167th Area Support Group
The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 22 December 1971, consisting of a disc divided vertically buff and scarlet bearing a stylized silhouette representation of the "Old Man of the Mountain" on the left, a mountain peak in the center and a pine tree on the right, all overlaid and of green enamel with a white enamel outline all within a gold chain of sixteen links and above a gold scroll around base inscribed "LINKS OF STRENGTH" in black enamel.
Buff and scarlet are the colors used for Support. A chain is symbolic of strong support, and its links suggest a coordinated group. The chain also augments the unit's motto and a gold chain denotes durability. The Old Man of the Mountain, the mountain peak and the pine tree refer to New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine, the tri-state home area of the organization.
