Quick Overview

2d Cavalry Regiment Combat Service Identification Badge (CSIB)

The original Shoulder Sleeve Insignia (SSI) is described as: On a black disc within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) yellow border 2 3/4 inches (6.99 cm) in diameter overall, a yellow octagonal with concave sides a green scalloped circle bearing a white fleur-de-lis all above a green motto scroll bearing the inscription “Toujours Prêt” in yellow letters.

The design of the CSIB is based on the Regiment’s distinctive insignia. The yellow octagonal simulates the eight pointed star insignia worn by dragoons, the 2d Cavalry having been originally formed as the Second Regiment of Dragoons in 1836. The green scalloped circle, simulating a palmetto leaf, represents the Regiment’s first action against the Seminole Indians in Florida, where the palmetto leaf grows in abundance. The fleur-de-lis is for combat service in France in both World War I and World War II.

The motto "Toujours Prêt” (Always Ready) expresses the spirit and élan of the 2d Cavalry Regiment.

New CSIBs will be added as they become available so check back often!
