To change information
Shoulder Sleeve Insignia

Description
On a shield shaped embroidered item, blazoned as follows: Per pale Gules and Vert, a compass rose Sable fimbriated Or, charged in centre point with an eagle’s head erased Proper, between on each directional point playing card symbols - in chief a club, a spade and heart fesswise Argent and in base a Torii gate Gules; all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) Black border. Overall dimensions are 2 7/8 inches (7.30 cm) in height by 2 3/4 inches (6.99 cm) in width.

Symbolism
The shield is adapted from the 101st Airborne Division, the 101st Sustainment Brigade’s origin. Black suggests steadfastness and strength. The compass rose and rope symbolize the global directional support to forces anytime, anywhere under all conditions. The eagle’s head, adapted from the 101st Airborne Division’s shoulder sleeve insignia, alludes to the unit’s airborne status when it was founded. The playing card symbols and the Torii gate allude to the original symbols painted on the 101st soldiers’ helmets during World War II.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 17 November 2009. It was amended to correct the description on 17 March 2011. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-1005)
