Description/Blazon

A silver color metal and enamel device consisting of a pair of white wings on an inverted blue chevron, overall a silver sword; all interlaced with an elliptical silver band so that the wings and the arms of the chevron extend over and beyond the outer edge of the band and the point and hilt of the sword under and beyond; the upper part of the band inscribed "GUIDE" and the lower part "FOLLOW ‧ SAFEGUARD" all in blue letters.


Symbolism

The chevron supporting the wings stands for the Group's mission of Aviation support.  The crusader's sword is taken from the shoulder sleeve insignia of the US Military Assistance Command, Vietnam.  It refers to the activation and initial combat service of the Group in that country.  In addition, the sword which simulates a "1" and the inverted chevron which resembles the Roman numeral "V," refer to the organization's numerical designation.  Ultramarine blue is the color for Aviation units.


Background

The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 23 June 1969.
