Distinctive Badge Symbolism
The colors scarlet and yellow (gold) are for the Artillery. The organization's performance of outstanding service in Vietnam, for which it received a Meritorious Unit Commendation, is commemorated by the leafed gold bamboo stalk bent in a "V" shape. The unit's historic World War I campaign service in Europe is indicated by the fleur-de-lis at the top. The black circular scroll alludes to the mouth of a cannon and the gunner's lanyard is suggested by the unit's motto and the Artillery mission of the Group.

 

Meritorious Unit Commendation
