3rd Battalion – 9th Marines Hill 881 – Khe Sanh Hell in a Helmet 3rd Battalion – 9th Marines 1965 Unauthorised – 3rd battalion, 9th Marines patch shows a vulture, on top of an “eight ball” with an entrenching tool behind, holding the banner “3rd Bn, 9th Marines.” The words over the patch are “Shadow Warriors”, and underneath a banner states “Death in the Dark.” The symbology is that 3/9th was always “behind the eight ball”, and always digging in wherever they went with a Vulture waiting for them. This emblem is a parody of the “Eagle, Globe, and Anchor” of the United States Marines. “Shadow Warriors” was the name given to them by the Viet Cong in Quang Tri Province. “Death in the Dark” came from the number of night patrols, and night ambushes set up, that the battalion constantly did.
