29th Division Patch
29th Division Patch. Product Description
2 1/2 inch diameter military spec color shoulder patch. The U.S. 29th Infantry Division is a United States infantry division that has existed since World War I as part of the Army National Guard.
Nicknamed "Blue and Gray," the division's motto is '29, Let's Go!' taken from General Eisenhower's inspiring speech to the troops preparing for the invasion of Normandy. The shoulder patch is a half-blue, half-gray Chinese taijitu; this patch was approved 14 December 1917 and was designed by Maj. James Ulio. The uniting of the blue and grey symbolizes the fact that the division was composed of regiments from Virginia and Maryland that had fought on both sides of the American Civil War.
