Korean Communications Zone Patch. Alpha Units. US Army

To change information
Description
A green shield with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) white border, 2 3/4 inches (6.99 cm) in height and 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width; issuing from base a fire beacon, white with orange flames.

Symbolism
The beacon fire is symbolic of the old Korean system of communications. Until 1885 there were five lines of beacon fires around the country by means of which messages could reach the capital from the most distant points in a few hours. A flaming light is also a symbol of liberty.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 21 April 1953. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-197)
