22 Support Command Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
On a blue shield 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height and 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width overall, two yellow quills vertically, side by side, one curved to the left and one to the right, with their points touching two yellow arrowheads in base, within a yellow 1/8 inch (.32 cm) border.

Symbolism
The quill is used in heraldry to represent calm, willing performance and was used in ancient times as symbolizing air, light and knowledge. The arrowhead is representative of swiftness and in heraldry, symbolizes martial readiness, the symbol most indicative of the 22d Field Army Support Command, the former unit.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 22d Field Army Support Command on 18 October 1966. It was redesignated for the 22d Support Command with the description and symbolism revised effective 16 December 1990. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-439)
