Arrows and arrowheads are symbols frequently used in US Army insignia designs since they refer to items historically used in warfare and defense. The three arrowheads symbolize the designation of the 3D Sustainment Command (Expeditionary). The patch is worn as shown here, with one arrowhead pointing up. The top of the patch should be 1/2 inch from the top of the shoulder seam.
