The 93rd Signal Brigade’s unit patch, officially known as its Shoulder Sleeve Insignia, features a nine-pointed star and three lighting flashes that symbolize both the unit’s numerical designation as well as its foundational mission: the outward points of the star are represent outgoing signals, while the inward-pointing triangles formed where the star’s points touch the oval border stand for incoming transmissions. (Orange and white are employed for these images because they are the colors of the Signal Corps.) This insignia was not officially approved until 10 February 1981.

Nicknamed the “Lightning Warriors,” the Brigade was originally constituted on 13 November 1941 as the 93rd Signal Battalion, but was not activated until May 15 of the following year. During World War II, the Battalion took part in four campaigns—Northern France, Rhineland, Ardennes-Alsace, Central Europe—before returning to the United States and being inactivated in January 1946 at Camp Patrick Henry in Virginia.

A little over nine years later it was activated at Fort Huachuca, Arizona and remained an active unit until it was again inactivated (save for Company D) in 1972. The unit received its current designation when it was reactivated in Germany in 1981, was inactivated in 1981. Since that time, it has been activated and inactivated twice; most recently it was activated in July 2008 at Fort Eustis. The unit’s motto, “Loyalty Harmony Accuracy,” is displayed on its Distinctive Unit Insignia, or unit crest.  As with most units, the 93rd’s Combat Service Identification Badge is identical in design to this unit patch.
