The common heritage of Field Artillery and Air Defense Artillery forces in the United States Army is reflected in the scarlet (cable number 65006) band found on the service cap worn by Field-Grade officers in both of the branches.

Manufactured with Army Blue 450 material, our Field-Grade service cap for the Army Service Uniform ships fully mounted and ready to wear. The oak leaves on its visor are crafted with genuine gold bullion, the highest-quality material that military specifications allow.

Until recently, only officers in paygrades O-4 through O-6 (majors, lieutenant colonels, and colonels) were authorized to wear the service cap featuring those laurel wreaths. Warrant Officers were classified as company grade officers regardless of their grade and as such wore the company-grade version of the service cap, which is also authorized for wear as optional headgear by enlisted Soldiers at the rank of Corporal and above (the beret is the default primary headgear with the ASU unless the commander directs otherwise).

But as part of its Warrant Officer 2025 Strategy, the Army announced stratifications to its systems of Warrant Officer grades. The new grades of “Senior Field Grade Warrant Officer,” “Field Grade Warrant Officer, and “Company Grade Warrant Officer” were introduced in an administrative revision of Army Regulation 600-20, Army Command Policy, dated 6 November 2014. (The Army Warrant Officer 2025 Strategy report was not completed until 2016.) With the creation of these new grades, warrant officers at the paygrade of CW3 and above were authorized to wear the Field Grade version of the service cap with their Army Service Uniforms.
