[Gen'l Info] US Army Shoulder Patches

Suddenly it becomes obvious that our subject listing of "wars" (which stops at Gulf War) is out-dated by today's overseas deployments in the Near/Mid-East, while "history" continues!

In any case, I wanted to share a proud moment in the life of today's Virginia Army National Guard, and, specifically, the newly returned members of the 3rd BN, 116th INF REGT, 29th DIV, back from Afghanistan. The Army has authorized them to wear their distinctive blue-gray "yang-yin" patch on the right sleeve, as symbolic of their overseas service, according to an article by Meredith Bonny in the "Richmond Times-Dispatch," 9 Dec 2004.
