Distinctive Unit Insignia

A gold color metal and dark blue enameled rectangle rounded on the top and bottom 1 3/16 inches (3.02 cm) in height overall consisting of two gray pallets issuant from base, couped in chief each charged with two gold stars palewise, all below a gold crown with seven rays, attached around the sides and bottom of the rectangle is a red scroll doubled and inscribed with "NOS MEMOR" in gold; overall in base a crossed sword, blade white, hand guard and pommel gold with a brown leather grip and a lightning bolt gold.

The lightning bolt and sword are adopted from the 1st Information Command and are symbolic to the Information Operations community. Dark blue, red, and white are our National colors. The red of the scroll is for valor and sacrifice. Its inscription "NOS MEMOR" which translates to "We Remember" is a tribute to the 9/11 victims and its impact on New York City and the world. The two pallets represent the World Trade Center, ground zero, only 30 minutes from the unit's location. The Liberty crown is also symbolic of the organization's location in New York City. Many of the unit's soldiers came from the 77th Infantry Division (Regional Readiness Command) and the stars on the pallets honor the four soldiers from the 77th that were killed in the World Trade Center on 9/11.

The distinctive unit insignia was approved effective 16 September 2009.
