I have read the policy that states you will wear 4 skill badges on the ACU in 2 rows of two. The problem is, I have the EIB, Aviation badge, Airborne wings, and the CAB. How should this be worn. Rows of two won't work given the size of the EIB and AV Bagde. Help??? Now, I also have to set-up my Class A's for my DA photo. Same problem. Help again???
This is what I saw on the Alaract message which you have already read. In addition you might want to contact SGM Easley about this. Hope this helps.

SFC Stratton, Actually you are not authorized to wear both your EIB and the CAB at the same time due to both being a Group One badge as per AR 670-1 pg 297. I know that HQDA Ltr 600-05-1 Expired 3 June 2007 but until the new AR 670-1 is published this is the only document that shows clarification to what group the CAB falls under. I hope this helps.
