The 13th Corps Patch was worn from 7 June 1923 to 5 June 1970.
The XIII corps was activated in 1942 at Providence, Rhode Island. The four leaf clover is for good luck and as displayed the four leaves make an "I". The three states in the Corps Area, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia, are represented by the triangle and as the original white population of the three was English the triangle is made red. The three sides of the triangle together with the green "X" make up the number "13". The shoulder sleeve insignia was approved for the 13th Corps on 7 Jun 1923. It was redesignated for the XIII U. S. Army Corps on 1 May 1958.
Campaigns: World War II
Our 13th Corps 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.
