1st Battalion - 623rd Field Artillery (MLRS)

The field of the shield is red with fleurs-de-lis for the 106th AAA AW Battalion's service and many battle honors awarded in World War II as artillery. The two blue pallets are for service as infantry in the Spanish-American War and World War I; credit for which came from the consolidation in 1921 of this unit with the 138th Machine Gun Battalion (formerly the 3rd Battalion, 3rd Regiment Infantry). The Mexican and Civil Wars are represented by the chief. The chief is yellow for cavalry. The saltire is gray for Confederate service. The cactus is for Mexican War service.
