Intelligence and Security Command Patch. Alpha Units. Us Army

To change information
On a battle-axe shaped shield with point to base, 2 3/4 inches in width and 3 1/4 inches in height overall, a field divided into quarters of silver gray at upper left and lower right, and oriental blue at upper right and lower left bearing in saltire a white torch with flame at upper right crossing a white lightning flash; overall at center a vertical yellow double-webbed key with bow in base, all within a 1/8 inch wide yellow border.

The quartered field alludes to the four primary intelligence functions: collection, analysis, production and dissemination of intelligence. The lightning bolt signifies worldwide electrical communications, both friendly and hostile, and the torch stands for knowledge and vigilance. The double-webbed key is symbolic of security and control. Gold and silver (yellow and white) denotes achievement and energy; gray and blue determination and loyalty.

The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved on 6 Apr 77 and revised to change the color from teal blue to oriental blue on 27 May 88. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-611)
