To change information
Description
On a rectangle arched at the top and bottom 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height and 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width overall, divided per chevron enhanced Scarlet and Celeste (Bluebird) with a chevron of two lightning bolts issuing from either side Argent, in base a Golden Yellow powder horn stringed of the same below a White polestar encircled by the string, all within a Golden Yellow 1/8 inch (.32 cm) border.

Symbolism
Light blue is one of the colors associated with the Infantry and white is for purity of purpose. Scarlet is the color of valor and sacrifice. Gold is emblematic of honor and high achievement. The chevron configuration of the two lightning bolts highlights the words “ON POINT” or to be in the lead. The lightning bolts also identify the unit’s lineage with the 78th Infantry Division’s insignia, “The Lightning Division.” The powder horn, used by our Revolutionary War Patriots, represents combat readiness as in “keeping your powder dry” and the ability to accomplish the mission. The polestar signifies guidance, leadership and alludes to the north area of our country in upper New York State, Fort Drum, Headquarters of the Brigade.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 7 September 2007. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-940)
