Distinctive Unit Insignia

A gold color metal and enamel device 1 3/16 inches (3.02cm) in height consisting of a buff oval within a scarlet border having a red bar across the center on which are two gold "Lions of St. Mark" each facing a gold pale at center charged in base with three light blue five-pointed stars one above the other and topped by a representation of the tower of the Basilica of Vicenza.

Scarlet and buff are the colors associated with support units. The red fess alludes to the Meritorious Unit Commendation awarded the unit for service in Italy during World War II. The tower suggests the Basilica of Vicenza and represents the unit's headquarters location. The lion of St. Mark is symbolic of the Venetial State in whose area the group operates. The tower, placed between the two lions, indicates the link with the Veneto region. The lion of St. Mark also refers to the unit's higher headquarters, U.S. Army SETAF, which bears it on the shoulder sleeve insignia. The stars represent the three campaign credits authorized the unit for World War II service in Italy. The stars are blue, recalling the unit's former designation as the 22d Quartermaster Group whose colors are light blue and buff.

The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 27 Jan 1986.
