The 89th Sustainment Brigade, U.S. Army Reserve was originally constituted as the 89th Division on 5 August 1917 and was organized at Camp Funston in Kansas. Arriving in France in June 1918, the Division went on to earn credit for participation in three campaigns—St. Miheil, Meuse-Argonne, and Lorraine 1918—and was selected to serve as part of the Army of Occupation as a reward for its outstanding performance during the Meuse-Argonne offensive .

Nicknamed the “Rolling W” because its unit patch featured a “W” that when reversed became an “M” and thus stood for “Middle West Division,” the 89th was redesignated an Infantry Division during World War II and took part in the Rhineland and Central Europe campaigns. Following World War II, it was activated in the Organized Reserve (later Army Reserve) and over the years underwent several reorgnizations and redesignations, including the 1959 redesignation as a Training Division and in 1974 its designation as the 89th U.S. Army Reserve Command. In 1996, the unit became the 89th Regional Support Command, and in 2003 morphed into the U.S. Army 89th Regional Readiness Command. It was not until September 2009 that the unit received its current designation as the 89th Sustainment Brigade.

The 89th Sustainment Brigade Distinctive Unit Insignia, or unit crest, uses symbolic imagery to convey its history. A gold torch in the middle of the design is a symbol of its role as a peacetime training unit, while the pair of fleur-de-lis represent the Division’s service in France during two World Wars. White chevronels, which traditionally stand for support, also form the letter “M” for “Midwest Division;” in combination with the blue field they encompass, they are also a nod to the Division’s Rhine River crossing in the waning days of World War II.
