A device 3 3/8 inches (8.57 cm) in height and 2 3/4 inches (6.99 cm) in width overall consisting of a blue shield square at top and round on the bottom having across the upper part two forearms with hands clasping the wrists in orange and in the lower half a part of a sun in red with yellow rays pointing upward; on the red sun a stylized Apache Devil Dance Crown in yellow, all enclosed by a white 1/2 inch (1.27 cm) wide concentric border bearing across the top the initials “USAEWS” between two dots all in blue and the motto “UT OMNES COLLABORENT GENTES” also in blue around sides and bottom.
The red section in base is symbolic of the power and vigor of the sun and its influence on man and his culture in the southwestern part of the United States. The yellow rays reaching upward allude to the emanation of the sun’s energy which touch man and give him life and motivation. The clasped hands symbolize the tribal unity of the American Indian and on a larger scale refer to the unity of men throughout the free world, as developed through mutual assistance. The Apache headdress was used in ceremonies marking the coming of young people to adulthood and here signifies the becoming of nations through the common infusion of knowledge and technology.
