Background

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 lightning bolts signify the speed and power the group projects around the world. The placement of three lightning bolts is intended to reinforce the Air Force core values--Integrity, Service and Excellence. The bombs are representative of power as well as the ability of the Group to transport equipment or fuel to the warfighter globally. The wings are used to illustrate that the group uses flight as the primary means to carry out the mission. The unit motto is "Ales Victoria," translated, "Winged Victory." The symbols were replicated from the World War II emblem of the 385th Bombardment Group and modified to illustrate the current mission for the 385th Air Expeditionary Group.
