Issuing from the sinister side of a 2 1/4 inch (5.72 cm) white square, flat side up, a blue dragon’s head all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) blue border. (The dragon’s tongue points to dexter base corner.)

The dragon’s head is representative of cunning, endurance and ferocity against enemies and is symbolic of the strategy and powerful attack of the Corps.

The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 18th Army Corps on 15 February 1944. It was amended to change the description and add the airborne tab on 1 May 1950. The insignia was redesignated for the XVIII Airborne Corps on 16 September 1958. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-73)
