Q: What could the d in squad stand for?

Question is not clear. Do you mean was there a "Squad D"?


An US Infantry Regiment was divided into 3 battalions, each containing 4 Companies. These 12 companies were labeled by Letters: Company A, Company B...

Company D was the fourth company and would be in the 1st Battalion. The 4th company of each battalion was a Heavy Weapons Company, meaning they were armed not with rifles & light machine guns BUT with mortars, and heavy .50 caliber machine guns.

An infantry company is divided into Platoons and these were divided into Squads. There was no such thing as a "Squad D".
