Space and Missile Defense Command Patch. Alpha Units. US Army

To change information
Description
On a blue shield with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) red border, 3 1/4 inches (8.26 cm) in height and 2 1/2 inches (6.35 cm) in width overall, two arced red flashes fimbriated yellow point to point between an eagle?s head in proper colors and a white demi-sphere gridlined blue issuing from base.

Symbolism
Red, white, and blue are our National colors. The eagle, our National symbol, denotes freedom and constant vigilance. The gridlined sphere symbolizes the worldwide scope of the command?s mission, while the flashes represent all-encompassing strike capability and quick response.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally authorized for U.S. Army Space and Strategic Defense Command on 21 March 1996 while the organization was a Field Operating Agency (FOA) of the Chief of Staff. It was redesignated for the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command effective 1 October 1997 as a result of a change of name and establishing the unit a Major Army Command. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-826)
