To change information
Description
A rectangle with long axis vertical and arched at each end, 3 inches (7.62 cm) in height and 2 inches (5.08 cm) in width, and having within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) yellow border a field divided equally with scarlet above white; on the scarlet half two crossed swords with white blades and yellow hilts and on the white half a red saltire.

Symbolism
The red crossbars in the lower section suggest the unit’s basic mission of support to combat units, represented by the crossed swords in the red field above. The red saltire also refers to the State of Alabama, the unit’s home state.

Background
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 167th Support Brigade on 15 July 1969. It was redesignated for the 167th Support Command on 4 August 1976. The insignia was redesignated effective 16 September 2006, for the 167th Sustainment Command with the description updated. (TIOH Dwg. No. A-1-522)
