Distinctive Unit Insignia


Description/Blazon
A gold color metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm) in height consisting of a gold wheel enclosing a buff disc and bearing a gold billet superimposed by a red demi-sun above two blue wavy bars and all below a black crossed sword and key, point and wards down. Attached below the wheel a tripartite black scroll inscribed "VICTORY WITH LOGISTICS" in gold.

Symbolism
Buff and yellow (gold) are the colors associated with Supply and Service, former designation of the unit. Black represents strength, solidity and dependability. The wheel and disc symbolize transportation and the delivery of supplies. The black sword is adapted from the Quartermaster Corps branch insignia; the sword is indicative of military forces and the key alludes to storekeeping functions. The blue wavy bars represent the Columbia River, source of the Oregon Territory's original name, as it empties into the Pacific Ocean, symbolized by the demi-sun. The billet suggests logistics and administration.

Background
The distinctive unit insignia was originally approved for the 741st Supply and Service Battalion on 1 March 1990. It was redesignated for the 741st Support Battalion on 3 April 1997.
