History of the Combat Infantrymen’s Association
The year 1985 marked the beginning of The Combat Infantrymen’s Association. Three men, all World War veterans, each having earned the Combat Infantry Badge began discussing the possibility of having an “elite” organization. The three men, now known as the “Founding Fathers”, were Robert W. Wisccup, Paul N. Baker and Richard a Soeshee. They began with only their fortitude, drive and persistence to pave the way to our present.

The one admired as the very best
Is the one of infantry blue
