  1965 –

 

 

In 1959 the “Bull Six” won the intramural Championships. Since then they have won the Academic Achievement Award in 1965, Military Proficiency in 1965 and 1966, and was named Honor Squadron in 1965. Presently the 6th is being sponsored by the Aeronautical Systems Division, Wright Patterson AFB, Ohio.  – C3C Andrew Fallon, Class of 1976, Falconews, 29 March 1974


 

The Sixth Squadron patch is indicative of the spirit shown by “Bull Six.” The jet black bull, charging in fury, represents strength, power, and “bullish determination.” The bright red color of the bull’s eyes and horns symbolize the intensity which Sixth Squadron uses to achieve its goals. Sixth Squadron, with its horns lowered for combat, is truly a squadron with a “go for it” attitude. – 1975 Polaris
