The 7th Psychological Operations Group was consti-tuted 19 August 1965 in the Regular Army with that designation as the successor to United States Army Broadcasting and Visual Activity, Pacific. Before its inactivation on 30 June 1974, the Group was awarded four Meritorious Unit Commendations; it was subsequently redesignated the Headquarters and Headquarters Detachment, 7th Psychological Operations Group on 20 October 1975 and simultaneously allotted to the Army Reserve and activated at the Presidio of San Francisco.

It received its current designation as Headquarters and Headquarters Company (HHC), 7th Psychological Operations Group in 1990 and was relocated to Moffett Field, California in 1994. During the Global War on Terrorism, a Detachment of its HHC was honored with an Army Superior Unit Award for its service between January and December 2006. It remains headquartered at Moffett Field with four Psychological Operations Battalions (10th, 12th, 14th, and 17th) under its command.

The Distinctive Unit Insignia of the 7th Psychological Operations Battalion, frequently referred to as a unit crest, was authorized on 15 April 1969. A torch, symbol of enlightenment and knowledge, is the insignia’s focal point; its seven tongues of flame is a reference to the unit’s numerical designation and basic mission, as is the motto “Support By Truth.”

Behind the torch is a torii gate, a reference to the unit’s activation on the island of Okinawa; bookending the torch is a quill (symbol of the power of ideas) and a sword, which represents military force in general and alludes to the use of Psychological Operations as a type of warfare in and of itself. The green background of the torii gate is the branch color of Psychological Operations.
