7 Corps Area Service Command Patch. US Army

To change information
Shoulder Sleeve Insignia

Description
A white seven pointed star 2 1/4 inches (5.72cm) in diameter with one point up pierced by a similar figure 1 1/16 inches (2.70cm) in diameter with one point down, all on a dark blue disc background 2 1/2 inches (6.35cm) in diameter.

Symbolism
The design is arbitrarily selected to represent the 7th Corps Area Service Command. White, being a mixture of all colors, has been 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 7th Service Command Headquarters was located in Omaha, Nebraska and the Command was responsible for the states of Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North and South Dakota and Wyoming. The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved on 18 Jul 1941. It was amended on 18 Sep 1941 to change the description. On 14 Oct 1941 the insignia was amended to change the background color from olive drab to dark blue.
