The 94th Field Artillery Crest Information





On a wreath, argent and gules, issuing from four flames of fire proper, a lion passant gardant for armed and langued azure charged on the shoulder with an annulet of the last surmounted by a lighting flash of the second dexter paw supporting a lance of the first flotant to sinister there from a banner the upper third extended to form a streamer of the like bearing an escutcheon parti per pale of the second and the fourth.



The crest commemorates the unitís combat action in World War II and subsequent service in Germany with the United States Constabulary. The lion is taken form the arms of Normandy where the organization initially contacted the enemy. The flames of fire refer to the four decorations awarded during World War II. The scarlet and blue shield, taken from the arms of Bastogne, and the white color of the banner, alluding to snow, refer to the organizationís participation in the rescue of Bastogne in the heavy snowfall during the Ardennes campaign. The banner is of type frequently used in Europe in the Middle Ages. The annulet and lightning flash, simulating the insignia of the United States Constabulary, allude to the unitís postwar service in Germany.
