501st Aviation Regiment


The distinctive unit insignia was originally approved for the 501st Aviation Battalion on 31 January 1962. It was rescinded on 8 July 1976. The insignia was reinstated for the 501st Aviation Battalion and amended to revise the symbolism effective 21 June 1978. It was redesignated effective 16 October 1988, for the 501st Aviation Regiment with the description revised.

There are some variations of the 501st AVN pocket patches out there. I have seen 3 variations and the unit crest pictured does have a pocket patch variation
