Keith Schultz, commander, 307th Operations Group, after reactivation ceremonies for the 307th Bomb Wing at Barksdale Air Force Base, La., Jan. 8, 2011. Colonel Schultz is wearing the new 307th BW patch on his shoulder. As for the historic meaning of the original design, ultramarine blue is the color of the Air Forces. The four petals of the dog wood stands for the four combat squadrons of the group with the stem representing the headquarters binding the four groups together. During the same ceremonies, the 917th Operations Group was re-designated as the 917th Fighter Group and the 917th Wing was deactivated. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Travis Robertson)
