The 121st Infantry Regiment

 The 121st Infantry Regiment was originally a unit of the Georgia National Guard.  As such it had a long history dating back to the Civil War. The unusual insignia for the regiment is a representation of a gray bonnet- taken from a song the men used to sing while on the march. The song gave rise to the unit nickname of the "Gray Bonnets" and the development of this insignia.
