124th Regional Support Command

Sleeve Insignia

Description

On a red disc within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) green border 2 1/2 inches (6.35 cm) in diameter overall, issuing from the top between two white five-pointed stars and surmounting two white horizontal bars, a green wedge point to base bordered white and bearing a larger white five-pointed star. 

Symbolism

The three stars above the two bars and the colors red and white were suggested by the coat of arms of George Washington, whose portrait appears on the state flag of Washington and for whom the state is named. The color green also refers to the state of Washington which is known as the "Evergreen State," the wedge shape and surrounding border alluding to the state's abundant forests. The center star is depicted larger than the other two to emphasize the command and supervision of the organization.

Background

The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 124th U.S. Army Reserve Command on 7 August 1968. It was reassigned and authorized effective 16 April 1996, for the U.S. Army 124th Regional Support Command.
