Hi Folks:

 

I recently picked up a silver plated mug with clear plastic bottom...but had the captain's name engraved on the from w/Unit Logo...which I don't know.  "SOLDIERS OF THE SKY"  Winged dart or arrow.  The engraving has "BN STDS" = Battalion Standards??  Dated 14 MAR 72 - 20 JAN 73"

 

Any help in identifying the unit.  Thank you

 

I was thinking 173rd ABN but I could be wrong

Battalion Standards, 10th Aviation Battalion (later 10th AVN REGT, attached to 10th Mountain at Ft. Drum). These are the guys that gave pilots their recurrent training and check rides.
