    Unit Patches on the FDU

    posted Jul 30, 2014, 4:18 PM by Mark Woods

    ALCON,

    I was recently asked about Unit patches on the AF Flight Duty Uniform (flight suit, FDU). I am including my question and the NHQ response:

    The new CAPM 39-1 in Chapter 8 Item 8.3.4.5 on page 96 states that organizational patches for groups, squadrons and flights are not authorized for wear on the right sleeve? of the USAF FDU. Attachment 4 on page 122 contradicts this statement. A question arose from a unit member as there are a lot of Ohio Units which have approved unit organizational patches.

    May I get a interpretation please.

    Respectfully,

    Response:
    Lt Col Pearsall we have been asked this several times recently and there is a typo in Attachment 4---squadron patches are not authorized on the flight suit.  They were not in the old version of 39-1 and this was not one of the things we changed.  AF approval would be required and since there is really no standardization in the unit patches, we decided not to go down that road at this time.  The top of Attachment 4 does say definitive guidance should be referenced to that uniform’s section in the manual so the words override the chart.
