I got hemmed up today because I was not wearing my deployment patch with my combat action badge I looked for a regulation stating they must be worn together but can't find anything. I've never heard of this has anyone else?
There isn't a reg covering that, but wearing a badge you get for being in combat without a unit patch saying you were deployed to a combat zone does look suspicious. And with the amount of stolen valor out there today, it's not without reason.
Why would put yourself in this position? If you are going to take the time to put your CAB on why not take the extra 4 seconds to put your combat patch on regardless if the reg says you have to wear both together or not?
