Cadet Squadron 02

The patch is a large circular emblem with a thin silver border. A banner inscribed with the word "DEUCE" sits on top of the circle. From a white contrail on a black field emerges the Roman numeral II. A red and blue contrail, produced by two jet aircraft frame the white contrail. The red, white and blue contrails represents the colors of the American flag. The "II" identifies the Second Cadet Squadron. The black background signifies the vastness of space. The planes originating from the top of the field denote humanity?s conquest of space. The three contrails represent the three areas in which all cadets strive to excel: Military, academics, and athletics. This patch, designed and first used by the Second Cadet Squadron in 1972, is the third patch worn by its members.
