ShieldMaroon and white are colors traditionally associated with the Medical Corps. World War II service in France and Italy is represented by the fleur-de-lis and chevron respectively, the last also referring to the assaults in Normandy and suggesting the terrain of the locales of Naples and Rome where the unit saw service. The significance of the participation in two major landings is denoted by the palewise division and counterchange of the shield. The fleur-de-lis further symbolizes the special honor of the French Croix de Guerre and the Presidential Unit Citation for action in Normandy.
CrestThe colors red, white and green represent Italy. The honors earned by the Battalion during World War II service in Europe are symbolized by the laurel wreath and the upraised fist signifying victory and the service credits won while fulfilling the mission of medical care to United States personnel. The serpent, ancient symbol of medicine, refers to the mission. The arrowed first denotes strength and the resolve to protect military personnel in wartime. Red stands for courage and sacrifice, white for integrity, and green for health.
The coat of arms was approved on 8 July 1992.
