    This is the 18th MP Bde Patch.The US Army's first combat-tested MP Brigade was constituted on March 23, 1966, as HHD, 18th MP Brigade.
    Activated on May 20, 1966, at Fort George G. Meade, Maryland. With duty in RVN
    Inactivated on March 29, 1973 at Oakland, California.
    Redesignated as HHC, 18th MP Brigade on August 16, 1985, and activated in Germany.

    In the background is the Roman fasces, a symbol of the magistrate's authority. Superimposed is a sword, connotating military power. Combined, they symbolize military law and order
