Hi,
When did the US stop using regimental markings on the sides of their helmets?

I've seen pictures of troops with months of combat experience landing at op. Dragoon wearing these painted on and I expected them to of painted over them by then as they are red and white.

Was it just something they did for the landings?

Helmet markings were still in use in 1945.
However that doesn't mean all of them were, a lot overpainted them or didn't paint them on when accuiring a new helmet.

A generic answer is allmost impossible to give.
