Where does that Patch go? How about this Pin?

Uniform Diagrams:

Patches and Pins go in the same spot on both the blue and tan uniform.

Note the measurements on the insignia guide for help in placing certain patches.

    • CAREFUL - Only sew the top 3 edges, leave the bottom edge open for access to the button and to be able to put pins through the patch
