To change information
Description
On a vertical rectangle embroidered item, diagonally divided blue and red from upper right to lower left and arched outwardly at the top, a white lightning bolt issuing from upper right to lower left between a white compass rose above a white deployed parachute below; all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) blue border. Overall dimensions are 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width and 3 inches (7.62 cm) in length.

Symbolism
Red, white, and blue, the national colors, recall the conception and activation of the Brigade in the 82d Airborne Division and the fifty years of lineage to the Division. The compass rose denotes the Brigade’s direction of maintaining and protecting the nation’s security. The lightning bolt represents the power and swiftness of the unit to deploy. The deployed parachute symbolizes the area of operation that the Brigade supports.

Background
