Asymmetric Warfare Group Patch. Alpha Units. US Army

To change information
Shoulder Sleeve Insignia

On a black circular device edged with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) black border, a red horizontal arrow, pointing to the left. Overall dimension is 2 1/4 inches (5.72 cm) in diameter.

The circle represents the Group’s worldwide operations. Black denotes the unknown nature of future threats. The arrow alludes to the archer who took the battlefield from two to three dimensions in early warfare. It also signifies the Indian Wars, one of the first asymmetric threats the United States Army faced. Red symbolizes aggressive action. The position of the arrow, pointing forward when worn on the uniform sleeve, suggests forward vision, thinking, and action.

The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 16 October 2006. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-897)
