Well really both badges should exist in both forms. We need a high vis for Garrison and a low vis for field work;).

We already have that: hi and lo visibility Canada Flags. Might as well go the 'whole hog.' ;)

For the various qual/skill badges that will come about....    Agreed.

Div/Bde patches are to be issued.  But then, does anyone (outside the Good Idea Fairy Office) really want Div and/or Bde patches anyway?

So it would seem.  So, I too will be keeping my old style shirts as long as possible.

And coordinated changing of low-to-high vis patches upon returning from the field!  A "change parade", even!

:rofl:

Surely, somewhere an adjutant is writing an OPORD as we speak...

Ah, yes, the REMFs need to have even MORE influence on normal soldiers' lives.  Forgot all about that...!

To quote a British PTI, "Well, what are you going to do when you actually get in combat, switch into Nike shoes?"

Why not? The Spetsnaz famously wore knock-off Adidas (Mockba) and Chinese tennis shows in Afghanistan. They actually used Mockba right up until they stopped making them in 2011 and they switched to something a little more military.

Clearly, we need Health Services to begin surgically implanting velcro into the foreheads of all people who wear an Army DEU to they can stick their rank there and have it visible, regardless of the uniform being worn.

That will be handy; if they do that the enemy can zero in on the high vis rank and be on target at no risk to the good idea club... :whistle:

Why stop there - include your service number, surname and initials, too. Kinda like Kurt Russell in the movie “Soldier”!

Does anyone know what the "red/burgundy thing" on the left collar is in this picture?

Looks like a Patriots Week (like Remembrance day) ribbon in Lativa.
