A Marine Corps V-22 Osprey squadron is getting a makeover, just in time for its 62nd birthday.
VMM-363, out of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Calif., created a new insignia to mark the anniversary, according to a Marine Corps news release.
The squadron, known as the Lucky Red Lions, had an old insignia featuring a brick-red lion on a kelly-green shamrock background.
The new insignia, which was awesomely commemorated in a birthday cake for the celebration, keeps the main elements of the design, but depicts the lion with a more modern stencil theme, with red ribbon banners at the top and bottom. The color scheme is a little brighter, too.
According to the release, the squadron was first activated in 1952 during the Korean War, and first deployed in 1965 to Vietnam.
