It is quite the coincidence that the 2nd Support Command Distinctive Unit Insignia, or unit crest, uses six towers to represent six technical services involving logistics that were put forth in a study called Combat Service to the Army, or COSTAR—and that the insignia was subsequently approved on 6 June 1966, or 6-6-66.

The COSTAR inspiration is also represented by the star formed by the two crossed arrowheads at the top of the insignia; the arrows suggest the speed of delivery in two of the services, maintenance and supply. (These areas are the focus of imagery found on the Command’s Combat Service ID Badge (CSIB) and Shoulder Sleeve Insignia (unit patch).

“EXCEL ALL” is the Command motto and emphasizes the importance of success in each of the six areas of support.
