The pattern for it was made by me using the image from the US Army's website for reference. I don't remember the size but I'll be sure to post it once I get a chance to measure it again.
For anyone interested interested in the contents:
Foremost is a Roman curass. Below that 1775, the year the US Army was officially established. To the right is a mortar, two mortar shells, and the flag of the Department of the Army. To the left is a cannon with a pile of cannon balls, a drum, and a US flag. Above the curass, from left to right, is a spontoon(spear), a sword topped with a Phrygian cap, and a musket with attached bayonet. At the top is a snake and a banner with the phrase "This We'll Defend."
