Army Ground Forces Regulation Military Patch
Worn: 11 March 1942 - Current.
A disk consisting of three horizontal stripes (red, white, and blue) was personnally selected in World War I by General Pershing for wear by all personnel assigned to General Headquarters, American Expeditionary Forces. The source of the design is said to have been the red, white, and blue horizontally striped brassard worn as a distinguishing mark by staff officerswhen moving about on duty in congested areas at the front in World War I. In 1941, the brassard prescribed for General Headquarters, American Expeditionary Forces consisted of three stripes of blue, white, and red, the blue uppermost. Therefore, the shoulder-sleeve insignia was authorized to be worn with the blue uppermost to conform to the manner of wearing the brassard.
Our Army Ground Forces 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.
