Background
The Chief of Staff, Army, approved the wear of the patch on the ACU by personnel assigned to Headquarters Department of the Army (officer and enlisted personnel assigned to the Army Staff only), U.S. Army Accessions Command (USAAC), U.S. Army Accessions Support Brigade, Initial Entry Training (IET), and One Station Unit Training (OSUT). The patch may be worn on the ACU only. For all other classes of uniforms, soldiers will wear the shoulder sleeve insignia currently prescribed by AR 670-1. The patch was authorized on 16 June 2006. It was amended to further clarify the wear policy by personnel assigned to HQDA on 21 August 2006. The insignia was amended to extend (authorize) wear by the Army Recruiting Command's leaders and recruiters on 25 July 2007. (TIOH Drawing Number A-1-887)
