    The 30th Heavy Brigade Combat Team's patch carries a great deal of symbolism for the brigade, which started life as an infantry division in World War I. The name, Old Hickory, refers to the nickname of former Soldier and President Andrew Jackson, who was born near North Carolina's border with South Carolina. The black outline of the patch represents the letter O and the inner lines represent the letter H. The three X's in the H are the Roman numerals for 30. The black and green patch is for use on the Army's combat uniform; on the Army's dress uniforms the patch outline is in royal blue and the inside is scarlet red.
