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 red, white and blue arrows represent employment of the three modes of transportation--air, land and sea, in support of global missions of joint Army and Air Force logistics operations. The mountains of Alaska signify the enduring nature of the Squadron, regardless of conditions. The Dall Sheep Ram is a creature unique to the Northern Frontier that embodies the strength, drive and leadership valued by the unit. The ram's ability to rapidly adapt to changing conditions, to maintain balance as it climbs and to band together in pursuit of new endeavors while always taking the high ground makes it the perfect symbol for the Squadron. The mission to succeed is exemplified in the unit motto, "BY UNITED EFFORTS."
