Our subdued cloth grade insignia for Lieutenant Generals features the rank insignia of three stars embroidered in black on a cloth background made up of the Universal Camouflage Pattern (UCP) used on the first generation of Army Combat Uniforms (ACU) introduced in 2004. It was at this time that the Army adopted hook-and-loop fastener systems, more well-known by the trade name Velcro, to attach insignia on the ACU and other Utility uniforms and uniform components, leading many Soldiers to casually refer to these Velcro-backed, subdued grade insignia as “ACU ranks” or “ACU insignia.”

In July 2015, the Army stopped issuing ACUs manufactured with the old UCP and began selling ACUs made with what is called the Operational Camouflage Pattern, or OCP. The Army has set a “wear-out date” of 30 September 2019 for ACUs made with the old camouflage pattern, with the next day (1 October 2019) set as the mandatory possession date of the newer, OCP-based ACUs.

Your first step should be to select the camouflage type, OCP or UCP, that matches the uniform on which the insignia will be placed before selecting insignia. Note: If you wish to purchase more than one type while on this page, select the type and number and press "Add to Cart" before proceeding to the next insignia to purchase.

Rank With Velcro:  Worn on ACU/Utility uniforms, attached with Velcro backing.
Cap Rank:  Worn on Patrol Cap, Sun Hat (boonie), or helmet camouflage  cover. May substitute subdued pin-on metal insignia in place of this item.
GorTex:  Insignia tab with opening at bottom so it can slide over the tab found on front of the Gore-Tex® parka.
