“The present war has demonstrated the importance of highly proficient, tough, hard, and aggressive infantry, which can be obtained only by developing a high degree of individual all-around proficiency on the part of every infantryman. As a means of attaining the high standards desired and to foster esprit de corp in infantry units, the Combat Infantryman Badge is established for infantry personnel.”
Section I of War Department Circular #269 27 October 1943, Army Chief of Staff General George C. Marshall.
