The strong right hand of the personnel is representative of their trustworthiness. The motto is in the nature of a warning to enemy objectives.

The distinctive unit insignia was originally approved for the 376th Parachute Field Artillery Battalion on 22 January 1943. It was redesignated for the 376th Airborne Field Artillery Battalion on 14 July 1952.
