Does any one know the meaning of "Halo Red" on this subdued NASA/JSC WB-57F patch?

According to PlaneSpotters.net, Halo Red missions were flights using NASA's WB-57 aircraft with the space agency's markings removed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom out of Kandahar, Afghanistan.
NASA's WB-57Fs are no longer used in this capacity, having been replaced with other BACN-equipped platforms such as the Bombardier E-11A and Northrop Grumman EQ-4B.
