What is a Blue Cord?

U.S. Army Soldiers receive the prestigious Blue Cord upon graduating from specialized training and it marks the moment they become an infantryman.

The Infantry Blue Cord is presented to all qualified infantrymen in the U.S. Army at the end of their Initial Entry Training. Commissioned officers earn their Blue Cord after graduating from the U.S. Army Infantry School's Infantry Officer Basic Course (IBOLC).
