This Distinctive Unit Insignia was originally approved for the 104th Infantry Division on 15 December 1942 and was redesignated for the 104th Division Training in 1959. It was also authorized for the 104th Division (Institutional Training) until a new insignia, designed under the guidance of. Major General T.K. Moffett and based heavily on the unit’s Shoulder Sleeve Insignia, was approved. That new insignia has since been redesignated for the 104th Training Division and the current 104th Training Division (Leader Training).

The design of the 104th Infantry Division Distinctive Unit Insignia was based upon two things only: the numerical designation of the unit and its motto. A heraldic martlet (similar to a small bird such as a martin) is perched on the interior of a circle with a descrescent in its beak. The descrescent symbolizes the Roman numeral “C” for 100, and the martlet is the heraldic representation of the fourth son, adding up to 104. The unit motto, “We Succeed,” cements the insignia.
