Except for its shape, the 4th Infantry Division's Unit Crest, or Distinctive Unit Insignia, is based almost entirely on the design of its CSIB (Combat Service Identification Badge) and Shoulder Sleeve Insignia, or unit patch. It features a single leaf of an ivy plant, which is a symbol of fidelity and stick-to-itiveness. These themes are mirrored in the unit motto, "Steadfast and Loyal," emblazoned on the scroll encircling the bottom hemisphere of the insignia.

In the mid-2000s, the 4th Infantry Division was reorganized in line with the Army’s vision of making modular combat brigades the primary deployable unit of maneuver. The brigades are “modular” in that a brigade of a particular type—an Infantry Brigade Combat Team, for instance—from one organization will be the same as the equivalent type serving with another organization.

As of January 2018, the 4th Infantry Division has one of each of the three types of combat brigade teams: the 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, the 2nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team, and the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team. Support units include the 4th Combat Aviation Brigade, Division Artillery, and the 4th Sustainment Brigade (redesignated from the 43rd Sustainment Brigade in July 2015). Although the Division earned the unofficial "Iron Horse" nickname a while back for its ability to deploy quickly and deliver substantial firepower, the new organizational system means it (or its subordinate units) can enter into kinetic action faster than ever.

If you're purchasing the 4th Infantry Division unit crest during this visit, you might be interested in picking up the 4th Infantry Division unit patch (Shoulder Sleeve Insignia) or its Combat Service Identification Badge, worn on the Army Service and Mess Dress uniforms.
