Yellow is a color traditionally associated with Armor and Cavalry units. The bi-colored forward thrust of the chevron refers to the predecessor unit's two assault landings (in New Guinea and in the Southern Philippines) during World War II. The sea lion and stars are taken from the Philippine Presidential Seal in reference to the action for which the parent unit was awarded the Philippine Presidential Unit Citation.
The crests are those of the Oregon and Nevada Army National Guard.
