108 Sustainment Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
On a buff pentagon-shaped embroidered device a red wheel with six spokes surmounted on the rim 13 white stars, a blue hub bearing throughout a white “Y” all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) red border. Overall dimensions are 2 3/4 inches (6.99 cm) in width and 2 3/4 inches (6.99 cm) in height.

Symbolism
Red and buff are the colors traditionally used by Sustainment units. Red, white, and blue are the national colors. The sides of the pentagon-shape allude to the armed branches of service: Army, Marines, Air Force, Navy, and Coast Guard. The wheel signifies the Brigade’s logistical mission and the six spokes denote the subordinate units within the Brigade. Teamed together they possess the ability to move the “Wheel of Logistics” in order to sustain the force. The stars represent the original thirteen colonies and the nation’s heritage. The “Y” suggests the joining point of the Chicago River and North Branch Rivers, landmarks in Chicago and the location of the 108th Sustainment Brigade.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 13 November 2006. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-904)
