    Hello, I'm wondering why I usually see uniforms with two different unit SSIs?

    For instance, I've seen jungle jacket with 1st calvary on one side and another with 101st. It would be common for soldier who have two tours and transferred to different unit?

    I usually see SF patch with other SSI which makes sense because SF group may be attached to a unit. Same for Ranger, but however, 101st and 1st calvary?

    Thanks in advance.

    With BDU's, DCU's, and ACU's the patch that is on the left sleeve is for the unit of current assignment for that soldier while the patch on the right sleeve is commonly called the combat patch, signifing service with that unit in a combat zone.
    Thats the down and dirty answer.
