The US Army Forces Command (FORSCOM), was created in 1973 (from The US Army Continental Forces Command) and is the largest provider of Combat capable and Ready Fighting Units to Military Theater of Operations. Headquartered at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, there are currently 750,000 Servicemen and Women assigned. FORSCOM not only includes Active Duty, by Reserve and National Guardsmen Components. Bearing the Motto of “Freedom’s Guardian”, FORCSCOM traces it’s origins to The US Army Field Command of World War II (1942). It was responsible for the administration of various Army Divisions, each requiring a standardized training and deployment Doctrine. Working in concert with The US Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC), FORSCOM is a vital component in deploying Combat Soldiers throughout The World. The Flag of FORSCOM is based on the much older US Army Regimental Colors. Devised in the 1980s, The Field of The Flag is Dark Blue in it’s entirety. Centered, is a full-colored image of The Federal Eagle (long a symbol of The US Army). Below the image, is a White Banner with the wording “US Army Forces Command”. Above the image, is the symbol of The Uniform Patch of FORSCOM – which is a circular device with 3 horizontal Stripes (Blue White and Red). Not considered a “Battle Flag”, The FORSCOM Flag is used to identify Headquarters and Administrative components within The Command. It is used in The Field for Parade and Ceremonies primarily.
