    [W:95]Infantry Shoulder Rope

    The light colonel that was deposed today was wearing infantry lapel insignia. Also CIB and Ranger tab. My service was a long time ago, so I have forgotten the protocols. Is the right shoulder blue braided rope only worn by enlisted ranks?

    No, both enlisted and officers. Unless they've changed it.

    It's same as it always has been in the Army, at least for the longest time. That is, U.S. Army infantry color is blue and infantry wear the blue shoulder cord on the standard wear uniform. The blue infantry cord is of course worn on the right shoulder of the uniform.

    Infantry officers and enlisted wear the blue cord. The Army Artillery color is red and armor is gold, as is each shoulder cord, respectively.

    Here we see Colonel Jason Garvey who was at the time commanding officer of the 3d Infantry Regiment The Old Guard of the Army escorting Barack Obama. The occasion was the armed forces joint Farewell to the Commander in Chief ceremony at Conmy Hall, Ft. Myer next to the Pentagon as Obama prepared to leave the office of Potus.

    Col. Garvey wears the blue cord of the infantry as do all members of the infantry of the US Army who are authorized to do so. That's officers and enlisted personnel of the Army to include of course nco.


    In view is the Army Honor Guard and the Marine Corps Honor Guard as the then Potus Obama troops the line of the five platoons of the U.S. Armed Forces Honor Guard units in Washington DC.






    Army Colonel of Infantry commanding 3d Infantry Regiment The Old Guard of the Army and support staff advance the color guard in colonial era uniforms during ceremony on Summerall Field, Ft. Myer, Va. Infantry officers and enlisted personnel of infantry wear the blue cord at the right shoulder, blue being the official color of infantry in the US Army. A blue hat band also identifies the officer as being in Army Infantry.




    Troops of 3d Infantry Regiment march to the change of command ceremony for chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, held at Ft. Myer next to Pentagon and involving a platoon of all five services of the U.S. armed forces. The blue cord of U.S. Army Infantry at the right shoulder is clearly visible on the standard wear uniform of the Army for officers and enlisted personnel.

    Ropes help define the various combat arms and having worn the blue rope myself I can assure you that they earn the right.

    The infantry is the only branch of arms that wears a rope.

    No they don't. But I am wrong: ordnance corps wears an orange rope.
