USPACOM's massive area of responsibility covers approximately half of the earth's surface and traverses sixteen time zones, from the mainland of America's west coast to the east coast of Africa and from the Arctic to the Antarctic, including the states of Alaska and Hawaii. As a joint combatant command of the U.S. Military, USPACOM units advance U.S. interests in peace and war, providing rapid-response capabilities to meet and overcome threats to America's security.

The obverse depicts USPACOM's official emblem, which features a globe and compass design, symbolic of the command's enormous area of responsibility.
