  • It seems that insignia is for the Air National Guard as a whole, not a particular unit. The minuteman is the emblem of the National Guard, and is a stylized drawing of the minuteman statue in Concord Massachusetts:

  • The minuteman emblem for the National Guard is appropriate since the Guard is essentially descended from the minutemen, which was the Massachusetts Colony militia at the time of the revolution. The Guard therefore claims to be the oldest military unit in the United States.
  • The two fighter planes specify the Air Force National Guard, as opposed to the whole National Guard.

The minuteman emblem for the National Guard is appropriate since the Guard is essentially descended from the minutemen, which was the Massachusetts Colony militia at the time of the revolution.  The Guard therefore claims to be the oldest military unit in the United States.

The two fighter planes specify the Air Force National Guard, as opposed to the whole National Guard.
