U.S. Army Patch – 10th Mountain (Infantry) Division - ACU

The 10th Mountain Division is a light infantry division in the United States Army based at Fort Drum, New York. Originally constituted as a unique mountain warfare unit, the division was the only unit of its size in the U.S. Army to specialize in fighting in mountainous and arctic conditions. 

The 10th Mountain (Infantry) Division ACU patch features a powder keg shaped background with two bayonets crossed upwards. The bayonets are symbolic of infantry while the position of the bayonets simulates the numerical designation of the organization. The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 10th Light Division on 7 January 1944. It was designated for the 10th Mountain Division and a mountain tab was added on 22 November 1944. The authority to wear the mountain tab was rescinded 29 January 1947. The insignia was designated for the 10th Infantry Division on 14 December 1948. It was amended to change the description and symbolism on 15 November 1984. The insignia was designated for the 10th Mountain Division on 13 February 1985 and authority given to wear the mountain tab.

 This patch, for wear on the Army Combat Uniform, is sold in pairs with hook closures.
