The goal of the U.S. Army Regimental System (USARS) is to foster unit readiness and combat effectiveness by developing in soldiers a sense of loyalty and commitment which comes from long-term identification with a unit and the opportunity to highlight the history, customs and traditions behind the regiment.

Our MISSION is: To provide museums and archives for exhibits and artifacts of historic significance from the 116th Infantry Regiment and area Citizen Soldiers; Conduct education programs for Students and Adults; Support outreach for Veterans, members of The Regiment and their families.
