45th Infantry Division Patch
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 45th Division on 22 May 1939.
The predecessor organization of the 45th Infantry Brigade (45th Division) was composed of Army National Guard troops of Colorado, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Arizona. As the territory was originally explored and settled by the Spanish, the insignia is gold and red, the Spanish colors. The "Thunderbird" is an Indian symbol meaning sacred bearer of happiness unlimited. The four sides of the insignia represent the four states comprising the predecessor Division.
Campaigns: World War II and Korean War.
Decorations: Frech Croix de Guerre with Palm- WW II, Republic of Korea Presidential Unit Citation.
Our 45th Division patch is a regulation, full color, embroidered military patch. This is the same patch that is supplied to the U.S. Army, Army National Guard, Army Reserve units, and sold in the Army Post Exchanges. This patch would be a great gift idea and a wonderful addition to your patch collection.
