142 Fires Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
A circular device 2 3/4 inches (6.99 cm) in diameter overall, consisting of a yellow vertical projectile on a blue background surmounted by a red diamond, long axis horizontal, bearing a yellow diagonal stripe from upper left to lower right, all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) yellow border.

Scarlet and yellow are the traditional colors of Field Artillery organizations. The diamond shape and blue background refer to Arkansas, the unit's home state, and the gold diagonal stripe on the scarlet background, from the coat of arms of the Marquis de la Fayette, alludes to Fayetteville, Arkansas, the headquarters location. The projectile indicates the unit's mission and firepower potential.

The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 7 September 1978. It was redesignated effective 3 September 2006, for the 142d Fires Brigade with the description updated. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-624)
