A gold metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm) in height overall consisting of a yellow shield bearing, on a black bendlet, a Pawnee Indian scout in traditional dress holding a rifle, mounted on a horse, in shades of brown, and attached below the shield a black scroll doubled yellow, inscribed “TI RAH I KUTS” in gold letters.
Yellow is the color traditionally associated with Cavalry. The black bendlet stands for integrity and military strength. The Pawnee Indian scout represents Nebraska and the early history of the United States Army Cavalry in that state. The motto translates to “Bold Ones.”
The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 16 September 1988.
