To change information
Description
On a scarlet quatrefoil 2 1/2 inches (6.35 cm) in diameter, a yellow wheel surmounted by a yellow cross potent with a curved fin-like segment issuing from each end, all with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) yellow border.

Symbolism
Scarlet and yellow are used for Artillery. The wheel and cross potent (simulating the muzzles of guns in action) symbolize the basic mission of the organization. In addition, the numerical designation of the unit is indicated by the quatrefoil, two colors, and the eight segments between the spokes of the wheel and cross.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 23 October 1979. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-628)
