"The pre-World War II 5th Army patch was forwarded to the AG office for approval in September 8, 1926. The 5 stars and the pentagon shape both suggest the number of the unit. This patch was not used in World War II, but versions of the patch were made. The reason for their production was due to the mere existence of the 5th Army. Up until the selection of the official patch with middle eastern motif, the pre-World War II version was the only approved patch in existence. The 5th Army's leader, Lt. General Mark Clark requested the new design to represent the area of the world that it served in. His design was sent for approval in February 1943."
