BDU The BDU currently used by the US military has different colors and different military types, but the principles and methods of wearing the logo are basically the same for the three services.



  The army is a big user of BDU. Let’s take the army as an example. The Army BDU has a USARMY military chest strip on the top of the left chest pocket cover. The vast majority of those seen on the market are black on a green background, which is the most common. The US military has also used beige and red in Operation Desert Storm. The brown bottom chest strip matches the desert camouflage, but the quantity is very small, and it is hard to find the hard goods that flow to the market. Now no matter what kind of camouflage, whether it is in the jungle or in the desert, chest strips with black lettering on a green background are used. Above the chest bar are the parachute and helicopter drop chapters with black lettering on a green background. These two chapters represent the soldier's ability to adapt to the battlefield deployment method. Upward is the infantry badge with black lettering on a green background. There are three types. One is a black rifle inside a black box. This is an infantry weapon expert badge; if there is an olive branch outside, it is an ordinary infantry combatant badge; There are five-pointed stars on the olive branch, one indicates an outstanding feat, and two indicates twice or more. These two are rarely used. If one finds a three-cut star, it must be a fake. This is the mark on the left chest of the general army BDU. The right chest is relatively simple. Above the flap is a name chest strip. According to the US military's custom, it only indicates the last name and no name.

Next, let’s talk about the position of the ranks. Soldier ranks are attached to the upper arms of the sleeves near the elbows. They are symmetrical. The Army, Navy and Marine Corps have green backgrounds and black bars, regardless of the type of service (air force ground personnel’s soldier ranks are light blue and black. Kong). The ranks of the officers are decorated on the left and right corners, the left side is the arms, the infantry is a black cross-bottomed rifle on a green background, the cavalry is a black crossed scimitar on a green background, the engineer is a black castle on a green background, and a signal soldier has a black crossed signal flag on a green background. Many, I won’t repeat them one by one here; on the right is a black rank on a green background.

   There are two types of armbands, colored and dark. At present, the U.S. Army mostly uses dark armbands. Generally, the armbands are placed on the upper arm of the left sleeve near the shoulder. The special forces armband is attached to this position. The green beret is a sword that crosses three lightning bolts. The Army Ranger is the SPECIAL FORCE logo strip. Below it is the RANGER XX BR, indicating the X Battalion of the Ranger Regiment. Sometimes there is an AIRBORNE below RANGER XXBR, which means airborne rangers. Color armbands are rarely used on BDUs, except for peacekeeping troops. However, when peacekeeping forces use it, an American flag should be added to the upper arm on the right. The white star on the blue background of the right American flag is at the upper right of the entire national flag, so that the white star on the blue background faces the front of the body when worn. What we usually see is the left-hand American flag used by the Air Force. These two cannot be mixed (except for some US state police who use the left-hand flag on the right arm). Desert Storm has a full set of embroidered logos with red-brown lettering on a beige background, very rare.

   Army caps and helmets are generally decorated with black ranks on a green background.

   Readers can basically adjust their logo according to the Army BDU logo wearing principles, while the Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps can also follow the same pattern. The summary principle is as follows: the left chest is the symbol of the service and combat skills. (Skill level marks cannot be used, such as the target-shaped mark of the army sharpshooter. The general skill level marks are only metal and used for ordinary clothes. If embroidered ones are found, they must be fakes.) The right chest is the last name. The left arm is the armband of the army, except for a few independent brigades and regiment-level units that can wear their own armbands are generally divisions. The right arm is vacant except for the colored right-hand American flag used by the peacekeeping forces. Soldiers wear military ranks on both arms, and officers wear arms and rank marks on the left and right corners.

