804 Medical Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
On a white hexagon one point up, with a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) maroon border, 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height and 2 1/8 inches (5.40 cm) in width, a maroon cross throughout bearing a yellow six-pointed star.

Symbolism
Maroon and white are the colors traditionally associated with the Medical Corps. The cross reflects medical aid and assistance while the gold star expresses excellence and achievement. The six-pointed star, echoed by the hexagon configuration of the insignia, alludes to the six New England states comprising the unit's command.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 804th Hospital Center on 17 July 1990. It was redesignated for the 804th Medical Brigade on 8 April 1999. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-780)
