Distinctive Unit Insignia

A Gold color metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm) in height overall consisting of a Gold laurel wreath superimposed by a voided equilateral Red triangle with the inscription between bezants in dexter and sinister corners "ENGAGED" on dexter side, "CAPABLE" on sinister side and "COMMITTED" on bottom in Gold letters with the blade of a Black sword piercing the triangle and supporting a small shield blazoned: Tierced in pairle Argent, Gules and Azure, a mullet of four points Or.

Gold is emblematic of excellence and high ideals. Red, white, and blue, our National colors, are also the colors of the Army Materiel Command (AMC), the Expeditionary Contracting Command's higher Army command. The AMC association is further highlighted by these colors and the configuration of the small shield. The polestar, symbol of guidance and the four cardinal directional points, emphasize the Command's worldwide mission to command and control the contracting Support Brigades. This includes contingency, operational, and installation contracting support to forward deployed locations. The triangle with the rivets represents strong support. The sword interlacing the triangle is for readiness and the around the clock support to the Warfighter.

The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 6 February 2009.
