Yellow refers to the sun and the excellence required of Air Force personnel. The wing on the right represents Air Force Material Command. The background split by the lightning bolt signifies the critical “around the clock, in all weather” importance of the unit’s mission. The eagle symbolizes vigilance and the unit’s responsibility in protecting its charges. The shield represents a primary mission of defending its base and people and purity in acting only when provoked. The arrows represent the weapons the unit has to defend the people, the base and themselves when needed. The cloud represents air and space with the lightning bolt signifying the unit taking charge and moving forward with speed and accuracy. It also reflects the Squadron’s assignment in the 99th Air Base Wing.
