Origin/meaning

The colors crimson and yellow (gold) are the colors of the unit’s immediate predecessor, the 748th Armored Ordnance Battalion, the pheon and clarion alluding to the two battle honors (new Guinea with arrowhead and Southern Philippines) awarded for service in World War II. The clarion is also a type of trumpet with clear, piercing tones and in being a form of signal refers to the transition to a Signal organization.

The Coat of Arms and the Distinctive Unit Insignia was originally approved for the 748th Armored Ordnance Battalion on 8 Jan 1957. They was amended on 5 Feb 1957 to change the wording in the blazon of the shield. They was redesignated for the 146th Signal Battalion on 4 Feb 1969.
