1st Battalion, 10th Field Artillery Regiment
"The Rock's Support"
The 10th Field Artillery Regiment was constituted on 1 July 1916 in the Regular Army as the 10th Field Artillery. The 1st Battalion, 10th Field Artillery was constituted on 1 July 1916 in the Regular Army as Battery A, 10th Field Artillery. It was organized to Active Duty on 1 June 1917 at Douglas, Arizona. On 12 November 1917, the 10th Field Artillery was assigned to the 3rd Division (later redesignated the 3d Infantry Division). The unit then deployed for duty in Europe during World War I and during the War was credited for participation in 5 campaigns: Champagne-Marne; Aisne-Marne; St Mihiel; Meuse-Argonne; and Champagne-Marne 1918. Additionally, the unit was decorated with the following decorations during World War I: The Presidential Unit Citation, Streamer embroidered COLMAR and the French Croix de Guerre with Gilt Star, World War I, Streamer embroidered Champagne-Marne and Aisne Marne.

It was during this war that the Regiment adopted its motto "The Rock's Support." The motto finds its roots in the fact that the 10th Field Artillery was in the 3rd Division during the legendary stand on the Marne. The 10th Field Artillery found itself on the right of the Division supporting the 38th Infantry. With the help of the fires of the 10th Field Artillery, the 38th Infantry held its ground along the muddy banks of the Marne.

It was also during World War I that the 10th Field Artillery had its first soldier receive the Medal of Honor, 1st Lieutenant George Price Hays. At the outset of an unprecedented artillery bombardment by the enemy on the 14-15 July 1918, Lieutenant Hays lines of communication were destroyed beyond repair. Despite the hazards associated with being a runner, Lieutenant Hays immediately set out to establish liaison with the neighboring command and 2 neighboring French batteries. Hays visited these French positions so frequently that he was mainly responsible for the accurate fires therefrom. While thus engaged, 7 horses were shot out from under him and Lieutenant Hays was severely wounded. His activities under the most severe fires were an important factor in checking the advance of the enemy.
