Description
On a rectangular background with rounded top and bottom 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height and 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width, divided per pale nebuly white and blue; the white portion extending around the edge of the blue portion to form a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) border; two bayonets 2 5/16 inches (5.87 cm) in height with points up, counterchanged blue on white and white on blue.

Symbolism
The blue is for Infantry and the bayonets also indicate that the organization is an Infantry unit, while the nebuly division is representative of clouds and indicates that the organization was Airborne.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 2d Airborne Infantry Brigade on 4 August 1944. It was abolished on 31 January 1947. The insignia was reinstated and redesignated for the 2d Infantry Brigade and amended to delete the airborne tab on 2 May 1958. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-276)
