Origin/meaning

Scarlet and yellow are the colors associated with Field Artillery. The arrowhead and gunsight symbolize the basic mission of the Brigade and the waves in base refer to the many waterways of the State of Wisconsin, which is an Indian word meaning “gathering of the waters. The red arrowhead also denotes the unit’s long association with the 32nd Infantry Division.

The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 57th Field Artillery Brigade on 25 October, 1979. The SSI was redesignated effective 1 September, 2008 for the 157th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade.
