SGT Mark Burns - If your primary MOS is 92A at the time you are in active ground combat and you meet the criteria to earn a CIB or CAB, you would be awarded the CAB. Doesn't matter if 11B is your secondary MOS.

SGT Mark Burns - The way I read the regulation, you would not be meet the requirements to be eligible for a CIB because your duty position was that of supply sgt and not infantry. You WOULD be awarded a CAB if you engaged in combat though while assigned to an infantry unit.

As Per the regulation, you have to meet all of the requirements listed below to be eligible for a CIB.

(1) Be an infantryman satisfactorily performing infantry duties.
(2) Assigned to an infantry unit during such time as the unit is engaged in active ground combat.
(3) Actively participate in such ground combat. Campaign or battle credit alone is not sufficient for award of the CIB.

Point of order, this is LITERALLY a social media forum. Also, I have a hard time reading things you post due to all the typos, and an officer claiming to have been anything like “Oddball” Really shouldn’t try to lecture any other soldier on their bearing. MAJ Rj M

SSG Everett VanOrden - My thoughts too! Such disrespect. This is not Facebook. It's a professional forum and comments should be professional and respectful.

No you have to be an infantryman engaged in combat with the enemy to be awarded a CIB. Said SM would wear the CAB until he engages an enemy as an infantryman

Said Infantryman, has to be with Infantry type unit command when taking contact or they get a CAB also. We had some Grunt types with our Joint Task Force in Iraq and when took contact, the Grunts ended up getting CAB's, like all of us.

the CIB much like the CIB is awarded on orders. YOu don't convert one to the other. Its an individual award for Infantryman in performance of infantry duties in direct combat over a sustain period of time. The CAB is the same but not for Infantryman

As far as I know you can work both at the same time. Usually goes the other direction now. Someone has a deployment as an 11b and fruit to something else get the CAB second.
