196 Field Artillery Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
Description
On a red shield arched at top and bottom, 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width and 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height overall, a yellow diagonal stripe extending over the shield from upper left to lower right bearing a black cannon barrel and in the upper right a blue disc bearing three stars within a white border; all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) yellow border.

Symbolism
Scarlet and yellow are the colors used for Artillery. The vertical band, known as a "bend" in heraldry, is an allusion to the bend in the Tennessee River known as Moccasin Bend which is in Chattanooga, the home of the Brigade headquarters. The gun barrel represents the basic mission, and the blue disc with the three stars, adapted from the state flag of Tennessee, further alludes to the home area of the organization.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 23 January 1979. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-632)
