418th Civil Affairs Battalion

The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 8 Mar 1993, consisting of a shield blazoned: Purpure, a lion rampant guardant Argent, grasping in dexter paw a scimitar Or. Attached below the shield a bipartite purple scroll inscribed, "PROUD READY" in silver. Purple and white are the colors traditionally associated with Civil Affairs organizations. The rampant lion and scimitar are symbolic of strength and courage and reflect the Battalion's campaign participation in Southwest Asia, while underscoring the unit's motto "Proud Ready."
