Patches in action: Photos of SSI being worn by the troops. in MISCELLANEOUS / OTHER Posted August 22 On 10/27/2017 at 7:25 AM, seanmc1114 said: 124th Army Reserve Command worn in 1978. Either this guy earned his CIB with the 2nd Infantry Division on Korea during the 60s or he is older than he looks if it was earned during the Korean War. By the way, he was posing for a picture for a story about his patch collection that appeared in the April 1978 issue of Soldiers magazine. 2nd Inf Div soldiers could earn the right to wear the division patch as a combat unit shoulder sleeve insignia from 1968 to 1973 if they served north of the Imjin River (e.g., adjacent to or within the DMZ). In 1973, hostile fire pay was discontinued for Korea. Soldiers qualified for HFP if they were assigned north of the Imjin River during a given month. After six months of HFP, they earned an overseas bar for wear on their Class A uniform, and the right to wear the 2nd ID patch on their right sleeve when they departed Korea.
