2 Service Command Patch. US Army

To change information
Shoulder Sleeve Insignia

Description
Two white interlocked hollow squares 1 3/8 (3.49cm) inches overall, all members 3/8 inch (.95cm) in width, all on a 2 1/4 inch (5.72cm) square dark blue background.

Symbolism
The design was arbitrarily selected to represent the 2d Corps Area Service Command. White, being a mixture of all colors, was selected for the reason that Corps Area Service Commands may be composed of all arms and services. The geometric design represents the Command's numeric designation.

Background
The 2d Corps Area Service Command Headquarters was located in New York City, New York, and the Command was responsible for the states of New Jersey and New York. The 2d Command patch was approved by the Adjutant General Office on 18 Jul 1941. On 7 Jan 1942 the shoulder sleeve insignia was amended to change the color of the background from olive drab to dark blue.
