Able to wear CIB after reclass

I am an 11B who was in active duty who was awarded a CIB during deployment but i transferred to Army Reserves after my contract and i am reclassing to a 31B and i know i am allowed to wear my CIB still but where in AR 670-1 does it say i can?

When I reclassed 31B, there were former 11Bs that were in my class and had it sewn on their BDUs. Based on that group of badge, you cannot then earn a CAB and wear them both at the same time.

As described in Army Regulations 670-1 Uniforms and Insignia, badges are categorized into marksmanship, combat and special skill, identification, and foreign.[1] Combat and Special Skill badges are further divided into five groups.[2]
Soldiers are authorized to wear a total of five badges from the marksmanship and combat and special skill categories; no more than three can come from the marksmanship category, only one badge each from Groups 1, 2, and 3, three from Group 4, and two from Group 5.[3] And only two identification badges are authorized over each pocket.
These badges are worn in order of precedence (Group 1 the highest). Marksmanship badges are worn after any special skill badge. Badges within the same group may be worn in any order.[4]

I know this is a little old, but I want to make sure that it is clarified.

you CAN earn a CAB if you have already earned a CIB, but Chief is correct in that you can not wear both at the same time. its one or the other
