Engineer Center and Fort Leonard Wood and School Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
On a scarlet lozenge with rounded corners, 2 inches (5.08cm) in width and 3 inches (7.62cm) in height, a torch surmounted by a castle, all white.

Symbolism
The colors scarlet and white are traditionally used for the Corps of Engineers. The castle is taken from the Corps of Engineers Insignia. The torch represents the training mission.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the U.S. Army Engineer Center and Fort Belvoir on 11 Feb 1959. It was amended on 19 Jun 1981 to extend authorization for wear to personnel assigned to the U. S. Army Engineer School. The School was relocated to Fort Leonard Wood, MS on 1 Jun 1988 and the insignia was redesignated for the U.S. Army Engineer Center and Fort Leonard Wood. It continues to be authorized for wear by the U. S. Army Engineer School. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-278)
