Officer Uniform

Male and female officers standing at attention wearing green officer uniform

The Army Green Service Uniform for commissioned officers differs from the enlisted Green Service Uniform in several distinctive ways--the easiest and quickest way to identify a commissioned officer from an enlisted Soldier is by the black stripe on the outer side of each trouser leg, and the black band just above each sleeve cuff on the green jacket. Additionally, an officer will wear a brass U.S. insignia on each side of the collar just above the lapel, with his/her branch insignia (the career specialty in which the officer has most of his/her training) worn beneath the U.S. insignia on the lapels. An officer will wear rank on shoulder epaulets on the jacket nearest the sleeves. Additionally, an officer's beret will have his rank insignia on it.
