I was awarded my Airborne wings and rigger wings in the army. I was told i was able to wear them on my CAP uniform, is this true?
IAW CAP Reg 39-1 10.10 you may wear US Military Badges on USAF style uniforms, but not any corporate-style uniforms.
CAP Reg 39-1 10.10.1.1:
"US Military badges may be worn on USAF-style uniforms in accordance with authorizations and instructions found in AFI 36-2903 when appropriate orders granted by competent military authority are present in the member’s CAP personnel record."
Hope this helps!
Most Awards and Decorations from the Army is authorized for wear. Key is checking with AR 600-8-9 to ensure the Army authorizes award/wear to other branches. Check with AFI 36-2903 to see if the Air Force accepted and authorizes wear. The Airborne Badge is called the Parachutist Badge in the AF. I do know the Airborne Badge is authorized. I believe the Rigger Badge is as well but best to double-check.
Parachute Rigger wings are an authorized badge on the air force uniform, which means its an authorized badge on the CAP uniform.
