199th Light Infantry Brigade

The 199th Light Infantry Brigade arrived in Vietnam on 12th December 1966 and remained in the country for almost four years. Their shoulder sleeve insignia was a blue shield and featured a white spear in flames. The red ball in the middle of the patch represented the splitting of the atom and was meant to be indicative of how Infantry fought alongside the sophisticated weaponry of the Nuclear age.1
