Distinctive Unit Insignia
 
Design Approved: 6 June 1969
 
Symbolism: The placer mining pan, an engineer's tool suggested by the shoulder sleeve insignia of the 49th Infantry Division, refers to the unit's descent, while the embattlements denote fortifications either built or demolished. The sun and sword refer to the motto, with the sword relating to leadership and the sun to light. The pan and sun are used to symbolize the golden state of California and the scroll simulates the Sacramento River around Redding, the unit's home area.
 
Motto: With Sword and Knowledge
