We offer two types of 13th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary) Shoulder Sleeve Insignia: color and “ACU Patch.” The color patch is worn on the discontinued Army Class “A” Green uniform; we manufacture and sell the “Army Greens” to meet high demand from veterans, uniform collectors, and other groups seeking authentic insignia manufactured to exact U.S. Army specifications with 100-percent Mil-Spec materials. Our “ACU Patch,” on the other hand, is designed for wear with the ACU and other Army utility uniforms manufactured using the Universal Camouflage Pattern (UCP) or the Operational Camouflage Pattern (OCP). Note: Utility uniforms made with Universal Camouflage Pattern are not authorized for wear after 30 September 2019.

The 13th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary)’s primary mission of providing Combat Support and Combat Service Support through supply, movement control, maintenance, field service, and construction and general engineering is reflected in the design of its Shoulder Sleeve Insignia. An octagon buttressed by an interior saltire (“x”) represents strong, unshakeable support; the octagon is also an emblem of regeneration, and symbolizes the organization’s role in renewing and reviving the units it supports. A thirteen-pointed star is a nod to the Command’s numerical designation, and its extended rays are a graphical reminder of the organization’s far-reaching missions.

This insignia was originally approved in August 1966 when the unit was designated the 13th Support Brigade, but was redesignated for the 13th Corps Support Command (1975), 13th Support Command (1980), 13th Corps Support Command (1989), and finally for the organization’s current designation on 7 March 2006. It also appears on the Command's Combat Service ID Badge (CSIB).

Customers purchasing this item may wish to add the 13th Sustainment Command's Distinctive Unit Insignia (unit crest) to their shopping carts.
