78th Aviation Troop Command Patch. US Army (Georgia National Guard)

To change information
Description
A shield-shaped embroidered item 3 1/16 inches (7.78 cm) in height and 2 5/8 inches (6.67 cm) in width overall edged with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) Golden Orange border blazoned as follows: Azure, on a pile Tenné (Golden Orange), an image of a minuteman issuant, head in profile Brün (Brown), in base a vol Argent.

Symbolism
Golden orange and ultramarine blue are the colors traditionally associated with Aviation units. The pile denotes fortitude. Brown alludes to the aerial authority of the 78th Aviation Troop Command service members. The image of the minuteman, issuing at the top, alludes to the ascending of a new National Guard unit. The wings signify flight and swiftness, and being below the image indicates the conception of “giving wings to the minuteman.”

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 5 May 2011. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-1052)
