Oak Leaf Placement on Ribbons....?

AR 600-8-22.Personnel wear oak leaf clusters centered on the service ribbon and suspension ribbon, with the stems of the leaves
pointing to the wearer’s right.

Question, how come I see people with oak leaf straight horizontally on an award and see some on a angle? What is the proper wear of one oak leaf cluster? I have one on Unit citation and one on AAM? Anyone know that standard? Thanks.

You just answered it in your first sentence...the stem of the oak leaf clusters are to be worn to the wearers right.

So if you look at SSG Willis AKA go Ordance, at his MYARMEDFORCES signature. His oakleaf clusters are at an ANGLE . So that crap is all wrong...

normally people wear a single oakleaf cluster at an angle. When you buy a set of 2 or more oakleaf clusters, they come already canted.

Wouldn't be exactly uniform to have some ribbons with a horizontal oakleaf and another ribbon with oakleafs going at an angle.

it should be at an angle ... but sometimes, no matter how hard you try, no matter how many pins you bust and have to start over, no matter how many times you have to get a new ribbon because you've taken off the cluster and moved it the barest millimeter to make it canted, only to create a larger hole than you expected and now it doesn't stay in at all, the cluster will look horizontal; which is probably what you saw on the other Soldiers. Hell, I finally got it canted before, only for it to go horizontal by the time I got to formation.

That's why super glue became my new friend. Ribbons and clusters really aren't that expensive.

Very annoying though.
