From this action the unit derives its distinctive unit insignia depicting a black artillery shell and the wavy white background symbolizing the first shot across the Rio Grande by "A" Battery, 1st Battalion, 82nd Field Artillery.

The battalion was the only horse artillery in the United States Army at the time and the designation meant that all unit members rode mounted horses instead of riding on gun carriages.

This type of short musket had a dragon's head worked on the muzzle.

From the First Dragoons was formed the First Cavalry which in turn became the mother of the 24th Cavalry.

A Battery participated in the July‚ÄďAugust 1970 defense of the Special Forces base at Kham Duc where they suffered several casualties.

Fifteen unit members were awarded medals for valor in this action including three silver stars.
