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 molar tooth surrounded by the atomic symbol is emblematic of the Squadron's support of the daily nuclear deterrence mission of the U.S. Air Force. The streaming delta symbolizes the global reach associated with the Air Force flying mission. The Rod of Asclepius is an ancient symbol associated with the practice of medicine and healing to show the unit's secondary mission of providing healthy warriors in support of Air Force missions.
