394th Support Battalion (Corps)
The distinctive unit insignia was originally approved for the 394th Ordnance Battalion on 16 March 1970. It was redesignated with description and symbolism revised effective 16 September 1995, for the 394th Support Battalion. It consists of a green background quartered in gold, surmounted overall by a red (crimson) triangle; in base and in front of the triangle and extending below it a black firebomb emitting a gold flame, the firebomb charged in the center with a simulated hawk eye, all below a gold semi-circular scroll of three sections inscribed "MISSION SUPPORT SUCCESS" in black letters. The firebomb emitting flames refers to the combat readiness of the 394th Support Battalion. The triangle simulates a pyramid and symbolizes support, while crimson represents the branch color of the previous designation as an Ordnance unit. The unit's location in Iowa is symbolized by the simulated hawk eye and alludes to Iowa's nickname as the "Hawkeye State."
