CavHooah is proud to offer Ira Green authentic 278th Armored Cavalry Regiment Distinctive Unit Insignia. Full size unit crest for Class A, Dress Blue, and Army Service Uniform (ASU). This insignia is sold as a set of two.

A Gold color metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm) in height overall consisting of a shield blazoned: Per chevron Or and Vert, in chief two lightning flashes conjoined chevronwise Gules and in base between three mullets Argent a pairle wavy throughout Azure. Attached below the shield a Gold scroll inscribed “I VOLUNTEER SIR” in Black letters.

Yellow and green are colors traditionally associated with Cavalry and Armor. The chevron shape is symbolic of strength, security, and support. The three white stars are adapted from the flag of the state of Tennessee, the unit’s home area, and the heraldic pairle (or triskelion) alludes to the Tennessee, Holston, and French Broad Rivers, environs of the Regiment. The lightning flashes conjoined symbolize speed and readiness and the accuracy and firepower of an Armored Cavalry unit.

The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 5 September 1979.
