Default Your Army shoulder patch...what does it represent?



Advertise Here

The last one I wore in the Army:



The Mountain Tab is provided with the patch, I was one of the few who'd actually done something on a mountain. The shape of the patch represents a powder keg, the crossed bayonets are for the roman numeral ten.

Does everyone know the symbolism behind their patches? I wore another unit patch that is wonderful but I didn't know the symbolism then and never thought about it until years later.

The shape of the patch, that a powder keg symbolizes the explosive power contained within.

The blue background and the bayonets are symbolic of the infantry.

The position of the bayonets in saltire (crossed) symbolizes the Roman numeral ten (X), the numerical designation of the origination (10th Mountain)

The patch is worn with the points up, never down.

In December of 1944 the 10th Mountain Division received the "Mountain Rocker", however the patch was not issued until May of 1945.

This was our DUI, the Wonder Woman shield.

We were a patriotic looking bunch in our class A's.

2ID and 504th BfSB patches. Likely to be wearing the "Toujours Pret" patch of the 2nd Cavalry Regiment in a few months. Either that or the 4th ID patch.

The last 4 years I was in I am not sure I ever wore a uniform except to check in and to check out of my command. Mostly just shorts and t shirts or flight suits.

Duck and cover!



"Symbolism: Scarlet and gold (yellow) are the colors used for field artillery; blue denotes the assigned infantry support. The destructive power and target capability of the Pershing missile are suggested by the red disc at center and the upright missile signifies the readiness of the unit. The lightning flashes refer to the ability of the missile team to act and strike quickly in event of need."
