1962     "Rebeleven"


Description: The patch consists of a white equilateral triangle, bordered in red, superimposed on a circular blue field. A red Arabic numeral “11” on a set of prop and wings is in the center.

Significance: The triangle superimposed upon the circle is borrowed from the 6th Bomb Wing, the original squadron sponsor. The triangle represents the Greek letter Delta, reminding all wearers that each new group of fourthclassmen was assigned to Delta Squadron during Basic Cadet Training. The three segments of the circle represent Academics, Athletics, and Military training. The silver prop and wings symbolizes the Cadet wing, while the large numeral “11” identifies the Eleventh Cadet Squadron. The emblem bears the squadron colors, red and white, the class colors, gold, blue, silver, and red, and the Cadet Wing colors, blue and silver.

History: This is the original squadron patch.

Nickname: "Rebeleven"

The three segments of the circle cut by the triangle represent academics, athletics, and military training. The winged propeller stands for the entire Cadet Wing. “Reb Eleven” was established soon after the move from Lowry AFB. The squadron has earned the Academic Achievement Trophy in 1966-1967 and the Intercollegiate Athletic Trophy in 1964-1965. The 11th is presently sponsored by the 44th Strategic Missile Wing, Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota.  – C3C James P. Hunt, Class of 1976, Falconews, 29 March 1974


 

The Eleventh Squadron patch receives most of its heritage from units that served in World War II. The three segments of the circle cut by the triangle represent academics, athletics, and military training. The winged propeller represents the Cadet Wing, while the colors red and white represent the squadron. The triangle also represents the Greek Delta and means that Basic Cadets in Delta Squadron will become members of Eleventh squadron.  – 1975 Polaris
