The distinctive unit crest of the 14th Armored Cavalry Regiment recalls the notable early history of the unit. The gold background is symbolic of the Cavalry and its branch color. The blue band recalls the color of the blue uniform worn by the troops when the Regiment was activated in 1901. The black Moro "kris" represents the more than forty engagements, expeditions and skirmishes in which the Regiment participated during the Philippine Insurrection. The coiled rattle snake in the lower left of the Regimental shield is symbolic of the Regiment's service in the west and along the Mexican Border during the period 1902 - 1918. The motto of the Regiment is "SUIVEZ MOI" meaning ... Follow Me.

In time line order, scenes captured by the troopers of the 2nd Squadron ... Suivez Moi!
