371 st Sustainment Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
On a buff vertical octagonal-shaped embroidered device, arcing outwardly at top and bottom, a blue wavy horizontal band bearing three buff stars, between in base an arrowhead and in chief a polestar, all red; all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) red border. Overall dimensions are 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width and 3 inches (7.62 cm) in length.

Symbolism
Buff and red are the colors traditionally used by the Sustainment units. The wavy band suggests water, alluding to a “large creek,” the meaning of the name Ohio and the location of the Brigade. The three stars represent the unit’s campaign credits in World War I, World War II, and the Global War on Terrorism. The arrowhead signifies the Brigade’s service in the fight for Luzon during World War II and the motto “Logistic Warriors.” The polestar denotes the unit’s leadership to guide service members and deployment capabilities worldwide.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved effective 1 September 2007. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-923)
