Why does my OCP patch or name tape look lighter than previous issued patches and name tapes?

In an effort to standardize insignia across the Army, Air Force, and Space Force, The Institute of Heraldry collaborated with PEO-S to transition each branches insignia. The OCP rank insignia, badges, name, and service tapes are now a lighter, three-color background pattern instead of the previous seven-color pattern. This modification aims to enhance readability and facilitate easier recognition of ranks, addressing the challenge posed by the previous seven-color background. By simplifying these features without compromising the overall functionality of the uniform, the transition seeks to improve situational awareness in day-to-day interactions for military personnel.

Symbolism: The musket is adapted from the Infantry insignia of branch and represents the first official U.S shoulder arm, the 1795 model Springfield Arsenal musket. It was adopted as the official Infantry branch insignia in 1924. The oak symbolizes steadfastness, strength and loyalty. Stars are added to the top of the wreath to indicate subsequent awards; one star for the second award, two stars for the third award and three stars for the fourth award.

Award Eligibility: Awarded to personnel in the grade of Colonel or below with an infantry military occupational specialty who have satisfactorily performed duty while assigned as a member of an infantry unit, brigade or smaller size, after December 1941, when engaged in active ground combat. Expanded to permit award to Command Sergeants Major of infantry battalions or brigades, effective 1 January 1967. Specific criteria for each conflict was also established.
