US Army 4th Armored Division shoulder sleeve patch with tank and red lightning bolt. Shoulder sleeve insignia of the 4th Armored Division, United States Army, known as the Name Enough Division, of the type used during World War II. The patch design was used by all Armored divisions, with the division number, in this case 4, at the apex of the triangle. The colors represent the military branches that form an armored division: yellow for cavalry, blue for infantry, and red for artillery. The symbols represent the characteristics: the tank track, mobility and armor protection; the cannon, fire power; and the red flash of lightning, shock action.
The 4th Division landed at Utah Beach in Normandy on July 11, 1944 and entered combat in France. The division commander refused to sanction an official nickname, saying the 4th was name enough, leading to the unofficial nickname, Name Enough. Their role in the breakout from the Normandy beachhead and the liberation of France in 1944 earned them a second unofficial nickname, Breakthrough.They fought their way through Germany. On April 4, 1945, they liberated Ohrdruf concentration camp, a subcamp of Buchenwald, the first concentration camp to be liberated by American troops, and visited by General Eisenhower on April 12.
When Germany surrendered on May 7, 1945, the Division was in Czechoslovakia. The 4th was placed on occupation duty until inactivated on April 26, 1946. The item "US Army M-1951 Field Jacket & Liner 4th Armored Division WWII Patch Medium Korea" is in sale since Thursday, March 14, 2019.
