Also known as a unit crest or DUI, a Distinctive Unit Insignia is worn by all Soldiers (except General Officers) in units that have been authorized to be issued the device. It is worn centered on the shoulder loops of the Army Green Service Uniform (AGSU) and the blue Army Service Uniform (Enlisted only) with the base of the insignia toward the outside shoulder seam. DUIs are not worn on the Dress variations of either uniform, however.

Enlisted personnel wear the insignia centered on a shoulder loop by placing it an equal distance from the outside shoulder seam to the outside edge of the shoulder-loop button. Officers (except Generals) wearing grade insignia on the shoulder loops center the DUI by placing it an equal distance between the inside edge of the grade insignia and the outside edge of the button.

Full guidance on wear of the DUI is found in DA Pamphlet 670-1, Section 21-22, "Distinctive unit insignia" and 21–3(d) and (e), "Beret" and "Garrison Cap," respectively.

The 8th Psychological Operations Group (Airborne) was originally activated at Fort Bragg (now known as Fort Liberty) on 26 August 2011 as the 8th Military Information Support Group (Airborne), reflecting the Army’s decision that same year to rename and “rebrand” its Psychological Operations branch. That move was reversed in November 2017, and today the 8th is one of two Psychological Operation Groups (POG) along with the 4th; both are headquartered at Fort Liberty (previously known as Fort Bragg) and operate under the United States Army Special Operations Command. The Group comprised around 1100 personnel when it was formed, with 1070 Soldiers and about 60 civilian analysts.

With a motto of “Decisive Influence,” the 8th POG (Airborne) comprises three PSYOP battalions, two assigned to regional Unified Combatant Commands (the 1st is allocated for U.S. SOUTHCOM and the 5th TO U.S. PACOM) and a single Tactical Battalion that disseminates products developed by the regional battalions, which are staffed with experts and linguists steeped in the cultural, religious, ethnic, and religious climate of a given area.
