7th SOS

7th Special Operations Squadron (7th SOS) operates the MC-130H and CV-22B, executing night, adverse weather, long-range insertion, extraction and resupply operations into hostile, denied or politically sensitive areas. The squadron also supports noncombatant evacuation, humanitarian relief, and other special operations. The Combat Talon II and Osprey are employed using a combination of terrain-following radar, high-precision avionics and sensors, and electronic countermeasures.

7th Special Operations Squadron Emblem (1965)

The emblem is symbolic of the squadron and its mission. The blue background represents the sky, the primary theater of Air Force operations. 
The eagle with wings spread over the globe signifies flight and the units mission capabilities to any point in the world. The lightning flash refers to the rapidity and the sword to the strength and power with which the squadron accomplishes its mission. The emblem bears the Air Force colors, golden yellow and ultramarine blue.

2nd Air Commando Group Patch (1944-45)


The blue background represents the sky.  The “C” is an abbreviation for Air Commandos.  It remains a mystery as to what the lightning bolts and exclamation point represent.  It is likely that the lightning bolts represent the mobile combat capability of the group to strike by air or land anyplace, anywhere, and anytime.  In terms of the exclamation point, it is likely that the intent was to copy, yet distinguishes itself from, the 1st Air Commando Group that incorporated a question mark for its respective patch.  The question mark was the result of the many questions the unit received about the glider snagging gear mounted in their C-47s before their arrival in Burma.  Since their entire operation was classified, they made up several interesting tales, and the question mark insignia was the result of this secrecy.
