Symbolism

Ultramarine blue and Air Force yellow are the Air Force colors. Blue alludes to the sky, the primary theater of Air Force operations. Yellow refers to the sun and the excellence required of Air Force personnel. The Staff of Asclepius is the traditional symbol associated with the healing arts and serves as a strong reminder of the unit's primary mission; coupled with the stylized wings, which are representative of airpower associated with the Air Force and the mobile nature of the unit which takes the healing profession wherever the mission may dictate. The stylized wings cradle a representation of the globe, further emphasizing the Air Force Medical Service's commitment to mission accomplishment around the world. The warrior holding the globe symbolizes the significance of support as the backbone to accomplishing the overall medical mission and military mobility commitment. The Latin motto, "INTEGRITAS MUNERIS EXCELLENTIA" translates to "INTEGRITY SERVICE EXCELLENCE," in English and represents the constant quest to provide the best support through the acquisition and application of further education and knowledge.
