91st Missile Maintenance Squadron, Missile Maintenance Flight (91 MMXF) – Team Chief

    This patch is from the Facilities Maintenance Shop (FMS) in the squadron’s Missile Maintenance Flight.  The FMS contains two separate functions within the shop which dispatch into the missile field:  Facilities Maintenance Teams (FMTs) and Periodic Maintenance Teams (PMTs).  FMTs troubleshoot and fix problems related to power and environmental control systems.  PMTs do the 1-3 year periodic maintenance on power and environmental control systems, like yearly coolant and oil changes.  The skull and two pistons with flames is the FMS’s logo.  The two missiles represent the Minuteman III ICBM. The globe represents the reach and capability of the weapons system.  The title Team Chief is given to the leaders of the FMTs and PMTs which consist of anywhere from 2-10 members per team.  Ranks of the Team Chiefs vary between Senior Airman (E4) up to Technical Sergeant (E6).  Once the position of Team Chief is attained, the individual is given one of these patches as a morale booster.  It was designed by Logan Lambert, a member of the unit, who writes that, to date (as of 2020), “23 total patches were handed out, out of 60 made.”
