The Quartermaster Corps was established in 1912 when Congress combined three Departments: Pay, Quartermaster, and Subsistence. Its branch insignia was approved in 1913, and in 1956 it was listed as a Basic Branch of the United States Army. On 13 June 1986, the U.S. Army Quartermaster Regiment was established in the U.S. Army Regimental System, with Fort Lee designated to serve as its home base. Over 40 years later, the Quartermaster Branch was redesignated as a Corps, and the Regimental Honors Program now uses the term “Corps” in place of “Regiment” and “Regimental.” The Quartermaster Corps, along with the Transportation and Ordnance Corps, comprise the Logistics Branch.

An eagle facing to is right with spread wings dominates the Quartermaster Corps Distinctive Insignia; the eagle is standing upon a wheel containing thirteen gold stars linked to thirteen gold spokes connected to a white disc with a red center. A sword indicating military force and a key symbolizing storekeeping are superimposed over the wheel, which evokes the image of transportation.

This insignia was approved in 1994, replacing the Quartermaster Regimental Insignia authorized in 1986.
