Distinctive Unit Insignia

Description
A gold color metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm) in height consisting of a stylized gold sunburst enclosed at bottom by two green palm fronds and all surmounted by a red chevron inscribed “SIMUL EXIMUS” in gold letters; overall a black saber.

Symbolism
The colors buff (gold) and scarlet are traditionally associated with Support. Red also represents valor and gold, excellence. The stylized sun, palm fronds and scimitar-like saber recall Saudi Arabia and commemorate the unit’s Southwest Asia Campaign credit. The palm frond is emblematic of victory. The chevron, symbolic of support, together with the upright sword underscores the combat support mission of the organization. The motto translates to “We Go Farther Together.”

Background
The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 19 November 1991.
