  U.S. 15th Infantry Regiment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 15th Infantry Regiment is currently a parent regiment in the United States Army.
It fought with the armies in the west, participating in major battles such as Shiloh, Chickamauga, and in Sherman's March to the Sea.
In 1957, it was relieved from that division, and organized as a parent unit in the Combat Arms Regimental System, and remains in that "position" today.

 25th Infantry Division Association: Regimental System
With the demise of the infantry regiment, the only remaining tactical regiments left in the army were five armored cavalry regiments which were deemed flexible enough to operate on the atomic battlefield.
As the regiment had been the traditional principal repository of unit history in the Army a plan was devised to retain the regiments as permanent repositories of unit lineages, honors, and histories regardless of future tactical reorganizations.
However all honors accruing to elements of a parent regiment are displayed on the regimental lineage and honors certificate except for some foreign decorations awarded to elements of the regiment.

 Parent regiment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In this system, regiments are simply there to preserve units' lineage, and few regiments actually are combat bodies (in the United States Army, there are very few remaining infantry, cavalry, or artillery regimental bodies).
The exceptions remain the "special" units, such as engineer regiments and armored cavalry regiments.
Rather, the regiments are split into battalions (infantry, usually three) or squadrons (cavalry, usually three or more).

 Personnel selection and screening   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Since service in the Canadian Airborne Regiment was voluntary, it was sometimes necessary to allow a member to be promoted earlier than would otherwise be the case, to ensure that all positions in the CAR were filled at the appropriate rank levels.
Moreover, there was evidence that at least one of the parent regiments was reluctant to take back non-commissioned officers who had been with the CAR for a number of years when this was suggested by the CAR commander and the regimental sergeant-major.
In the parent regiments, a new master corporal was selected from anywhere in the battalion, whereas in the CAR, the commanding officer was effectively limited to choosing from a company-sized sub-unit.

The term "battalion" and "regiment" have been used interchangeably by historians of both the Canadian and British armies, and indeed, the terms have been used that way by those militaries themselves.
In peacetime, the distinction between a Regiment and a battalion may be academic, as most reserve militia regiments have traditionally been organized as a single battalion.
These battalions drew their identity from the parent regiment, taking their name, insignia such as cap badges and shoulder titles, and inherited the history and traditions of that regiment.
