Distinctive Unit Insignia

A gold color metal and enamel device 1 3/16 inches (3.02 cm) in height overall consisting of a buff arrowhead bearing a gold round shield charged with a white teepee and throughout the round shape is a blue wavy bar in base changing to three barrulets across the teepee, two scarlet and the middle one black, on either side of the top part of the teepee is a stylized black oil derrick, attached on the bottom of the round shield are five white feathers tipped black; all below a gold arrow broken chevronwise. Around the bottom of the arrowhead is a black scroll inscribed with "FUELING WARRIORS" in gold letters.

The color buff is the primary color of Quartermaster units. The arrowhead and broken arrow represent the Indian heritage of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, where the unit was formed. The round shape with five eagle feathers hanging from its base is adapted from the Oklahoma State Flag. The five feathers represent the Cherokee, Choctaw, Creek, Chickasaw and Seminole tribes of Oklahoma. The eagle feathers represent strength and wisdom. The teepee speaks to the proud Indian heritage of the area. The oil derricks refer to the unit's Petroleum mission to fuel soldiers and their equipment. The blue stream is for the organization's water mission. The small red wavy bars symbolize valor and the blood shed for our freedom. The black smaller bar is for the oil that flows through Oklahoma's history. The shield with feathers superimposed on the arrowhead signifies the Warrior Ethos of all soldiers.

The distinctive unit insignia was approved effective 16 September 2006.
