Just like every other war in our nation's past soldiers do not follow uniform regulations 100%. I saw this down range, unauthorized patches being worn, black and brown thread name/u.s. army tags and rank worn on the same jacket or shirt. How many of us have uniforms in this category in our collections. I wore a set of civilian made DCU, not government issue on missions out the wire quit often. Even had patches made locally for my IED crater repair teams, totally unauthorized but as momentous for their hard work both years. We will see many unauthorized uniforms and insignia combinations for years to come, authorized NO, but 100% correct and worn.