   The logo wearing principles of active nylon flight jackets MA-1, CWU-36P, 45P and conjoined flight suit CWU-27P. Since the land, sea, air and marine forces currently have flying units, we discuss separately:

  U.S.ARMY   Because the army aviation is small in size, it has the fewest marks and is easy to identify. The most common in Army Aviation are the pilots who belong to each division. The army armband is generally worn on the left arm. The left chest is the army aviation badge (the upper part is the army aviation pilot badge or the weapon operator badge, and the lower part is the text description of the position and rank). The right chest is the type of aircraft. If you are training in a training center, the right arm is the training center armband; if you participate in military operations, the right arm is the mission unit armband (such as DESERT STORM, or XX TASK FORCE, etc.). Whether to wear military ranks on the left and right shoulders depends on the habits and preferences of the troops or individuals. Generally, the army aviation uses colorful embroidered logos. When participating in ground vitality support operations, it is marked with black, green and dark colors. U.S.NAVY Since the naval aviation is on the aircraft carrier and participates in global deployment, there are more signs. Generally, the left arm wears a special left American flag armband for pilots, and the left chest is a naval aviation badge (the upper part is the HNA pilot badge or the weapon operator badge, and the lower part is the text description of the position and rank). On the right chest is the squadron emblem (for example, the Fighting 31 Fighter Squadron is a FEILIX cat holding a bomb, and the Fighting 84 Fighter Squadron is a Jolly Roger, etc.). The right arm is the emblem of the aircraft, such as F14, F16, etc. Whether to wear military ranks on the left and right shoulders depends on the habits and preferences of the troops or individuals. Sometimes the airplane emblem can replace the American flag on the left arm, and the right arm is the action sign. The CWU-27P conjoined flight suit is basically consistent with the above principles. The aircraft carrier pilot has a ship badge under the model emblem on the right arm (the landing chapter is divided into 0 times, 100 times, 200 times, etc., 0 times means less than 100 times of landing. 100 rounds means more than 100 rounds but less than 200 rounds, and so on. The landing seal is marked with the name of the aircraft carrier. The color means that it has the ability to land during the day, and the black and white means it has the ability to land at night.) The carrier pilot is on the left The side ribs are sometimes marked with an aircraft carrier emblem. In general, naval aviation uses colored embroidered logos, rarely, and basically do not use dark logos.

The navy blue angels aerobatic team, using navy blue CWU-27P conjoined flight suits, usually only wear the left chest HNA flight badge, and the right chest blue angels aerobatic team logo, left arm American flag and right arm F18 model emblem Wear it during performances. The leader of the lead pilot wears a leader's badge with four-plane blossoms on the ribs. Wear military ranks on the left and right shoulders.

  U.S.AIRFORCE   The distribution of the Air Force logo is different from that of the Navy. The left arm is the model emblem, which is changed to the American flag when going abroad. On the left chest is the flight badge (the upper part is the Air Force pilot badge or the weapon operator badge, and the lower part is the text description of the position and rank). The right chest is the emblem of the brigade or the headquarters of the direct command (the most familiar is the emblem of the Air Force Tactical Command with swords and wings and the emblem of the Air Force Strategic Command with an iron fist holding lightning. Others include the Air Mobility Command and the Air Transport Command. Headquarters). The right arm is the squadron badge. Whether to wear military ranks on the left and right shoulders depends on the habits and preferences of the troops or individuals.

   Air Force Thunderbirds aerobatic team, using flaming red CWU-27P conjoined flight suits. Usually only wear the left chest Air Force flight badge, and the right chest Thunderbirds aerobatic team logo, left arm American flag and right arm F16 model emblem worn during the performance. Wear military ranks on the left and right shoulders.

  U.S.MARINE   The Marine Corps logo is very simple. The left arm is the model emblem, which is changed to the American flag when going abroad. On the left chest is the flight badge (on the top is the emblem of the Marine Corps pilot or the weapon operator, and below is the text description of the position and rank). On the right chest is the Marine Corps X Flying Company logo, and on the right arm is the MARINE logo.

Sometimes the back of the flight jacket bears the logo of the pilot’s previous missions (after the bombing of Iraq, some pilots had DESERT STORM operations or no-fly zone patrols on their backs; after the Bosnia-Herzegovina war, there were signs of ground support missions in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Sometimes the Air Force pilot is behind a huge Air Force emblem, and the Marine Corps pilot is behind a huge Marine Corps emblem).
