“Artillery

The King of Battle”

Distinguished and Honorary Members of the 11th Infantry Regiment

The Army Regimental System is governed by Army Regulation 600-82. The OCS Program since 1989 has been the mission of the 3rd Battalion 11th Infantry and the 11th Commander or the 199th Infantry Brigade Commander have been the Army’s Proponent. In 2016 under the direction of COL (R) Frank Harman, USAOCSAA began a process to use the Army Regimental System to honor OCS Alumni and OCS Cadre that have through service and support to the Country, the Army, the Infantry and the OCS Program distinguished themselves. OCS Alumni and OCS Cadre selected as DMORs and HMORS are also awarded the Order of ST Maurice.

The ORDER OF SAINT MAURICE

The Order of Saint Maurice is awarded by the National Infantry Association and the Chief of Infantry. This is to recognize the significant contributions made by Infantrymen and Infantry supporters. A nominee for the Order of Saint Maurice must have served the Infantry community with distinction; must have demonstrated a significant contribution in support of the Infantry; and must represent the highest standards of integrity, moral character, professional competence, and dedication to duty.

HCOR Description

• The HCOR is a distinguished retired commissioned officer in the rank of colonel or above, with former service in a unit of the regiment.

• Each regiment will have an HCOR but only one HCOR will serve in the regiment at any given time. Additionally, no one officer can serve as HCOR for more than one regiment or corps simultaneously. The HCOR oversees other honorary position programs and their maintenance. The HCOR may also act as a liaison between his or her regiment or corps and a regimental or corps association (private organization) if one exists.

• The duties of a HCOR are ceremonial and do not conflict with the chain of command. Attendance at regimental or corps functions is by invitation and participation is encouraged.

• The position offers to the regiment or corps the prestige, stature, and experience of the officer appointed as HCOR. The HCOR assists in fostering regimental or corps esprit, traditions, and perpetuation of the history of the regiment or corps.

• HCOR appointees will be appointed as Distinguished Members of the regiment or corps simultaneously with their appointment as HCOR.
