I was awarded the CAB during OIF 05-06, as an Infantry officer commanding an Engineer unit (this ineligible for the CIB), and the CIB during OEF 08, as an Infantry ETT (ultimately working with the ANP). Now retired, I don’t have access to the data as to why both awards were not authorized for wear simultaneously. Anyone?

Both are in the same awards group- and according to regs- only 1 of that group may be worn at a time.

Sir, you absolutely have access to the data. AR/DA PAM 670-1 explains in detail why the two can’t be worn simultaneously.

The official regulations site is CAC authentication required.

armypubs.army.mil is accessible to all, and it’s pretty official, with the .mil and all that good stuff. Be that as it may, the man was a field grade officer as recently as OEF 8. I’d like to think that he’s capable of referencing it himself.

Concur, 1SG(P) (Join to see). I’ve been retired since ‘98, and I’ve had no difficulty thus far in accessing ARs, DA Pam’s, etc., especially those pertaining to wear of the uniform.
