Military Intelligence (US Army Reserve) (Obsolete) Branch Insignia Information

Branch Insignia: A gold color eared shield bearing a circle connected with the border by 13 radial ribs, within the circle a sphinx in profile couchant.

The insignia was authorized on 30 July 1923. The thirteen stripes on the shield converge toward a common point at the center where sits the sphinx, the symbol of wisdom and strength, thus symbolizing the collection of information by the Military Intelligence; and conversely from the center after evaluation, the military information is disseminated.

The Military Intelligence Branch, USAR, was merged with the newly-established Army Intelligence and Security Branch on 1 July 1962 and the insignia was cancelled.

Branch Color: Golden yellow and purple.
