Default Army patrol cap rank

I was wondering what is proper way of displaying rank? Above or below the seam of the hat? Sew on patch

Army regulation 670.1 just says " must be centered, horizontally and vertically"

Typically if you are using pin on then the pins go right above the seam. I haven't had pin on since I was an E4 but since there are no good military sew shops in the Fort Hunter Liggett area I am stuck with pin on E7 rank until I go home on leave. For sew on I leave it up to the professionals and their handy sewing machines.

The major's leaf goes centered above the seam, please. My batman usually takes care of that for me though.

Cool. Yup mines extends below the seam.

Thanks guys. I was at the uniform shop and made them change it. So I was sorta confused for a second.

Believe it or not Oceanside does Army stuff, not just Marines! Dorthy's downtown Oside.

You answered your own question From E-1 t E-4 I prefer pin on rank just for the fact it's easy to swap ranks when you get your rank taken away NCO and above I would sew it on. But make sure you sew on your name plates as well, looks cleaner that way imho...

generally, I believe if you sew on one thing, everything else should be sewn too. just looks cleaner.
