157 Maneuver Enhancement Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
Centered on a vertical rectangle arched at top and bottom, 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width and 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height overall, a scarlet arrowhead, its point upon the center of a blue gunsight symbol (a circle over crossed vertical and horizontal centerlines) and below the arrowhead three blue waves, all on a yellow background within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) scarlet border.

Symbolism
Scarlet and yellow are the colors associated with Field Artillery and recall the predecessor’s designation. The arrowhead and gunsight symbolize the basic mission of the former Brigade and the waves in base refer to the many waterways of the State of Wisconsin, which is an Indian word meaning “gathering of the waters.” The red arrowhead also denotes the unit’s long association with the 32d Infantry Division.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 57th Field Artillery Brigade on 25 October 1979. It was redesignated effective 1 September 2008, for the 157th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade with the description and symbolism updated. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-648)
