Description/Blazon

On a scarlet disc with a yellow border, a yellow sun emitting twelve rays surmounted by a blue horizontal wavy band bearing a yellow gliding snake.


Symbolism

The wavy band and the snake are taken from the coat of arms of the former organization, the 116th Armored Cavalry Regiment. The wavy band and snake represent the Snake River, and refer to the home area of the former organization, the Snake River Valley. The sun alludes to the state of Idaho, noted for the beauty of its sunrises. The name is taken from Shoshoni Indian words meaning " the sun comes down the mountain" or "it is morning." The predominant color, yellow, is representative of Armored Cavalry units.


Background

The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 116th Armored Cavalry Regiment on 9 October 1967.  It was redesignated for the 116th Cavalry Brigade, effective 1 September 1989, with the symbolism revised.

Care Instructions

Attachment options: iron-on, sew-on, or safety pin.

Follow these steps when attaching patches by iron-on backing:

1. Choose the item on which you plan to attach the patch. As a general rule, the fabric you choose should be at least as heavy as the patch. Fabrics like denim and cotton provide the best base for iron-on patches.

2. Lay your item on a flat, heat-resistant surface.

3. Heat up the iron to the hottest setting your fabric can tolerate. Make sure the "steam" option is turned off.

4. Iron the place where you plan to place the patch.

5. Place a thin garment over the patch.

6. Position the heated iron over the patch and press down firmly for about 25 seconds on each side.- Remove the iron and allow the patch to cool.

7. Check to see whether the patch is fixed on securely by gently rubbing at the edge with a finger. If it lifts up a bit, repeat the process.

8. For a completely secure patch, use a sewing machine or a needle and thread to secure the patch to the fabric.

Full adhesiveness will be achieved in 48 hours.

Disclaimer: Don’t wash the item more than necessary since this
process may cause the patch to start coming off. If you do need to wash
the item, hand wash it using cold water. Allow it to air dry.
