The wings represent the crew member status that we all shared. The wings are shaded black in memory of our friends and fellow crew members who gave all. The Air Medal is a thread that binds us together. It is universal among the various U.S. and allied services that served in RVN. The compass rose with cardinal points that surround the medallion of the Air Medal point to all locations of the world where our members live. The banner is red and yellow in the colors of the RVN flag. The letters are self explanatory.
