The unit patch of the 143rd Sustainment Command is a symbol of both the unit’s history and the mission of the 143rd. It is identical to the CSIB (Combat Service Identification Badge) of the 143rd. The CSIB is given to any unit in the US military that has seen actual combat. The unit’s patch, on the other hand, has always been with the unit since its original inception in 1968 as the 143rd Transportation Brigade. When the unit became the 143rd Transportation Command in 1985, the patch was redesignated with both the description and symbolism amended. In 2007 the unit took on its current designation of the 143rd Sustainment Command, and again the patch was redesignated with an amended description and symbolism.
                The colors of yellow and red are the colors used to designate units with the Transportation designation, which the 143rd has until recently in 2007. The arrowheads are representative of the 143rd’s leadership, readiness for battle, and determined and controlled direction. The arrow head and colors of yellow and red can also be seen on the unit’s crest.  The fact that the two are interlacing shows the strong support systems that the 143rd utilizes and creates. They also symbolize roads and travel, which reference the unit’s mission. The 143rd Sustainment Command plans, coordinates, and leads sustainment operations. They also manage theatre deployment and redeployment to support areas of ongoing operations. The unit’s motto is also indicative of their actions and mission, “Movement Brings Victory.”
