67TH ARMOR REGIMENT, US ARMY
Shield: Per fess gules and or, a mount azure erupting and smoking proper.
Crest: On a wreath of the colors a lion rampant sable.
The Insignia on the Shield is inherited from the 305th Tank Brigade of World War I. In this Brigade served the 17th Tank Battalion (then designated 303rd Tank Bn.). The Erupring Volcano indicates the Heavy Losses suffered by the Battalion from antitank Mines. The Crest is from the Arms of the French Province of Picardy, where the Brigade saw all of its action.
