Quote from: TDHenderson on January 13, 2007, 01:56:35 amOK, made some adjustments based upon comments received. The squadron name is now complete on the bottom and the squadron motto in latin is on the top. That translates to "For Our Neighbor".Better?
Quote from: 2nd LT Fairchild on January 20, 2007, 11:56:15 amFigured I would put our patch in here..It was designed a number of years ago by a cadet, it got approved up the chain but sat and languished for over 5 years...The Cadet who designed it, eventually left the squadron.. (His brothers stayed and are doing very well.Sad thing this cadet was killed in a tragic accident less than a year ago... As I was designing a new patch at the time not knowing about this one, I dropped my design and said we had to go and use his to honor his memory.We are locaed in what is called the Glider capital of the world... We have the soaring museum a few miles away, and across the runway from our building is Sweitzer aircraft who made a large contribution to the glider world. (We also have the Curtiss museum about 20 minutes away too)

QuoteThe Group III Emblem was designed in accordance with Air Force Instruction AFI 84-105. Group and wing emblems are shield-shaped, while squadron emblems are on a disc.The heraldic blazon (the unique language used to describe heraldic emblems) is as follows:On a shield sable with a diminutive border or, the Texas state flag in the outline of the state of Texas proper, with a Roman numeral III gules in the field argent. On upper sinister quadrant, the Air Force emblem argent, on lower dexter quadrant a triangle argent with a three-bladed propeller gules. Motto: TERTIA SEMPER PRIMORIS (Third [Group] Is Always First).In plain English, the above means:On a black shield with a small gold border, the Texas state flag in the outline of the state of Texas (in its proper colors [of red, white and blue]), with a red Roman numeral III in the white field. On the upper left quadrant (as worn by the bearer), the Air Force symbol in white, on the lower right quadrant a white triangle with a red three-bladed propeller (the CAP emblem). Motto: TERTIA SEMPER PRIMORIS (Third [Group] Is Always First). The emblem design was co-authored by 1st Lt Charles E. Corway and Capt Arthur E. Woodgate. The finishing touches were the result of a collaborative effort by a Group III team.Significance of the Emblem: The focal point of the emblem is the State of Texas which acknowledges Group III as a part of the Texas Wing and that our volunteers support the great State of Texas. As with the flag of the United States, the blue stands for loyalty, the white represents purity, and the red is for bravery, all traits exhibited by our volunteer members on a regular basis. The five points of the Lone Star represent the characteristics of a good citizen, which are fortitude, loyalty, righteousness, prudence, and broadmindedness. The Roman numeral three is the official Group designation and is positioned in North Texas near the location of the Group headquarters.Within the black background are the symbols of the United States Air Force and the Civil Air Patrol showing the partnership that exists both by congressional order and by virtue of the great working relationship that we enjoy. The black background represents the night sky that our volunteers often work within providing support. The entire patch is surrounded in gold representing the purity of our intent to serve our fellow man through volunteerism.Finally, the motto Tertia Semper Primoris is Latin and translates to "Third Always First". This motto puts forth the Group III ideal to always strive for excellence in all that we do. Being first is not intended to denote winning but rather to lead the way.
Quote from: Major Carrales on February 25, 2007, 06:23:09 pmWhile we have never made this into a physical "patch" we put it on everything. It was designed by me until we can get a better one going...It says it all...were from TEXAS (via the Texas wing patch lonestar), were CAP ("CAP" and the Tri-Prop) and were from Corpus Christi (via the scrolling).I'm gonna get a contest open to see who can design a better one.
