192nd Assault Helicopter Company

The 192nd Assault Helicopter Company's crest was designed and drawn by Major Smith, then the Company XO, and Warrant Officer Tidey. It was conceived by Major Smith, who drew the basic desired design, and then turned the final work over to Warrant Officer Tidey. The crest was completed and presented to Major Baker, the Company Commander, who approved it in early September of 1967.

All of the major items of the crest were chosen for a significant reason. The shield was chosen to represent our offensive as well as defensive capabilities. The "flying white horse" represented the unit's task upon arrival in Vietnam: the aerial support of the Republic of Korea's "White Horse" Division. The buttressed line dividing the top and bottom portions of the shield was selected for its heraldic portrayal of an embattlement. It was thought to be very appropriate to incorporate such a symbol into the crest since the unit was to leave for Vietnam in early October 1967.

The colors used in the crest were also chosen for a symbolic meaning. The teal blue and gold are the colors of Army aviation. The black was chosen as it represented our night flying capabilities, the white for the "White Horse" Division. The motto "WE BOW TO NONE" was selected to depict our stated ambition and professional competence to equal or surpass those who are "ABOVE THE BEST".
