiment. In what became known as the “Whirlwind War,” the 1st Battalion took part in two historic engagements, the Battle of 73 Easting and the Battle Norfolk, and earned a Valorous Unit Award.

Today, the Regiment’s two Battalions, the 1st and the 3rd, are assigned to the 3rd and 1st Brigade Combat Teams of the 1st Armored Division based at Fort Bliss, Texas.
