Description

A gold color metal and enamel device consisting of a gold triple-towered tower with a blue arched entrance surmounted by a blue boomerang point up, all above a scarlet scroll inscribed “HONOR AND ACHIEVEMENT” in gold letters.


Symbolism

The design commemorates the action for which the Battalion was awarded the Philippine Presidential Unit Citation:  i.e., participation in the assault landing which liberated the Philippine Islands.  The tower is from the arms of the City of Manila, capital of the Islands; it also alludes to the unit’s construction function.  The boomerang, a weapon used in the South Pacific area, refers to the victorious return of the American Forces.


Background

The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 20 October 1966.
