4th Infantry Division Subdued Shoulder Patch
The 4th Infantry Division was worn from 30 Otcober 1918 to Present.
The Fourth Division was organized at Camp Greene, North Carolina in 1917. The four leaves allude to the numerical designation of the Division while the word "I-VY" as pronounced, suggests the characters used in the formation of the Roman numeral "IV." Ivy leaves are also symbolic of fidelity and tenacity. The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved on October 30, 1918 for the 4th Division without any background specified for the ivy leaf design. The design was embroidered on a square olive background (color of the uniform). On July 2, 1958, the design was changed to reflect the light khaki color background. It was redesignated for the 4th Infantry Division effective August 4, 1943.
Campaigns: World War I, World War II, Vietnam, Iraq.
Decorations: Belgian Fourragere World War II. Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross with Palm 1966-1970, Republic of Vietnam Civil Actions Honor Medal First Class 1966-1969.
