U.S. Army Patch - 11th Aviation Command - ACU

The US Army 11th Aviation Command ACU patch features a shield with a gray eagle with wings displayed and bearing on each wing an arrow. The shape of the shoulder sleeve insignia is taken from the first patch worn by the unit’s predecessor, the 11th Air Assault Division. The shield is further indicative of the protection afforded by the assigned Apache battalions. The eagle, symbolic of Army aviation, represents the superior flying ability of the Command. The arrows on the eagle’s wings allude to the numerical designation of the Command. Also, they represent speed in flight and weapons capability of the organization. The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 11th Aviation Brigade on 25 August 1987. It was designated effective 16 September 2006, for the 11th Aviation Command with the description and symbolism updated.

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