"in Accordance to DA-Pam 670-1 dated July 2015, Senior Field Grade Warrants (CW3-CW5) will wear the Field Grade cap with two arc of oak leaves." Okay I am a National Guard M-Day WO, what cataclysmic change occurred, that said that WO's are now Field Grade? Or is this some sort of joke and I missed it? When I read the paragraph DA Pam 670-1 I don't see that mentioned. Is there a letter coming out?

If you look closely there is a difference in the two sections of DA PAM 670-1 (DEC14 vs JUL15) – “Warrant Officer” has been removed following “Company Grade Officers” in the July 15 version. This means you are authorized wear of the service cap corresponding to your rank (e.g. WO1-CW2 – Company Grade and CW3-CW5 – Field Grade). Please remember that the service cap is an optional uniform item.
There us an official update clarifying CW3 and CW4 are now "Field Grade" Officers. CW5 is a "Senior Field Grade" Officer. It has helped a lot with Housing commendations with Active Duty. I would have to do some dogging to see where the official changes were made. But with all of this, they don't want Warrants thinking that they area on the same level as other Field Grades.
