Origin/meaning

Buff and light blue are the colors traditionally associated with Quartermaster battalions. The chevron symbolizes support and strength. The keystone represents Pennsylvania, home state of the unit. Red is emblematic of action and valor. The key is adapted from the Quartermaster insignia of branch and recalls the Quartermaster's Corps' control and distribution of vital military supplies. The arrows, also adapted from the insignia of branch, symbolize combat readiness.

The Coat of Arms and Distinctive Unit Insignia was approved 7 February 2000.
