Introducing project “Military Insignia”, featuring top quality military heraldry designs. Here you will find designer apparel, accessories, custom postage and gifts decorated with insignia of the 116th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (formerly – 116th Infantry Regiment, and later – 116th Brigade/116th Infantry Brigade). It was formerly known as the 1st Brigade, 29th Infantry Division. It is currently assigned to the Virginia Army National Guard. The Brigade is headquartered in Staunton, Virginia, at the Thomas Howie Memorial Armory.
The brigade had its own shoulder patch which was most recently worn in 2006-2008. The shoulder sleeve insignia depicted Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson mounted on his horse, a reference to the 116th's lineage as the Stonewall Brigade. The shoulder sleeve insignia was originally approved for the 116th Infantry Brigade on 26 May 1978. The patch's nickname is “Stony on a Pony”. Due to political and historical reasons the 116th continued to wear the patch of the 29th Infantry Division until 2006, when Virginia's leaders decided instead to designate the unit the 116th Infantry Brigade Combat Team and adopt the shoulder sleeve insignia of the former 116th Infantry Brigade, the famed “Stonewall Brigade.” That patch sports a profile of Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, the legendary Confederate commander from Virginia, astride his horse.
The brigade now wears the 29th Infantry Division patch once again.
