U.S. Army Chemical Corps Regimental Insignia
The Chemical Corps Regimental insignia was approved on 2 May 1986 for use by soldiers affiliated with the Chemical Corps. All Corps Regimental insignias are worn over the right breast pocket on the Class A uniform signifying each service member’s unique branch of service.
The Chemical Corps Regimental insignia displays the colors of the Army Chemical Corps, cobalt blue and golden yellow. The battle scarred tree trunk, taken from the Coat of Arms of the 1st Chemical Regiment, refers to the historical beginnings, or root of American chemical warfare. The dragon, a legendary creature, symbolizes the fire and destruction of chemical warfare. Along the bottom of the insignia are the Latin words, “Elementis Regamus Proelium” which means “We rule the battle through the elements.”
Ever since chemical warfare became a reality during World War I, the U.S. Army Chemical Corps has played a critical role in keeping America’s soldiers protected from chemical attack. Whether they are decontaminating an area or developing new protocols to safeguard our troops, the men and women of the Chemical Corps make the battlefield a safer place for our soldiers.
