Americal Division Unit Patch
The Americal Division is the only army infantry division to be formed outside the continental United States. The Americal division
is also the only named army Division. All other army divisions have a number designation. The army later added the number designation
of the 23rd Infantry Division to the Americal title. The four stars represent the constellation Crux. Crux is referred to as; 'The
Southern Cross'. The Americal Division motto is 'Under the Southern cross'. The patch has been worn in combat by Americal Division
veterans who served in the Pacific theatre during WWII and by veterans of the Vietnam War.
This patch (above) is symbolic of the 'Jungle Warriors' of the 11th Light Infantry Brigade. The 11th LIB consisted of the following
The 3/1, who declare themselves to be, 'Always First'
The 1/20, who carry the name, ‘Sykes Regulars'
The 4/3, who are 'The Old Guard'
The 4/21, are 'The Gimlets'
