6th Army Patch
The 6th Army Patch was worn from 26 January 1927 to 1957.
The Sixth United States Army was activated in January 1943 at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. The Sixth is credited with the liberation of Manila during World War II. The six-pointed star is significant of the number "six" and the red letter "A" signifies "Army". The red and white colors are the colors of the design approved for distinguishing flags for the numbered Armies. The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved on 26 Jan 1927. The original insignia was cancelled, redesigned and approved on 10 Jan 1945. On 6 Dec 1960 the shoulder sleeve insignia was amended to change the background color from olive drab to Army Green.
Campaigns: World War II
Decorations: Army Meritorious Unit Commendation, Philippine Presidential Unit Citation.
