        They do... But personally, the blue is a little light for my taste lolol
        The slot is not as relevant as his PMOS on paper. He could be slotted as a dumpster scrubber but if his PMOS is 11B/11C the cord stays on.

          There is a historical premise for the Infantry Cord (which is colored Infantry Blue (light blue), not sky blue or baby blue...) which I did discuss once in another post.

          As historically only Infantry wore such a cord, as a measure of tradition Infantry soldiers assigned to an Infantry unit wear the cord ((an 11 series MOS holder assigned to a non-Infantry unit cannot wear the cord or disks, unless that slot he is in is specifically slotted and MOSQ for an 11 series MOS - otherwise they are actually in another MOS slot, whether they hold the slotted MOS or not, regardless of their PMOS being 11) such as an Infantryman in an SF unit, or reassigned to a any other type of non-Infantry unit). The info in section 4 in the link posted by fmcityslicker spells it out for the most part, or see AR 670-1.

          If you know the historical reason for the cord, then you will understand its importance, and why it is a source of pride to an Infantryman.

          I completely understand other MOS's having "Infantry Cord" envy... I guess the Infantry are the "Joneses" every one is trying to keep up with

            Wow...hold on everyone. You do not get to hear this much so prepare yourselves....

            According to AR 670-1 para 28-30 (5) I am incorrect. The slot does matter. LRSU Dog is accurate.

              I was correct too! Give me my credit lol. I was the first one to say it mattered what slot you were in... LT's know their stuff sometimes.

                Totally acceptable since we all are human. A Private can know the answer to an Army question versus a four-star General. I still learn a lot about the Army constantly on a daily basis; especially from various SMEs. This forum does keep me on my toes.

                  I actually learned this one the hard way, and was spot corrected. I am an 11B, but was part of an SF support unit, since I had not re-classed to another MOS I assumed (gotta luv that word) that as long as I was an 11B with no other MOS that I wore the cord and disks until I changed... Those correcting me were former 11 series, and were cool about it (which was nice) since this seemed a hard pill to swallow, but something good came of it as I had to learn that the "word on the street" was not always the real deal...

                  I went over AR 670-1 and learned something I never knew before... this was the "real" beginning of my need to research AR's and FM's for info, and one of the important aspects of being a soldier I work to impart on my soldiers - after all knowledge is power, and familiarity with regulations and doctrine (or at least the ability to find it and reference it as needed) is a valuable tool, and if unsure know who to contact for help - such as a JAG/Legal guru, or a Security Clearance expert, or Mechanic, or Admin Specialist, etc - which is equally important, and is highly valuable!

                  Aside from all the new changes and updates to just about everything in the Army, I am learning all over again in some aspects after soooooo many years and still find myself getting corrected from time to time (but I do try to keep that to a minimum as best I can).
