A silver color metal and enamel device consisting of a gray triangle with extended silver wings in front of a blue circle charged in upper portions with two silver lightning flashes, pierced above the wings on either side, all behind a black triangle with barbed points, surmounted by a silver cobra poised to strike; in base a silver scroll with blue backing looped over extreme ends of a gray triangle, pierced in center and bearing the inscription “SEARCH AND DESTROY” in black letters.
The cobra rising up over the black background represents the constant hovering strike capabilities of the Battalion with emphasis on night operations. The barbed triangle represents the unit’s three primary capabilities: reconnaissance, surveillance and attack. The Battalion was organized in 1967 from personnel of the provisional “Phantom Battalion” with three surveillance companies and one helicopter company. The gray delta shape (gray ghost) alludes to the “Phantom Battalion;” the silver wings represent the historical background of the unit’s airplane companies and the cobra refers to the armed helicopter company. The lightning flashes on the blue circle refer to the Battalion’s speed in communications and continuous alertness in carrying out its mission.
The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 21 June 1968. It was amended to update the symbolism on 21 May 1985.
