The Order was founded during the 300th Military Police Brigades deployment to Iraq in OIF 07-09 as a demonstration of comradery, and a symbolic reminder of the military tradition of pride in our specific branches. Although we are all Soldiers first, we take professional pride in our subject matter fields of expertise and do not lightly dismiss the sense of confidence felt by those who see the insignia when looking to us for assistance. When the Army changed to the Army Combat Uniform (ACU) they made some changes in insignia and where they were displayed on the uniform. On the Battle Dress Uniform (BDU) officers wore their rank on the right collar and branch on the left collar. When you were in a discussion with an Infantry Officer you knew you were talking to an Infantry Officer and you could adapt your speech to their mind set of thinking. On the ACUs the rank moved to the center of the chest and the branch disappeared. There is no way to distinguish an Infantry Officer from a Dentist or a Lawyer or a Logistics Officer. So the need of displaying branch pride was created, even if it had to be hidden because the patches are not authorized under AR 670-1. The Velcro area under the left collar was designed to turn the collar in to a mandarin collar so Soldiers would not chafe when wearing body armor. That Velcro patch remains unused 98% of the time and is the perfect place for showing branch pride.
We have three catagorties of Products. Patches, Certificates and Patchlockers
