Distinctive Unit Insignia

A gold color metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm) in height consisting of a buff hexagon, one side up charged with a gold globe issuing six demi-taro leaves, one to each point of the hexagon, overall a gold sword with a white blade, all surmounted by a diagonal red scroll from lower left to upper right doubled and inscribed "VIRTUS PER AUXILIUM" in gold.

Buff and scarlet are colors traditionally associated with support organizations. Gold denotes excellence. The globe highlights the unit's worldwide support mission. The hexagon and the six taro leaves refer to the six major functions of the organization: manning, arming, fueling, maintaining, transporting, and protecting. The sword represents the defense of liberty as well as total military preparedness. The taro leaves refer to the unit's affiliations and associations.

The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 13 September 1993.
