332 Medical Brigade Patch. US Army

To change information
On a blue field edged white within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) maroon border, 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width and 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height overall, semicircular at top with vertical sides and a 90 degree point to base, three white five-pointed stars above a white-edged scarlet cross issuant from base with lateral arms throughout.

The white stars on a blue field refer to the State Flag of Tennessee, the unit's home area and the V-shape of the base alludes to the nickname, "Volunteer State." The scarlet cross is symbolic of medical care and the colors white and maroon are traditionally associated with the Army Medical Department. The outer shape is symbolic of medicine and surgery, the rounded top suggesting a capsule of medicine and the pointed bottom the edge of a scalpel.

The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved on 5 August 1985. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-713)
