Symbolism

The torch is a traditional symbol for knowledge and a sword represents the TRADOC mission of training and educating Army soldiers and developing leaders.  These elements displayed in a crossed position reflect excellence in building the future Army. The disc with vertical stripes of blue, yellow, and scarlet trimmed in green is the TRADOC shoulder sleeve insignia.
