  • Activated : 1942

Shoulder Sleeve InsigniaEdit

Description : Square shape 2 5/8 inches. Two white interlocked hollow squares 1 3/8 inches overall, all members 3/8 inch (.95cm) in width, all on a 2 1/4 inch (5.72cm) square dark blue background. The design was approved by the Adjutant General Office on 18 Jul 1941. On 7 Jan 1942 the shoulder sleeve insignia was amended to eliminate an olive drab edge and border, making the insigina borderless and only leaving it with a dark blue background.

Symbolism : The design was arbitrarily selected to represent the Second Service Command. White, being a mixture of all colors, was selected since service commands were often composed of all arms and services. The geometric design represents the command's numeric designation. The dark blue background was common to all the continental service commands.
