Considering how cluttered the appearance of the new ASU uniform is, along with the the current push that all future operations should be conducted with our allies and never unilaterally as well as a regional alignment policy instituted for non-Special Forces units such as 1st Infantry Division with Africa or whether it’s our air support for NATO operations in Libya against Muammar Gaddafi or training Iraqis in Jordan because of the ISIS successes in Anbar province or traditional peacekeeping duties like Kosovo, Sinai and Haiti or our presence in an allied host country like South Korea, it’s interesting that we haven’t been allowed to wear foreign badges on our field uniforms since 1980. Although the army allows wear of foreign badges on dress uniforms.
