To change information
Description
On a vertical rectangular embroidered item, semicircular at top, divided vertically red and dark green, a white deployed parachute throughout, surmounting the suspension lines of the parachute two yellow lightning bolts, slanted inward on each side, overall in the center a black vertical dagger, point up; all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) black border. Overall dimensions are 3 1/8 inches (7.94 cm) in height and 2 1/2 inches (6.35 cm) in width. Attached immediately above is a black tab with the word “AIRBORNE” in red.

Symbolism
The red and dark green background suggests the Brigade’s support to Special Operations units. The lightning bolts denote combat support, combat service support, and signal elements of the command and the speed at which these missions are performed. Yellow/gold embodies the quality and value of the soldiers assigned to the unit. The parachute symbolizes the Brigade’s airborne capabilities. The black dagger represents combat readiness and the unit’s association with the United States Army Special Operations Command.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 25 March 2009. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-997)
