Symbolism The red shape of the device, a stylized "olla" (Mexican water flask), is adapted from the Iowa Army National Guard shoulder sleeve insignia and underscores the heritage of the unit. The arrowhead commemorates the unit's World War II service campaigns and awards. Black denotes constancy and durability; red, symbolizes sacrifice, valor, and reflects the color of the Meritorious Unit Citation award. The golden hawk's head highlights the organization's home location, Iowa, and refers to Iowa being called the Hawkeye State.

Background The distinctive unit insignia was originally approved on 13 October 2006. It was amended to reflect that the insignia would be manufactured and worn in pairs on 7 June 2007.
