Unknown Numbered Infantry Officer Branch Insignia


Recommended Posts

I ran across this photo of LTC John C. Morrisey, Jr. wearing Infantry branch insignia with the number 3 above and some letters below which I can't completely make out. TRS? The Ranger School?

 

Any thoughts?

Might be TRB for Training Battalion. Note that he has the Drill Instructor DI on his shoulders.

I agree with TeamSki that its TRB and maybe stands for Training Reserve Battalion.

LTC John C. Morrisey Jr. was my grandfather. He did finish his career at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO in the mid 1960's as battalion commander of the 3rd Training Regiment, 3rd Battalion. He started out as a private and worked all of the way up to LTC. He fought with the 36th Division (143rd Infantry) during WWII. He fought with the 7th Division (17th Infantry) during the Korean War. He earned two Silver Stars, one Bronze Star, and a Purple Heart (for being shot twice at the Battle of San Pietro). He was a POW in Germany and escaped capture after being in OFLAG 64 for a good while. I've been working on a profile of his entire career for my family. Sorry if this is not where the question was going, but since he passed last year I've been missing him like crazy and thought I'd provide a little additional feedback
