U.S. Army Patch - 3rd Cavalry Regiment - ACU 

The 3rd Cavalry Regiment ACU patch features a disc with a border, a trumpet bound with a cord and with a mouthpiece up in front of and extending above a scroll of three loops. The scroll bears the word "Brave" to the left of the trumpet, the word "Rifles" to the right of the trumpet, and the numeral "3" immediately below the trumpet bell. The device on the disc is similar to the Regiment’s distinctive insignia. 

The words "Brave Rifles" are from the accolade given the Regiment by General Winfield Scott, Commanding General of the Army, for its action at Chapultepec during the Mexican War. The shoulder sleeve insignia has been worn by the Regiment since 1944, when it was recognized for wear by General George S. Patton, Commanding General, Third United States Army and 28th Colonel of Regiment, 1938-1940. The insignia was originally approved for the 3d Armored Cavalry Regiment on 12 June 1967. It was designated effective 16 November 2011, for the 3d Cavalry Regiment with the description updated. 

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