PEACE OR WAR, CALM OR STORM
Purple and white are the colors traditionally associated with Civil Affairs organizations. The sword is adapted from the insignia of branch and stands for readiness. The quill represents administrative responsibility and effectiveness. Southwest Asia service in the 1991 action to liberate and defend Kuwait is commemorated by the palm frond. Gold stands for excellence.
The coat of arms was approved on 16 Jul 1993.
