seanmc1114 Posted April 13, 2008 Share #1 Posted April 13, 2008 Does anyone know the history and authority for the wear of the armored triangle SSI for divisions and battalions above the left breast pocket of utility uniforms? I have seen pictures of Gen. Patton with I believe a 2nd Armored Div. patch on the breast of his tanker jacket and I have seen OG-107 uniforms as late as the 70's with the triangle patches over the U.S. Army strip above the left pocket. I have even seen such shirts with Combat Infantry Badge patches below the U.S. Army strip. On the other hand, I don't believe I have ever seen a BDU with this patch arrangement. I have just never read anywhere exactly why this was done and whether it was officially authorized or just tolerated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
