Origin/meaning

Dark blue is the primary branch color of the Adjutant General's Corps. The torch represents the training mission of the Battalion and the globe symbolizes the world wide service of its graduates. The quill refers to the administrative responsibilities of the unit's mission and the sword represents the U.S. Army. Crest: The star symbolizes the unit's Meritorious Unit Commendation; the mount and palms allude to the Pacific and the unit's World War II area of service. The demi-torteau forms the illusion of the setting sun and represents victory over Japan in the Pacific. Palms are also a traditional symbol of victory. They are portrayed as "palmettos," the state tree of South Carolina, and reflect the unit's home location at Ft Jackson.

The Coat of Arms and Distinctive Unit Insignia was both approved on 9 December 1987.
