These wings of the major commands and subordinate wings of the Air Force are units that the Squadron is charged with protecting. The winged dagger represents military preparedness with swift and silent mobilization of forces. The genie lamp with smoke symbolizes light and learning and the Squadron’s untiring pursuit of truth and knowledge.
