While I was stationed in Misawa, Japan, a friend of mine made an unofficial unit patch for fun. In the background was a surface ship, a submarine, a spark and quill (our rate insignia), and in the foreground was a picture of a blue devil with snow and ice hanging from his horns and pitchfork. The motto around the outside of the image was - 
"NSGA Misawa - We've been to Hell... and it snows there too!"
Naval Security Group Activity, Misawa

"We won't fight & you can't make us!"
(US Army Security Agency Special Activities Detachment 3).
In the early 70's, I was with a small intelligence unit in PyongTaek South Korea.
The Vietnam War was still going on & most of the guys had enlisted in the
Army Security Agency specifically to avoid this SE Asian garden spot.
Although the official motto of the unit was "Vigilus Salutus" (Always Vigilant),
we adopted out own.
We also threatened to have unit patches made that had "I surrender" in several dozen foreign
languages AND braille.

(Thanks to Mr. Robinson)
