VOICE OF COMMAND
Orange and white are the colors used for the Signal Corps. The two mountains are symbolic of the mountainous areas of the Pacific in which the unit provided communications for the 1st Cavalry Division during World War II. They also represent the invasions of the Bismark Archipelago and Leyte. The arm grasping the lighting flashes alludes to the mission of the unit enabling information and orders to be sent and received. The seven lightning flashes commemorate the seven decorations awarded the unit for services in World War II and Korea. The temple refers to actions in Korea during the Korean War.
World War II service represented by the sunburst, adapted from the Philippine flag and divided in scarlet and white, signifying courage and honor. The thirteen scarlet and thirteen white points of the sunburst allude to the unit's designation. The arrows recall assault landings by the unit during World War II. The taeguk symbolizes service in the Korean War and the many decorations awarded for that service, including the Republic of Korea Presidential Unit Citations. The officer's word refers to the awards in recognition of Vietnam service. The horn represents the signal mission and reflects the unit's service in Southwest Asia. Gold signifies excellence.
The coat of arms was originally approved on 28 Oct 1958. It was amended on 4 Mar 1997, to include a crest.
