The 4th Transportation Command Shoulder Sleeve Insignia was originally approved on 28 June 1967. It was redesignated for the 4th Transportation Brigade in early 1981, the same year that the unit would be once again (and for the last time) designated the 4th Transportation Command.

Over its 47-year history, the unit was honored with three Meritorious Unit Commendations and a Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross with Palm, and was credited with participation in four World War II and sixteen Vietnam campaigns. Before it was absorbed into 21st Theater Army Area Command in 1988, the Command’s subordinate units included the 37th Transportation Group, 1st Transportation Movement Control Agency, 205th Aviation Company, and the 570th Military Police Platoon Railway Guard.

Brick red and yellow (gold) are used for the 4th Transportation Command unit patch, reflecting the fact that throughout its history it was part of the Transportation Corps. The wheel in the center of the shield is a symbol of land movement, both by automobile and truck as well as by rail, while the trident recalls the unit’s role in transporting men and materiel by sea.
