Non Ense Solum
Distinctive Unit Insignia
A gold color metal and enamel device 1 1/8 inches (2.86 cm) in height overall consisting of a purple homolographic globe with gold grid lines surmounted vertically by a sword with a white blade extending beyond the globe at the top and a gold hilt extending beyond the globe in base, the hilt in front of a white open scroll between two green oak leaves enarced to the left and right along the lower rim of the globe, and a black motto scroll circumscribing the upper rim of the globe and passing over the sword blade, inscribed in gold letters the Latin phrase "NON ENSE SOLUM," which is translated "Not By The Sword Alone."
Purple and white are the colors used for Civil Affairs units. The sword, scroll and globe reflect the branch insignia. The sword also simulates the Washington Monument located within the organization's home area. The oak leaves refer to strength; the sword hilt embodies the principle of control, and with the scroll signifies a determined stability not accomplished solely by force of arms. The black in the motto scroll relates to jurisprudence and the motto reflects the reconstruction aspects of the unit's mission.
The distinctive unit insignia was originally approved for the 352d Civil Affairs Area (A) on 29 July 1970. It was redesignated for the 352d Civil Affairs Command on 21 December 1976
