134th Infantry Regiment Website
"All Hell Can't Stop Us"
On July 15, 1917, the Regiment was mobilized at Camp Cody, New Mexico, were it was redesigned the 134th Infantry, 34th Division. After having been called on heavily for cadres and replacements, the Regiment embarked for France October 13, 1918, arriving there October 28. It was never committed in action during World War I. Commemorative of that service, the crest bears the steer skull superimposed on the olla, the present insignia of the 34th Division. To complete the Regimental Crest, we find the background of Argent and Azure, the old and present colors of the Infantry.
