Following its formation in 1917 in the Missouri National Guard as the 5th Separate Company of Infantry and subsequent organization at Sedalia, the unit that went on to become the 135th Field Artillery Brigade would find itself attached to the 35th Division—later designated the 35th Infantry Division—more often than not during the decades that carried the U.S. through two World Wars and the Korea War.

 In April 1963, while designated as the HQ Battery, 2nd Howitzer Batalion, 128th Artillery as part of the 35th Infantry Division, the unit was reorganized and redesignated as HQ and HQ Battery, 135th Artillery Group, and relieved from assignment to the 35th for the final time. A little over a decade later, its designation was tweaked from “Artillery Group” to “Field Artillery Group,” and only in 1978 was it given its current designation as a Field Artillery Brigade.

The color unit patch, or Shoulder Sleeve Insignia, was primarily won on the Service “A” and “B” uniforms (the “A” is better-known as the Army Greens); when its wear was discontinued, the Army continued the tradition by creating the Combat Service ID Badge for wear on the new Army Service Uniform. The subdued insignia is worn with the Army Combat Uniform and other utility uniforms.
