The instantly recognizable Chief Warrant Officer 3 (CW3) rank insignia is most prominently displayed when worn on the black beret, the standard-issue headgear for the Army Service Uniform, or the maroon, green, and tan berets issued to Warrant Officers serving in Airborne, Special Forces, or Ranger units. Placed on the beret flash, the insignia is arrayed vertically and centered.
A subdued cloth version of the CW3 cap rank insignia is worn on the Sun Hat (boonie), Patrol Cap, and the camouflage cover of helmets. Visit our ACU Ranks page to learn more and to purchase subdued cloth CW3 rank insignia for these headgear items, as well for wear on Combat and Utility uniforms or the ECWCS Gore-Tex® parka.
The CW3 rank insignia was previously worn on the Garrison Cap, which was the standard-issue headgear for wear with the Class A Army Green Service uniform until 2001. Though current members of the Active Component, Army Reserve, and Army National Guard are not authorized to wear the Garrison Cap as part of their uniforms, we continue to manufacture and stock a variety of Garrison Caps (i.e., versions for Enlisted, Officer, Warrant Officer, and Generals) because of strong demand from Veterans, as well as from uniform collectors, military aficionados, and others seeking this style of cap manufactured to the Mil-Spec regulations of the day.

Customers interested in the Garrison Cap should also go to our Army Uniforms page and check out the Class A Green Army service uniform for male enlisted Soldiers, Officers, and Generals. We also manufacture it to precise Mil-Spec standards in variations for female enlisted Soldiers and Officers.
