7 th Sustainment Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
On a brick red shield within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) golden yellow border, 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height and 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width overall, issuing from the center point throughout seven golden yellow rays surmounted by a blue chess-rook.

Symbolism
The rays issuing from the center of the shield refer to the receiving and dispersal of personnel and cargo. The rays are seven in number in reference to the numerical designation of the organizations. The “rook” is the chess piece for a castle, medieval stronghold of fighting men and supplies. The name is derived from the Persian word “rokh”, meaning a soldier, and is used to represent the military troops and equipment being transferred from one mode of transportation to another at the organization. Blue, the Infantry color, refers to the organization’s capability of defending itself as Infantry against hostile ground attack. Brick red and golden yellow are for the Transportation Corps, the original designation of the unit.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 7th Transportation Command on 3 April 1967. It was authorized for wear by personnel of the 7th Transportation Group on 1 March 1984. It was redesignated for the 7th Sustainment Brigade, with the description and symbolism updated, effective 17 October 2006. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-448)
