Hailing as one of the most decorated and respected combat divisions within the U.S. Army, the 1st Cavalry Division has been in existence since 1921. The 1st Cavalry Division ACU Unit Patch by Action Embroidery is to be worn by those who have been selected for this exclusive outfit, featuring production standards of the highest quality, as assured by the largest operating manufacturer of U.S. military insignia.
The shoulder sleeve emblem worn by the 1st Cavalry Division features a triangular Norman shield with a diagonal stripe and horse head symbol in the upper-right corner. It is said that the yellow color of the shield and horse head represent the division’s cavalry roots, while the black coloring is symbolic of steel, a nod to the transition to modern armor and tanks. Wear this insignia to distinguish yourself as a member of an elite fighting force.
Action Embroidery has been in the business of creating shoulder sleeve emblems for the U.S. Armed Forces since 1943. Each of their rank and unit badges is first inspected by the Institute of Heraldry before entering into production, ensuring compliance with all government regulations. All manufacturing for Action Embroidery is performed stateside for quality you can count on.
