To change information
Description
On a rectangle rounded on each corner divided per bend sinister maroon and white with a 1/8 inch (.32cm) yellow border, 2 inches (5.08cm) in width and 3 inches (7.62cm) in height overall, a red cross edged white bearing a white stylized fleur-de-lis.

Symbolism
Maroon and white are the colors of the Army Medical Department, split diagonally in reference to the unit’s transition from a Medical Group to a Medical Brigade. A gold border is emblematic of excellence and valor. The red cross is a symbol of aid and comfort. The fleur-de-lis further alludes to the unit’s heritage of descent from a collecting company and service during World War II.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was authorized 16 October 2001. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-846)
