743D MILITARY INTELLIGENCE BATTALION
Distinctive Unit Insignia
A silver color metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm) in height consisting of a medium blue oval gridlined silver superimposed by a silver delta flight symbol and enclosed in base by a black scroll inscribed "BEYOND ALL BOUNDARIES" in silver; overall a diagonally crossed black dagger and yellow lightning flash.
Oriental blue and silver gray (silver) are the traditional colors of the Military Intelligence Corps. Black and white/silver denote the day and night continuous operations conducted by elements of the unit, as well as the covert and overt nature of the battalion. The black dagger symbolizes stealth and military preparedness as soldiers of the battalion are continually prepared for worldwide deployment with and for warfighters. The flash denotes speed and accuracy, as well as the battalion's ability to provide worldwide communications and intelligence support. The gridlined oval represents the global mission of the unit and its soldiers' widespread deployment. The delta flight symbol extending beyond the boundaries of the globe symbolizes the unit's association with space and its mission to exploit space-based assets, and underscores the unit's motto, "Beyond All Boundaries."
The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 5 January 1998.
