 490th Bombardment Squadron, Medium
[b]Emblem Significance:[/b] The sword piercing the center of the bull's eye is indicative of accuracy of mission and striking power; the thunderbolt elements as reimposed from the Strategic Air Command emblem suggest force and, as coupled with the sword, denote the power of force and accuracy assured by the squadron.  The horizontal bisection of the shield contains the fortress crenulations of the US Air Force shield with a fortress-grey base below the star emblazoned blue of the Strategic Air Command banner.  Emblem approved 11 July 1956. (Source: AFHRA Records)
