The Unit Crest (also called a Distinctive Unit Insignia) of the 16th Military Police Brigade
highlights its core mission: maintaining law and order wherever it has been deployed. Like the brigade’s CSIB
, the Unit Crest employs green and gold, colors associated with the Military Police Corps. A white sword, along with the red and yellow seen in the design, are used in memory of the unit’s service in Vietnam. The oak leaves buttressing the motto “Combat Support” are symbols of strength and also stand for the state tree of Maryland where the brigade was activated in 1966.
