Male ASU Coa Upper Right Chest (Unit Awards, Foreign Badges, and RDI)
Unit awards, foreign badges, and the Regimental Distinctive Insignia, or RDI, are worn above the breast pocket on the right side of the male Army Service Uniform coat.

Unit Awards: They are worn centered over the pocket flap in order of precedence from the wearer’s right to left, with no more than three emblems per row, and from top row to bottom if more than one row is worn. There is no spacing between emblems on a row; rows may be spaced vertically up to 1/8-inch depending on the size of framed emblems. Framed awards from other U.S. Services are worn with the larger Army frame and the frame’s laurel leaves pointing up.

Foreign Badges: Only one foreign badge may be worn, and at least one U.S. medal or service ribbon must be worn at the same time. It is worn centered 1/8-inch above the pocket flap if no unit awards are worn and 1/4-inch above any unit awards. (Note: Foreign badges that cannot be worn properly because of size or design or are available only as cloth badges are prohibited.)

RDI: When no unit awards or foreign badges are worn, the RDI is worn 1/8-inch above the pocket flap. If unit awards and/or a foreign badge are worn, the RDI is placed 1/4-inch above them. The RDI is centered over the pocket flap unless this causes it to be obscured by the lapel, in which case it may be aligned to the right edge of the unit awards or nameplate.
