Description

A Silver color metal and enamel device consisting of a shield blazoned:  Per chevron Argent and Gules, in chief, a torii and in base a falcon’s leg erased counterchanged, armed Azure and jessed Sable.  Attached below and to the sides of the shield a Silver scroll inscribed “BUILDERS FOR PEACE” in Black letters.


Symbolism

Scarlet and white are for the Corps of Engineers.  The falcon’s leg, alluding to Aviation, and the torii, a symbol of support, refer to the unit’s former function of aviation support.  The torii is a type of gateway widely used in the Orient.  The two posts represent pillars of the universe and the horizontal bar is for the sky.  It stands for the Battalion’s participation in the campaigns for the Western Pacific and the Ryukyu Islands during World War II.  The chevron shaped division line, simulating the rafters of a roof, stands for the organization’s present mission of construction.


Background

The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 17 January 1967.
