Wear of Regimental Distinctive Insignia

Heraldic Insignia

Taken from Army Regulation 670-1, Wear and Appearance of Army Uniforms and Insignia, 3 February 2005, paragraph 28-23. Regimental Distinctive Insignia:

a. Authorization. Regimental distinctive insignia (RDI) of a design approved by the Institute of Heraldry, U.S. Army, are authorized and prescribed for wear by all soldiers affiliated with a regiment or whole-corps regiment, as described in AR 600-82 and NGR 600-82 .
b. How worn.
(1) Males.
(a) On the Army green, white, and blue uniforms, and the AG 415 shirt, males wear the RDI centered 1/8 inch above the top of the pocket flap, or 1/4 inch above any unit awards or foreign badges that are worn. When the coat lapel obscures the insignia, soldiers may wear the RDI aligned to the right edge of unit awards or the nameplate. Wear of the RDI on the AG 415 shirt is optional (see fig 28-140 ).
