Symbolism

Ultramarine blue and Air Force yellow are the Air Force colors. Blue alludes to the sky, the primary theater of Air Force operations. Yellow refers to the sun and the excellence required of Air Force personnel. The serpent entwined around the pheon alludes to highly trained medics, protecting the blood of life and ensuring readiness of the warfighters, whose stealth enables them to strike targets with impunity and arrow-like precision. The globe and white flight symbol and orbital trace represent the unit's mission to optimize performance and prepare Squadron medics to excel--anytime, anywhere.
