Activated in France on 24 October 1944, the 3348th Signal Service Group—first incarnation of today’s 2nd Theater Signal Brigade—earned a campaign streamer with no inscription for the European-African-Middle Eastern Theater, typically a sign that its personnel were parceled out for use as reinforcements to units already in combat. During the Vietnam War, however, the unit, by that point designated as HQ and HQ Detachment, 2nd Signal Group and based out of Fort Bragg, took part in an astonishing campaigns between 1965 and 1971, earning two Meritorious Unit Commendations along the way.

Redesignated the 2nd Signal Brigade in 1979, the unit would not see major combat action again until the invasion of Iraq; it earned an Army Superior Unit Award for its service during a 2004 – 2005 deployment and another for its 2009 – 2010 tour, living out its unit motto, “EXCELLENCE.”

The orange found throughout the 2nd Signal Brigade Distinctive Unit Insignia is the Signal Corps branch color, and the orange fleur-de-lis is a reference to its service in France in the Second World War. A conical Vietnamese hat (nón lá) represents the Brigade’s many years of service in Vietnam, reinforced by the three orange bands that recall the flag of the Republic of Vietnam; the center band is broken to symbolize minus signs, a reference to negative charges of electrical impulses. The laurel wreath has been awarded for centuries as a sign of outstanding achievement.
