Symbolism
Buff and scarlet are the colors associated with Army Support. The keystone represents the unit’s home state, Pennsylvania, the Keystone State, and the heart is adapted from the Group’s hometown symbol, Allentown. The scarlet arrowhead signifies the unit’s participation in the spearhead attack in the World War II Naples-Foggia Campaign. Scarlet reflects artillery heritage. The compass rose or star highlights the ability to provide support in any direction within the Group’s assigned area. The stars commemorate the participation of wartime service in the Civil War, War with Spain, World War I, World War II, Korea, and the War on Terrorism. The quad arrow represents the unit’s mission to provide support to all the varying branches of the Army, especially the Combat Service.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 10 April 2007. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-921)
