U.S. ARMY JOINT READINESS TRAINING CENTER OPERATIONS GROUP UNIT CREST

The United States Army’s Joint Readiness Training Command Operations Group has been “forging the warrior spirit” since its establishment in 1987 at Fort Chafee in Arkansas and its subsequent relocation to Fort Polk in 1993.

Approved on 2 August 1989, its Distinctive Unit Insignia (unit crest) features a blue-gold-red flame emerging from a cauldron, reminding the viewer of the Group’s responsibility to train soldiers in the combined-arms doctrine of Infantry (blue), Armor (gold-yellow), and Artillery (red). The black of the insignia symbolizes determination, while the gold represents excellence—excellence that has been translated into no fewer than three Army Superior Unit Awards for its joint-operation training efforts between 2009 and 2012.

The crossed lightning flash and bayonet symbolize the speed and mobility of joint operations and the military might they can project on short notice; the white flash and black bayonet also represent the Group’s ability to carry out its mission in both day and night conditions.
