Symbolism

Ultramarine blue and Air Force yellow are the Air Force colors. Blue represents the sky, the primary theater of Air Force operations. Yellow refers to the sun and the excellence required of Air Force personnel. The wings and the mariner's helm represent the historic transportation mission of the installation: training mariners, rail operators and aircraft mechanics. The mariner's helm also represents the Group's enduring mission to operate the Army's 3d Port on the James River. The wings signify the Group's foundation as an Air Force unit and subordinate role within the 633d Air Base Wing, as well as the ongoing responsibility to train Army Aviation Soldiers. The torch of knowledge depicts the historic and continuing functions of Fort Eustis and the home of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, responsible for Army training standards.
