The U.S. Army Cadet Command established the Regimental Affiliation Program in 1985 to foster unit cohesion, camaraderie, esprit de corps, and the pride of belonging among the diverse groups of Cadets attending the Leader Development and Assessment Course from states around the nation.
Cadets attending LDAC have the unique privilege of being members of one of the Army’s finest combat units. Through the Regimental Affiliation Program, each Cadet organization is assigned to an active Army regiment. The goal of the program is to bind Cadets and cadre together in a close-knit and dynamic organizational relationship with a strong sense of teamwork so crucial to success at LDAC.
LDAC’s 10th Regiment is affiliated with the U.S. Army’s 23rd Infantry Regiment. “We Serve.”
The 23rd Infantry Regiment has a proud and distinguished history of service to the nation. From the Civil War to Vietnam, the 23rd Infantry Regiment has proven its courage and bravery.
Organized on July 8, 1861, the 23rd Infantry first saw action on Civil War battlefields, serving with distinction at Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg.
