Distinctive Unit Insignia

A silver color metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm) in width overall, consisting of a maroon cross with a silver demi-fleur-de-lis issuing from each arm and a single silver fleur-de-lis placed in the center, and in saltire behind the cross two silver swords with points overlapping a down-curving scarlet scroll above the pommels below resting on an upward curving silver scroll inscribed "MIHI PORTATE VULNERATOS" in maroon.

Maroon and white (silver) are colors traditionally associated with the Medical Department. The cross represents the Hospital and the service it provides. The five fleurs-de-lis signify the unit's campaign honors for service in France and Central Europe in World War II. The scarlet scroll at the top refers to the Hospital's Meritorious Unit Commendation. The crossed swords, signify the mission of the unit to provide care to all patients within the combat zone. The translation of the motto is "Bring Ye To Me (Your) Wounded."

The distinctive unit insignia was originally approved for the 67th Evacuation Hospital on 30 December 1968. It was redesignated for the 67th Combat Support Hospital, effective 16 July 1993, with description and symbolism revised.
