38 Sustainment Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
A shield shaped embroidered device 3 3/4 inches (9.53 cm) in height by 3 inches (7.62 cm) in width overall consisting of a shield divided per pale dark blue and scarlet upon a larger shield counterchanged; on the smaller shield three gold barrulets bendwise surmounted by a white scimitar point up, surrounded by an orle of nineteen white stars edging the larger shield, all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) gold border.

Symbolism
The blue and red shield is derived from the shoulder sleeve insignia of the 38th Infantry Division, which the unit supports. The scimitar represents service in the Persian Gulf where the Brigade deployed as a stand-alone unit in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The three gold bars symbolize active Federal service in three wars, World Wars I and II and the Global War on Terror. The stars represent Indiana, the nineteenth state in the Union. Red, white, and blue are the traditional colors of the 38th Division, as well as the flag of the United States. Blue and gold are the colors of the Indiana state flag and of the shoulder sleeve insignia of the Indiana National Guard State Headquarters.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 10 December 2008. It was amended to correct the dimensions on 27 January 2009. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-988)
