The unit that brought this pod (The 149th FW) said they had several customized pods, depending on which Univiserity they went to visit (They were doing a flyover at an A&M game the next day). I'm guessing also it has to do with alumni in the unit.

I painted three pods for the 93FS some years back, each for a different commander with a distinctive color scheme. The General ‘s was all metal flake blue with a silver star on each side, the OPS commander was black with a silver checker board on each end, and the OG commander was the wing colors of blue and red. I painted the names in silver on each one.
The maintenance guys wanted something special made so I presented my ideas to the maintenance officer and he pretty much said go for it.

Hasegawa 1/72 Aircraft Weapons :1 U.S. bombs and rocket launchers # X72-1
They have 2X BLU-27 napalm bombs.
All you have to do is remove the fins on the back and scribe in a door on the side and you have a travel pod.

If you can't find it send me a PM with address, I'll send you one.

Same thing, the original pods were napalm tanks, with a door and some extra bracing installed. Now they have a new one that looks the same on the outside, so what you have will work.
Here's a couple of picture of one of the pods I painted for the 93FS.

Nice pair huh :D
