Distinctive Unit Insignia

A gold color metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm) in height overall consisting of an eight-spoked gold truck wheel and tire with brick red hub within a triskelion formed by three green leaves with gold stems and veins, the upper two grape and the lower ash and with all areas between all stems and spokes of brick red.

Brick red and golden yellow (gold) are the colors used for Transportation units. The ancient triskelion, symbol for movement, and the truck wheel denote the unit's mission. The wheel also alludes to the unit's service during World War II in the Rhineland and Central Europe campaigns, the area being represented by the grape leaves. The ash is noted for being tough and elastic and useful to man. The organization's present homesite, Fresno in Spanish, means ash.

The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 11 September 1970.
