Infantry collar insignia

I know AR 670-1 states in order to wear the Infantry Blue Cordm one must:

(4) By whom worn.
(a) Officers and enlisted personnel of the infantry, holding an infantry PMOS or specialty, who have been awarded
the Combat Infantryman badge, the Expert Infantry badge, or who have successfully completed the basic unit phase of

PMOS.

(d) Infantry officers who have graduated from the Infantry Officer Candidate Course (during mobilization).
(e) Infantry officers and enlisted personnel in the Reserve components who hold an infantry PMOS or specialty.
(5) When worn. Infantry personnel (as described above) may wear the infantry cord as follows.
(a) During the period of assignment to an infantry regiment, brigade, separate infantry battalion, infantry company
(including the headquarters and headquarters company of an infantry division), infantry platoon, or infantry TDA unit.
In addition, infantrymen assigned to infantry sections or squads within units other than infantry units may wear the
cord when authorized by battalion or higher-level commanders.

(d) Infantry OSUT and IOBC graduates may wear the cord en route to their initial follow-on infantry assignment.
(e) Soldiers en route from an assignment where wear of the shoulder cord was authorized are permitted to wear the

(3) How worn. The blue infantry disk is worn secured beneath the branch and U.S. insignia disks, with a 1⁄8-inch
border around the insignia. infantry personnel wear the insignia on the Army green, blue, and white uniforms (see fig

(4) By whom worn.
(a) Enlisted infantry personnel, who hold an infantry PMOS; who were awarded the Combat Infantryman badge or
the Expert Infantry badge, or who have successfully completed the basic unit phase of an Army training program, or
the equivalent.

SO in other words, I'm no longer on an Infantry Unit. I am in a 92A slot in an Engineer Unit, but I still hold 11B as my PMOS. Im pretty sure it means I am no longer entitled to my blue cord or my blue disks? Also do I wear my infantry collar insignia or do I wear engineer ones?

Young Warrior,

how did you end up in a 92A slot in an Engineer unit?

I am positive you will still wear your Cross Rifles because you did not complete either engineer training nor logistics training.

As a word of advice I would push to return to your Primary MOS or reclass. This constellation is not helping you or your unit.

I just transferred to Reserves after spending 2 years in the IRR and my old unit was in Hawaii (100th Battalion 442nd Infantry only reserve infantry unit) and I currently live outside Ft Leonard Wood MO and it was the only unit on base.
