INFANTRY REGIMENTAL CREST INSIGNIA

My only MOS is 11B (I was a reservist in Hawaii where the only Army Reserve Infantry Regiment is). After 3 years of service I went into the IRR for 2 years and about a year ago I came back into the Reserves. I am currently slotted as a 92A with a school date of Oct 2015 for re class. Since I'm no longer in a 11B slot or unit I cannot wear my Blue Cord or Blue Disks. My new unit is having ASU inspection next drill and I'm trying to figure out what Regimental Crest do I wear if I wear any? From what I can gather online it seems that grunts wear their Blue Cord and Disks in place of the crest?

Can anyone shine some light?

As a former 12B and 31B, I have seen my fellow 11Bs ask this question when they left the MOS.

If you are not in the MOS, you are no longer eligible to wear your blue cord/discs but I have seen 31Bs who were former 11Bs wear the cord; even though they were told the reg.

In your case, talk to your leadership. You can always pose the excuse that you are no actually MOS-Q/MOS-T at the time. Does your ERB show 11B as your primary or secondary?

Lot of grunts roam at https://forums.goarmy.com/index.jspa I will create an account on there and ask them.
I only have 1 MOS as of now, and thats 11B. That's what my current 1SG said for a minute, but the reg states I need to be in a 11B capacity which I'm not, since the slot I'm in ia a 92A slot, and there are no 11B slots in the unit I'm in.
Found this.
