[QUOTE=Inkskin72]Just being Curious on how a 11b Soldier is Distinguish from a non Infantry
I think with a blue cord around their shoulder on their dress uniforms. Most have infantry badges.
Just as a clarification, the Expert Infantryman's Badge (EIB) and the Combat Infantryman's Badge (CIB) are awards that have criteria that must be met before and Infantryman can wear it. It is not automatically awarded to an Infantryman upon the completion of training, that is the Blue Cord and Blue Infantry Discs (under the Infantry Branch Insignia for enlisted and officers).
Only Infantry trained Soldiers serving in Infantry Units can wear the blue cord or the blue discs.
[QUOTE=SteveLord]Before someone asks, while there ARE colored cords for each branch...only infantry are authorized to wear the blue cords with their uniform. And it is [B]ONLY[/B] if you hold the MOS..[/QUOTE]
And are assigned to an Infantry unit. Have to have both to wear the cord and discs. Infantryman assigned to units other than infantry only retain the branch insignia.
