Metal 11th air assault wings.
On 7 February 1963 the 11th Airborne Division were reactivated at Fort Benning, GA, as the 11th Air Assault Division (Test). The 11th was a small unit used to test the airmobile concept then under development.
This badge was worn in the early 1960s by troops of 11th who qualified for it by making three helicopter rappels from 60 feet and three from 120 feet. Soldiers were also required to be knowledgeable of aircraft safety procedures; familiar with aircraft orientation; proficient in hand and arm signals and combat assault operations; able to prepare, inspect and rig equipment for external sling loads; and able to lash down equipment inside helicopters. The badge was first awarded in early 1964 and was only authorized for wear by soldiers within the 11th.
