Symbolism
The phoenix represents renewal and the agility of logistics to adapt to ever changing conditions, to rise from old to new practices as in the case of support to civil authorities, such as helping to reestablish operations in the communities of hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The red refers to Logistics and gold is emblematic of honor and high achievement. The polestar represents navigation; it was used by the cattle drivers to navigate north from Texas creating one of the nation’s largest logistics enterprises. It also represents the Army values that help guide soldiers and leaders of the unit. The lightning flashes are for quick response. The colors of the background are adapted from the Texas flag with the wavy white pale symbolizing a river or the flow of logistics to the warfighter.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 28 July 2009. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-1008)
