Smitty, you have some amazing DUIs and I'm amazed at your ability to identify them all.
Is there any online reference you're aware of?
I have a couple that I'd like to nail down but don't know where to look.

Roy,

Thank you very much. I have about 2500 that I will be posting as time permits. I am refocusing and staying with Infantry since that was my branch when I served.

There are a few online sources. The institute of Heraldry at the pentagon has a large selection of the mottos and current unit crests. There are some that are now deactivated and they will not have pictures.

There is a unit crest book that was done several years ago by Ira Green which is also a great source.

If you know the motto, you can go to the motto link posted below, type in the motto and it will show all units with that particular motto. It will not unfortunately bring you to the link. You will have to go back out and then open up the distinguished unit insignia link, also posted below and then scroll through until you find the crest you are looking for. In the event that you cant find the crest, let me know, I have numerous catalogs and books from ASMIC and I may be able to identify them for you.. Will be happy to help you..

Here are two links for the Institute of Heraldry..

Roy,

There are some issues with the site. Other users are also saying it is not working. I have no problem accessing the links from my government computer but when I get home I cant' seem to open them either. I have some friends there so I will call them and see what is going on with the links
