Go For Broke Association

 

SHOULDER PATCH

The Shoulder Patch symbolizes the crusading spirit of the men who chose the design depicting the flaming torch of liberty held high.  This signifies their willingness to take up arms for the defense of all people regardless of race or color.


UNIT CREST

The Crest comprises the shield and the motto "Go For Broke" which means "Give your all or give everything you've got". The taro leaf which comes from the coat of arms of the 100th Infantry Battalion (Separate) identifies Hawai'i.  The Steamboat symbolizes the place of activation of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team - Camp Shelby, Mississippi.
