Shoulder Sleeve Insignia

Description
On a golden yellow shield semi-circular at top and base 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height and 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width overall bearing across the center throughout a light blue (grotto blue) horizontal wavy bar, overall a three-spoked brick red wheel, the perpendicular spoke to base, all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) brick red border with two brick red vertical directional arrows issuing one each from the top and base with heads pointing to center and terminating at the rim of the wheel.

Symbolism
Brick red and golden yellow are colors used for Transportation. The wheel, a symbol of transportation, and the wavy blue bar, indicative of water, refer to the Command’s mission in the transfer of personnel and cargo from one mode of transportation to another at water terminals. Together with the arrows, they also refer to the logistical over-the-shore (LOTS) operation sites, air and other type terminals. The blue water and yellow background also denote the unit’s allotment to the US Army Reserve located at Tampa, Florida; yellow is for Florida, the “Sunshine State” and Tampa is its largest seaport. Additionally, the three spokes and two arrows allude to the numerical designation of the Command.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 29 November 1968. It was cancelled effective 15 March 1972. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-510)
