The "Ire In Adversa" pin with the demi-dragon, was the coat of arms for the 750th tank battalion out of Fort Knox in WWII. Some info on the 750 can be found at http://www.104infdiv.org/750TANK.HTM

I cannot say for a fact that the 298th Corps Support Battalion did not also use this emblem, however I know the 750 did use this emblem.

I just relieved the 298th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion here in Afghanistan. I was looking for their motto meaning and could not find it on the Army's Institute of Heraldry website; however, I found that they share their motto (Ire in Adversa) with Sir George Gabriel Stokes (1819-1903) who was an Irish-born British Mathematician and Physicist. His family motto actually means "walking through adversity" (see http://www.numericana.com/arms/stokes.htm
