The DUI identified as for US Army Drill Sergeants was actually used by all personnel assigned to US Army Training Centers.

 

The collar brass is for armor and could be worn by armored cavalry. See The Institute of Heraldry at: http://www.tioh.hqda.pentagon.mil/Branches/Armor.htm

That is correct, I wore it 1980-82 and was not a Drill Sergeant. Only Drill Sergeants could wear the pocket badge with the same design.

From left to right, 3rd Medical Battalion (3rd Inf) and 17th Infantry Regiment. The 3rd Medical Battalion has been redesignated numerous times and the sword handle should be in the upper left corner when worn properly. The 17th Infantry Regiment is an earlier version from before the buffalo was added.

Services of Supply, renamed in March 1942 to the Army Service Forces. This DI is marked Balfour Sterling on the back. There is also one with the eagle facing the other way that makes a complete set.

An embroidered DUI 73rd Armor, should read HONOR, FIDELITY, COURAGE.

Please overlook my very limited skills on the computer as I am in that post war boomer group and made my living as a plumber and am just really getting to where I will attempt to use this thing. I hope there is someone here that might be able to help me locate the correct D.U.I. design for my father's WWII unit. He was a mechanic in the 37th Fighter Sqaudron, 6th AAF in Panama. One of his favorate story's was telling people that he had once driven a jeep from the East coast to the West in 1 1/2 hours, not telling them that he was in Panama, wish I new how many times I heard that story. Wish I could hear it one more time. Thanks for any help, Alan in S.C.

114th Infantry Regiment which as far as I can tell had no ties to either the 29th ID or 4th Army? This is a strange one.

This one took me a while to figure out. It's misidentified as so many things online (even a boy scout pin) but it's really for...
