To change information
Shoulder Sleeve Insignia

Description
On an oval embroidered item, at base a pair of yellow elevated wings with scarlet details, surmounted by a yellow Roman cuirass, overall in the center a sword, point up, with a black hilt, pommel and hand guard, with a white blade, dark blue stripe in the middle, surmounted on the hand guard a yellow star bearing a white star outlined black; all within a yellow border. Overall dimensions are 3 1/4 inches (8.26 cm) in height and 2 3/4 inches (6.99 cm) in width.

Symbolism
The oval shaped insignia alludes to the continuous cycle of support to all Soldiers. The gold wings with the red details indicate the bloodshed by the Soldiers in the defense of the nation’s freedom. The Roman cuirass denotes security. The sword symbolizes military preparedness. The detail in the middle of the blade illustrates the Twin Towers, signifying the attacks that transformed the Army Reserve to an operational force widely used in the Global War on Terrorism. The star placed at the base represents ground zero. It serves to remind us that the foundation of the Army Reserve strength is built upon its Citizen Warriors.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 3 September 2009. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-1013)
