Shoulder sleeve insignia
On a disc divided vertically blue and scarlet with a 1⁄8 inch (0.32 cm) yellow border, 3 inches (7.6 cm) in diameter overall, two white eagles’ heads conjoined back to back, beaks yellow, eyes detailed black.
The two eagles’ heads are in reference to the unit’s motto, “Twice the Citizen,” and their Reserve mission. The eagle faces in both directions, denoting vigilance and a wide-ranging scope of ability and expertise. Red, white and blue are the colors of the United States; gold stands for excellence.
A shoulder sleeve insignia was originally authorized on 24 June 1991 for the U.S. Army Reserve Command. On 26 August 1997 the insignia was cancelled and the new insignia was authorized.
Distinctive unit insignia
A silver color metal and enamel device 1 1⁄8 inches (2.9 cm) in width overall, consisting of a shield divided palewise silver and blue charged with a tree in full foliage counter changed of the field, all upon two silver sabres saltirewise, points down, the tips overlaying a scarlet motto scroll enclosing the device and terminating at the sword hilts, bearing the inscription “TWICE THE CITIZEN” in silver letters.
Blue and scarlet, with silver (white), represent the United States. Red also stands for courage and sacrifice. The dual responsibilities of citizenship and military service are denoted by the two sabres, and the integration of peaceful with soldierly vocations is represented by the tree on the shield. The nature of these two-fold duties is further symbolized by the division and counter change of the shield, which also recalls the motto of the Command. The tree represents the pursuit and preservation of peace through strength, endurance and growth.
The distinctive unit insignia was authorized on 7 March 1991.
