To change information
Shoulder Sleeve Insignia

Description
On a red rectangular shield arched at the sides 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width and 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height overall, two yellow five-pointed stars each charged with a black disc, one at bottom right with comet tail arcing toward upper left and one in upper left with comet tail arcing toward bottom right.

Symbolism
The comets allude to flight trajectory and swiftness. The black discs suggest cannon balls. The comets are placed in a defensive posture referring to the unit’s mission and resemble the number 69. Their position further suggests the link in defense between Europe and the United States.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was authorized on 6 September 1983. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-684)
