On either side of the shield is a blue scroll, the left inscribed "VIGILANT" and on the right "RESPONSE" in silver letters.
Red, white (silver) and blue reflect the Army Materiel Command colors. The red arrow point alludes to the letter "A" and stands for The Americas (North and South America). The total of eleven stars commemorates September 11th (9-11) as the unit was formed in response to the Global War on Terrorism. The numerical total of the designations of the 5th and 6th Armies also are represented by the eleven stars. Our national eagle, symbol of vigilance and strength, is used by Acquisition, which is the main function of the Brigade. The swords represent readiness, teamwork, and the two Armies of THE AMERICAS, 5th and 6th.
The distinctive unit insignia was approved effective 16 June 2007.
