U.S. ARMY 3RD AIR DEFENSE ARTILLERY REGIMENT UNIT CREST

Though organized on 1 June 1821 as the 2nd Regiment of Artillery, the 2nd Air Defense Artillery Regimental Distinctive Insignia was not approved until 24 November 1924 while the unit was designated as the 2nd Coast Artillery. The insignia’s design is a tribute to its actions during the Civil War, with an American eagle perched atop a saltire taken from the Confederate flag. Similarly, “FIDUS ULTRA FINEM,” Latin for “Faithful Beyond The End,” was approved as the unit motto while the Regiment was still known as the 2nd Coast Artillery.

Although a total of five battalions were activated under the banner of the 2nd Air Defense Artillery Regiment, today the only active battalion is the 3rd, which has three active batteries. Battery A and Battery D are based at Fort Sill along with the Regimental HQ, all of which are subordinate units of the 31st Air Defense Artillery Brigade.
