The Army has issued a notice to the field reminding commands that when soldiers and units are sent to combat areas on training exercises, or in support of non-combat operations, they are not authorized to wear a combat patch, unless those training exercises and operations become combat or combat support missions.
Soldiers and units that are not in compliance with Army policy, as outlined in AR 670-1 and Alaract 055-2007, are ordered to "remove their (combat patches) immediately," according to a June 29 All-Army Activities message from the Office of the Army G1.
