103 Field Artillery Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
A red rectangle arced at the top and bottom, 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width and 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height overall, bearing two yellow cannon barrels saltirewise and overall a blue anchor, all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) yellow border.

Symbolism
Red and yellow are the colors traditionally used for Field Artillery. The cannon barrels crossed in saltire imply strength and allude to the unit's mission. The anchor has been adapted from the seal and flag of the State of Rhode Island and identifies the unit's home location. It also symbolizes the strength and stability of a Field Artillery unit in action.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 12 December 1984. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-700)
