Coat of arms (crest) of the 94th Combat Support Hospital, US Army

Official blazon

A gold color metal and enamel device 1 3/16 inches (3.02 cm) in height overall consisting of a blue elliptical figure, each side indented inwardly, bearing at top a white star, extending upward from the horizontal arms of a white Greek cross bearing a scarlet cross throughout and surmounted in the center by a gold disc charged with a blue fleur-de-lis, in base a semi-circular maroon scroll folded into three sections and inscribed "AID - COMFORT - HEAL" in gold letters, areas between cross and scroll pierced.


The gold disc bearing the blue fleur-de-lis symbolizes the unit's service in the European-African-Middle Eastern Theater, World War II. The Greek cross, a symbol of aid and assistance, represents the 94th General Hospital. The cross of St. George is used here to symbolize the unit's station in England, World War II. The blue field with the single white star refers to Texas, where the organization was originally activated and is currently located. Maroon and white are the colors used for the Army Medical Department.

The Distinctive Unit Insignia was originally approved for the 94th General Hospital on 5 October 1971. It was redesignated effective 5 January 2004, for the 94th Combat Support Hospital, U.S. Army Reserve, with the description and symbolism updated.
