Description

A gold color metal and enamel device consisting of a gold metal sea lion; holding in his dexter paw a black club of a native chief of New Guinea and in his sinister paw a black brigade; charged on his shoulder with a red and blue taeguk of Korea, and with tail encircling a gold mullet of six points.  The device is supported by a red spade iron inscribed “BUILD WITH PRIDE” in gold.


Symbolism

The sea lion symbolizes the unit’s action in the Philippine Islands and their many island missions; while the taeguk represents the Republic of Korea Presidential Unit Citation awarded to the organization.  The chief’s club alludes to an effective New Guinea campaign of World War II.  The bridge, taken from the unit’s old coat of arms, refers to a carry-over of sound construction throughout the unit’s history and the six pointed star symbolizes the organization’s six battle honors for the War in Korea.  The spade iron, red for engineer, alludes to earth moving, the primary basis of construction and alludes to the pushing forward into new territory.  This is exemplified by the unit’s outstanding participation in the building of the Alcan Highway.


Background

The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 1 March 1967.
