110th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade
Shoulder Sleeve Insignia
On a white vertical rectangular embroidered item coming to a 90-degree angle point at base, a red phoenix rising from red outer flames with yellow inner flames, attached below a reversed blue chevron surmounted by three yellow stars; all within a 1/8 inch (.32 cm) red border. Overall dimensions are 2 1/4 inches (5.72 cm) in width and 3 inches (7.62 cm) in length.
The phoenix denotes the transformation and rebirth of the routine functional brigades to the single multifunctional brigade headquarters. Dark blue, the color traditionally used by Infantry units, signifies the 110th Combat Support Brigade’s lineage to the Third Missouri Infantry Regiment; red and white allude to the unit’s direct lineage to the 110th Engineer Battalion. The stars symbolize the three basic missions of the Brigade: to enable, to enhance, and protect.
The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 110th Combat Support Brigade (Maneuver Enhancement) on 28 September 2007. It was redesignated for the 110th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade effective 1 February 2008. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-944)
Distinctive Unit Insignia

The 110th Engineers served in the Amiens section with the British. The coat of arms of Amiens displays a blue field sown with gold fleurs-de-lis. This also has another significance, for the blue field represents the blue of the old 3rd Missouri Infantry and the fleurs-de-lis recall the Louisiana Purchase and thus the old home state. The diagonal stripe is for the service of both the 110th Engineer and 3rd Missouri Infantry Regiments in Alsace. The arms of Alsace shows a red field with the diagonal stripe. The stripe is red and edged with white to indicate the Engineers. The eagle’s head is for the very hard fighting in the Meuse-Argonne. It is the device of St. Mihiel, the nearest arms bearing town.
