U.S. Army Patch - Special Forces Group - ACU 

The Special Forces Group  ACU patch features an arrowhead which alludes to the American Indian's basic skills in which Special Forces personnel are trained to a high degree. The dagger represents the unconventional nature of Special Forces operations, and the three lightning flashes, their ability to strike rapidly by air, water or land. The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved on 22 Aug 1955. It was amended to add an airborne tab on 20 Nov 1958. The insignia was authorized to be worn by personnel of the U.S. Army Special Forces Command (Airborne) and its subordinate units not authorized a shoulder sleeve insignia in their own right on 7 Mar 1991.

This patch, meant to be worn on the Army Combat Uniform, is sold in pairs with hook closures.
