The 108 Air Defense Artillery Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Shoulder Sleeve Insignia

Description
On a blue rectangle arched at the top and bottom 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height and 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width overall, within a crenellated border of yellow, a pheon of the like point up, all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) red border.

Symbolism
Scarlet and yellow are the colors traditionally associated with Air Defense Artillery. The crenellated configuration of the border indicates a strong defensive position. The blue center symbolizes the sky and the pheon alludes to the unit’s striking capabilities; thus, the design elements embody the unit’s mission. They also refer to the unit’s location, Kaiserslautern, Germany, which derives its name from a local stream (the blue area) and a castle built on the site in the 12th Century (the crenellated border).

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 7 December 1983. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-683)
