4th Infantry Division

The mission of the 4th Infantry Division is to deploy and sustain brigade units of action and, on order, conduct decisive full-spectrum combat operations in order to accomplish combatant commander objectives. The 4th Infantry Division's nickname, the "Ivy" Division, came from the design of its shoulder patch: 4 green ivy leaves joined at the stem and opening at the 4 corners. Ivy leaves were symbolic of tenacity and fidelity and were the basis of the Division Motto, "Steadfast and Loyal." The word "Ivy" was also a play on the Roman numeral 4, "IV." The 4th Infantry Division was also known as the "Iron Horse" Division.
