National Yellow Bat Day
The National Yellow Bat Day is a day to commemorate the efforts of brave people who risk their lives for our country. On this particular date in 1967, an army unit was activated within one of America’s most famous divisions -The 101st Airborne Division- and they were permitted by Congress so that these special forces could protect key points around battlefields during wartime!
Why National Yellow Bat Day?
The bat with outstretched wings on a full moon rising is the official insignia or logo of 265th Army Security Agency Company. The motto, “Through The Night Below” reflects their mission which entails protecting our country from all threats – both above ground as well below it!
When the troops were about to be deployed, they painted every military vehicle and requisite equipment with a yellow bat. The symbol made individual units’ assets visible from afar which helped them identify their forces easily in case of emergency or confusion during combat conditions
The soldiers had done this before going into battle so that when fighting began everything would still look familiar even if there was smoke rising all around you-it meant survival!
The 265th Army Security Agency Company was deployed to Vietnam with the designation, “265 Radio Research Co.” The unit’s mission was primarily intelligence support for the 101st Airborne Division. However, they arrived just before Tet Offensive and eventually discovered the North Vietnamese campaign – despite being fully operational only weeks beforehand!
Tet or Vietnamese New Year is a very special day. Amid war between North Vietnam and South Vietnam there existed an ancient truce that served for over five decades before it could be broken on 31st January 1954 when General VO Nguyen Giap planned his assault using this date as leverage during what would come to be known internationally as “The Lunar Calendar offensive”.
He believed strongly in its power not only because he wanted revenge after many years spent living under Japanese occupation but also out fear-that without taking control at home nothing else matters: victory now means survival for the entire nation.
Fortunately, the 265th RRC (ABN) was watching over its region’s defensive perimeter at Bien Hoa Air Base along with a very few small units that believed their intelligence reports. They were able to stop this major attack before it began!
