The oak leaf stands for strength; it refers to the role of the battalion as a direct support to the army field area. The wings stand both for swiftness and for the unit's previous aircraft maintenance function. The wheel is for mobility and versatility. The colors blue, red and yellow stand for the varying technical companies which comprise the organization and for the combat arms which it supports. The two stars indicate that the unit is credited with participation in two campaigns, the Rhineland and Central Europe, during World War II. They also refer to the "COSTAR" origin of maintenance direct support battalions.
The trivet, an iron frame used for support, suggests the support mission. The gear alludes to maintenance. The gear upon the trivet suggests the unit's transition from maintenance to the support branch. The Indian head within the red ring signifies the location of the unit, Fort Sill, Oklahoma, alluding to the Oklahoma State seal, which depicts the five civilized Indian nations that comprised most of the territory.
The coat of arms was approved for the 168th Support Battalion effective 16 September 2006.
