The plaque represents the shield of the United States.  The Lightning Bolt symbolizes Air Force Communications and this group in particular.  The Punjabi Shoe symbolizes the traveler.  The Mystic Lamp is the lamp that lights his way.  The Handclasp symbolizes the warm welcome received at the journeys end, in this instance the northwest frontier area of West Pakistan.  The expression "Khair Sagalie" is a combination of Persian and Urdu and means goodwill".
