A Gold color metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm) in height overall consisting of a shield blazoned: Per chevron enhanced nebuly Azure and Buff, a horse’s head erased Sable. Attached below the shield a Red scroll inscribed “IRON EAGLE SUPPORT” in Gold.
Buff (gold) and scarlet are the colors traditionally associated with Support units. The chevron denotes support. It is nebuly, a heraldic symbol for clouds, recalling the unit’s association with Aviation. The horse’s head refers to the unit’s call sign, “Workhorse.” Black signifies strength and stability and simulates iron, highlighting the unit’s motto. Scarlet denotes courage. Blue recalls again the unit’s association with Aviation.
The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 10 May 1995.
