320th Special Tactics Squadron

Blue and yellow are the Air Force colors. Blue alludes to the sky, the primary theater of Air Force operations. Yellow refers to the sun and the excellence required of Air Force personnel. The blue disc suggests a globe and denotes the worldwide mission of the special tactics units. The qualification badge wings suggest the heritage of air commando operations during World War II and the beginning of Air Force Special Operations units. The banded arrows represent the fast response and teamwork necessary to complete the unit's work. They also define the operational capabilities of the squadron -- combat control, pararescue and operations support. The black border reflects the clandestine nature of the squadron's missions.
