Distinctive Unit Insignia


Description/Blazon
A Gold color metal and enamel device 1 1/16 inches (2.70 cm) in height consisting of a shield blazoned: Per bend Or and Gules a fleur-de-lis in bend counterchanged. Attached below the shield a Gold scroll inscribed "NUNC UT OLIM" in Black letters.

Symbolism
Scarlet is the color of Artillery. The fleur-de-lis represents service in France in World War I. The martial aspect of the organization is symbolized by the diagonal division of the shield, representing the heraldic bend, which anciently denoted the scarf of a military commander. The motto translates to "Now As Before" and is appropriate to the expectation of a continuance of the past record.

Background
The distinctive unit insignia was originally approved for 905th Field Artillery Battalion, Organized Reserve on 26 February 1943. It was redesignated for the 80th Regiment, Army Reserve on 16 August 1960. It was amended to correct the motto on 19 June 1968.
