The day of the Dedication of the 5th Regimental Combat Team, the Honor Guard had two special ceremonies. First one at the 5th Memorial. Then an Hour later at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, where they placed a wreath and honored the Unknown Soldier from the Korean War.
The 5th Infantry Regiment, the Infantry Unit of the 5th Regimental Combat team (nicknamed the '"Bobcats" and during the Korean War "The Fire Brigade" is the third-oldest infantry regiment of the United States Army, tracing its origins to 1808. It has participated in most of the wars the United States has fought during its history.
Six of the old regiments (4th, 9th, 13th, 21st, 40th and 46th) were consolidated into the new 5th Regiment, which was organized on 15 May 1815 under the command of Colonel James Miller. The current 5th Infantry traces its actual origins to the oldest of these regiments, the 4th, which was organized in May–June 1808. After three years' garrison duty in New England, the 4th assembled near Philadelphia in the spring of 1811. From there it proceeded by way of the Ohio and Wabash rivers to Vincennes, Indiana Territory, reporting to the territorial governor, William Henry Harrison, who assembled a force of volunteers and militia around the 4th. They proceeded into north central Indiana to confront the forces of the Shawnee leader Tecumseh and his brother Tenskwatawa, the Prophet, who attacked on the morning of 7 November in the Battle of Tippecanoe, where they were soundly defeated by U.S. forces.
