VANGUARD OF THE PACIFIC.
Oriental blue and silver gray are the colors traditionally used by the Military Intelligence Corps. Red denotes valor and zeal; the wavy border alludes to the Pacific rim, the ring of fire. The blue represents the Pacific Ocean. Black is the color of stealth and together with gray represents the Military Intelligence unit's night and day vigilance and covert and overt missions. The helmet and sword highlight the organization's combat preparedness. The unsheathed sword implies the vanguard position thus reinforcing the motto.
The crest is that of the U.S. Army Reserve.
The coat of arms was authorized for the 368th Military Intelligence Battalion on 11 Sep 1998.
