71st Battlefield Surveillance Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Shoulder Sleeve Insignia

A blue (oriental blue) arrowhead shaped device 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height and 2 1/2 inches (6.35 cm) in width overall bearing two yellow (goldenlight) lightning flashes pilewise, superimposed by a black griffin’s head erased with a white eye and brow, pupil black.

The arrowhead recalls the historical lineage and association as part of the 36th Infantry Division. The oriental blue is the traditional color of Military Intelligence Corps; the griffin embodies vigilance, alertness, and courage, referring to the unique Soldiers assigned this mission. The contrast of the white and black of the griffin’s eye symbolizes overt and clandestine nature of the Battlefield Surveillance Brigade mission. The two lightning flashes represent the extraordinary mix of communication, electronic warfare, and Cavalry, this combined symbology fully represents the speed, agility, and range of target engagement capabilities of the Battlefield Surveillance Brigade force structure.

The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 29 July 2010. It was amended to change the symbolism on 22 November 2011. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-1031)
