The 356th Tactical Airlift Squadron patch features the winged horse, "Pegasus". It was the logo of the Fairchild Aircraft Company, the builder of the C-119.
  The latin phrase, "VICTOR VIAM DUCAT", (Let a Winner Lead the Way) was added to give the patch a touch of class.
  This information was provided by Ken Race, the designer of the 356th Squadron Patch.
