Pershing Failed?[edit]

Is this a typo, or a proper sentence? It seems poorly worded even if accurate. Ender78 (talk) 07:42, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

Recent edit[edit]

  • Renegade is a term for an outlaw, or someone who turns their faith. This is not accurate term for the Apaches that the 10th faced. In my opionion does not honor any of the combantants.
  • I am disappointed that there is not more about what the the 10th accomplished in West Texas. This was a hostile place for the Buffalo Soldiers. Not only the native-americans, but the Mexicans, mexican-americans and whites did not appreciate their presence. Yet their presence help tame the wild west.--Rcollman 02:42, 27 January 2007 (UTC)


A bit weak on modern aspects. Blnguyen (vote in the photo straw poll) 08:34, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

The unit's involvement in the charge to take San Juan Heights is glanced over in quite amazing fashion. Someone does need to do this properly. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:08, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

Camp Lockett[edit]

I see that the unit history, as cited from globalsecurity, does not have any have any mention of the Regiment being moved to Camp Lockett, CA. I have been researching and edditing the Camp Lockett page, and have provided multiple reliable sources which confirm the Regiment having been moved there as part of the 4th Brigade of the 2nd Cavalry Division. Here are just a few reliable citable sources for which to support any edits 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. Need I continue? --RightCowLeftCoast (talk) 05:19, 30 May 2009 (UTC)'s possible one squadron was sent there, and another squadron elsewhere, making both accurate. I never heard about Camp Lockett though, during my stint in the 10th (Not to say it's not true). Paranormal Skeptic (talk) 23:07, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Major rework of article[edit]

I did a major rework of the article and it may now be ready for a B rating. Still some rough edges. I stressed the Battle of San Juan Heights in the article because I saw it as their finest hour - so to speak. Constructive input is welcome as always. Jrcrin001 (talk) 23:14, 8 February 2010 (UTC)

It states links to 2 different disambiguation pages. But even after fixing them, it says it is still a problem. Thoughts or help?

Blue and green links okay to web pages but still a coded as a concern. Any thoughts or ideas? Jrcrin001 (talk) 19:40, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Fixed DAB problem. It was in a wikilink inside the title of a work in a cite. I'm upgrading this to B.--Ejosse1 (talk) 20:28, 10 February 2010 (UTC)

Coat of Arms[edit]

does anyone know why they have the Castillian Coat of Arms as part of their Arms? (talk) 18:12, 29 July 2010 (UTC)

The Coat of Arms represent the Indian campaigns, the Spanish-American War & the Philippine actions. I thought the link that explained this was here. But I was wrong. Now, I have to find it again. Jrcrin001 (talk) 07:04, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

"... and Sable a triangle on its base charged with a sun ombre de soleil ..." The triangle is armor (Tank) and being black represents that the 510th Tank Bn was originaly designated as a "Negro" unit. The face of the sun represents the Philippine Insurrection in which the 22nd Regiment and the 10th Cavalry share a common history. See related symbols here.

I will try to get more later. Jrcrin001 (talk) 08:11, 7 September 2010 (UTC)

Links do not lead to any valid information . . .[edit]

That page at does not have any valid information on it. What should be done about this? Yours, GeorgeLouis (talk) 20:26, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

I have had limited wiki contact and time over the last few months. Thus the delay in responding. The US Army like other organizations occasionally make changes and adjustments to their web pages. The general links were valid at the time of placement. Yes, sometimes you have to go a page or two into the web pages to find the info cited.

There is a fairly new (within the last 2 years or so) procedure within all the Wiki rules that deal with this. I believe it marks the links as no longer valid or needing attention. This allows notification for qualified people to update them. The process of challenging and immediately removing when an item had been properly cited is wrong. Don't believe me, look it up. Ask for help from Administrators if you need to.

For example: The Regimental Song of the Tenth Cavalry Regiment is now at: If you had even Googled or looked a little bit more, you would have found the updated link.

Most responsible editors do a major update or rewrite and cite their sources properly. Then they move on. They write more articles and have limited time to defend, back track and update constantly changing links. This is one reason why Wikipedia is losing editors - because they have to spend more and more time defending or updating than writing. The graffiti clean up problem is another horrendous waste of energy and time. AND I will not say anything about the PC police on Wikipedia.

I am not trying to bite your head off. The problems are getting worse because the Wiki system has become a bureaucracy with too many rules, too many chiefs and not enough regular people who want to write. The majority of people of Wikipedia do not write, but do other things. My life requires time away from writing and helping others on Wikipedia. Sorry but that is reality.

Maybe you can help properly mark outdated links or update links that were changed instead of deleting? That would be helpful. Jrcrin001 (talk) 06:27, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Did I delete? I frankly don't remember, since I do so much editing. Thanks for your comment. Sincerely, your friend, GeorgeLouis (talk) 06:37, 29 February 2012 (UTC)
