1st Field Force Vietnam Subdued Patch
Worn: 8 October 1966 - 30 April 1971.
The one Diagonal refers to the numerical designation of the I Field Force. The sword, in "piercing" the red area, alludes to the constant probing of enemy territory and positions and the driving back and crushing of enemy forces. The colors, red, white, and blue are the national colors of the United States, and the colors yellow and red are those of Vietnam. The colors blue, red, and yellow are also those of the three major combat arms: infantry, artillery, and armor.The silhouette of the shield is shaped like a battle0ax to symbolize the smashing power of the I Field Force and the constant combat readiness of its personnel to engage the enemy. The battle-ax shape, in itself, is also an additional I Field Force identification.
