Shoulder Sleeve Insignia

Description
A vertical rectangular embroidered item, divided diagonally from upper right to lower left, ultramarine blue and red, the sides arched outwardly, consisting of a diagonal yellow lightning bolt throughout, placed on the division line, surmounted by a yellow cannon diagonally from upper left to lower right, in the center a white disc edged black bearing a black disc, all between a pair of dice, one on each side, the left displaying “6” and the right “5”; all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) black border. Overall dimensions are 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height and 2 3/8 inches (6.03 cm) in width.

Symbolism
Scarlet and yellow are the colors traditionally associated with Field Artillery. Blue denotes the Fires Brigade combat multipliers, the joint sections and mission with the Air Force and Marine Corps. The lightning bolt represents speed and striking power, identifying the other elements of the Brigade, both lethal and non-lethal effects. The cannon signifies the unit’s primary mission. The center black disc indicates munitions. The combination of the white and black disc alludes to the Brigade’s past affiliation as I Corps Artillery. The dice refers to the unit’s commitment to accomplish any combat operations, also depicting the unit’s designation “65.”

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved effective 1 September 2009. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-1002)
