OH-004 EAGLE COMPOSITE SQDN
Description: On a shield, trimmed in Or, divided party per bend sinister Azure and Vert, with Argent eagle with wings displayed and elevated at honor point standing upon the Civil Air Patrol disc of Argent, Gules, and Azure, trimmed in Or, at the fess point, with Argent airfoil at dexter chief and Argent sword disposed resting upon Or thunderbolts at the sinister base, with Argent scroll resting beneath the base, bearing Vert inscription “4th EAGLE COMPOSITE SQD”.
Significance: The patch has traditional Air Force symbolism and colors. An eagle, with an olive branch for peace in its beak, perches above the Civil Air Patrol’s original emblem, symbolic of the squadron’s namesake, benevolent nature, and heritage. A white airfoil represents aircraft, and the sword with the blade pointing down symbolizes ground searches. The field colors of blue and the green symbolize the air and ground, the areas of operation for the squadron.
