43 Sustainment Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
On a buff colored vertical rectangular embroidered item, arched outwardly at top and bottom, a red diagonal stripe from upper left to lower right, between a white compass rose upper right and stylized buff mountain range of five peaks with white snowcapped with dark gray details; all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) yellow border. Overall dimensions are 2 1/16 inches (5.24 cm) in width and 3 1/16 inches (7.78 cm) in height.

Symbolism
Buff and scarlet are the colors traditionally associated with the Support units. The diagonal stripe suggests protection. The compass rose signifies guidance and the unit’s capability to deploy worldwide. The stylized mountain range denotes Fort Carson, Colorado, home of the unit since 1966. The five peaks allude to the five campaigns fought by the 43d Corps and Area Support Groups, predecessors to the 43d Sustainment Brigade.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved effective 16 April 2008. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-935)
