Sergeants Major Academy Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
On an Army green shield 2 1/4 inches (5.72cm) in width and 3 1/4 inches (8.26cm) in length overall, a gold color torch with scarlet flame, the stem of the torch surmounted by a gold color five-pointed star within an open gold color laurel wreath, all within a 1/8 inch (.32cm) Army green border.

Symbolism
The shield is symbolic of confidence, boldness and protection. The wreath and star simulate, and were suggested by, the insignia of grade associated with that of command sergeant major; the star is emblematic of guidance and the laurel wreath of achievement and merit. The torch symbolizes leadership, education and training and the flame alludes to zeal and action. The color gold signifies excellence and wisdom; and the color Army green alludes to the all-Army purpose of the Academy; it also is symbolic of faithfulness and obedience.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 2 Feb 1973. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-559)
