A large number of Jat people have served in the Indian Army, including in the Jat Regiment, Sikh Regiment, Rajputana Rifles(45%) and the Granadiers, where they have won many of the highest military awards for gallantry and bravery. The Jat Regiment is one of the longest serving and most decorated infantry regiments of the Indian Army having won 24 battle honours between 1839 and 1947, along with numerous decorations of individual members.
