Originally constituted as the 3112th Signal Service Battalion on January 26, 1944 and activated at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey six days later, the 311th Signal Command (Theater) was inactivated from 1963 until 1996. On June 16 of that year, it was redesignated under its current title and activated at Fort George G. Meade in Maryland, and a decade later it was relocated to Fort Shafter, Hawaii.

With subordinate units in South Korea (1st Signal Brigade) and Hawaii (516th Signal Brigade), the 311th Signal Command is tasked with the maintenance and defense of the Pacific LandWarNet, the secure computer network used by the Army through the Pacific region that supports the deployment and operation of expeditionary Army units.

The 311th Signal Command’s unit patch, officially known as a Shoulder Sleeve Insignia, features a Phoenix rising from a red flame, symbolizing the unit’s “rebirth” when it was activated as a new command in 1996 (the year the insignia was approved). The demi-globe is emblematic of the Command’s worldwide reach, while the blue recalls the color of the sky, the medium through which the vast majority of modern communications take place.

If you’re purchasing the 311th Signal Command unit patch, you might also be interested in adding the Command’s Distinctive Unit Insignia, also known as a unit crest, to your order.
