The 18th Airborne patch designates one of five divisions designed for rapid deployment to face regional conflicts. These five divisions are a result of the incidents that happened during the Persian Gulf War. The 18th Airborne, two heavy and air assault divisions are capable of deploying on short notice and using force immediately after entering any region.
The 18th Airborne corps patch features a blue dragons head on a white square background. A tab above the white square reads “AIRBORNE” in white lettering on a blue background. The dragon’s head represents cunning, endurance and ferocity. It is also a symbol of the corps striking power and strategy. The insignia was designated as the official 18th Airborne Corps patch in 1958.
