The embattled divide of the background represents the defense of ground forces. The caricature of the coyote, common around the unit's home base at Holloman, is an animal noted for its clever pursuit of prey and its adaptability to a wide variety of geographical and climatic conditions. The coyote, positioned in both fields in recognition of the unit's forward air and land defense responsibilities, is a fitting mascot for this mobile tactical unit.
