8th Sustainment Command Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
On a white shield 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width and 2 3/4 inches (6.99 cm) in height overall with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) white border four red wedges pointing inward from each side and from top and bottom and centered thereon a large blue eight-pointed star.

Symbolism
The pattern of red and white is adapted from the Eighth Army shoulder sleeve insignia and the manner in which the wedges enclose the star is suggestive of the support mission. The blue star, symbolic of command, has eight points signifying the Command’s numerical designation.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the Eighth Field Army Support Command on 3 May 1968. It was redesignated for the 8th Sustainment Command on 6 December 2005. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-493)
