US Army Honor guard left shoulder strap?

Recommended Posts

What is the meaning of the leather strap, on the left shoulder of the US Army Honor Guard, for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier? and what is it called? I have some old ones...

I've never seen one that wasn't attached to a uniform. I've always been curious, is it just a leather loop with some rawhide sewn inbetween? Would you mind posting one?

Snapped together and maybe adjustable via the snaps...Only thing sewn on this example and the other few, are the snaps...yellow leather is looped through slits in the black leather...
