U.S. Army Military Intelligence Corps Regimental Distinctive Insignia
U.S. Army Military Intelligence Corps Regimental Insignia
The Military Intelligence Corps Regimental insignia was approved on 28 July 1986 for use by soldiers affiliated with the Military Intelligence Corps. All Corps Regimental insignias are worn over the right breast pocket on the Class A uniform signifying each service member’s unique branch of service.
The Military Intelligence Corps Regimental insignia displays the colors oriental blue and silver gray, with the key, flash and sphinx symbolizing the three basic categories of intelligence: human, signal, and tactical. The flaming torch between the crossed swords of the crest suggests the illumination as provided by Intelligence upon the field of battle. The motto "ALWAYS OUT FRONT" reflects the forward location in gathering intelligence information.
Gathering vital information assets and operational knowledge, the US Army Military Intelligence Corps provides critical support for America’s troops across the globe. Whether they are engaged in aerial surveillance using the latest drone technology or developing a human asset for counter-intelligence, the Military Intelligence Corps are a crucial part in today’s armed forces.
Since the earliest wars, military commanders have always wanted to be able to "see over the next hill." Those who held the high ground, the commanding position, could see with their own eyes what the opposing army was doing and could concentrate forces at the enemy's weak points and often order a decisive attack. Military Intelligence lets commanders "see over the next hill" by using satellites, spy planes, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), and even cameras, then analyzing the data to determine enemy intent and capability.
