Inventory Update 21 September 2022: Unusually high demand, coupled with technical problems exacerbated by ubiquitous supply-chain issues, have combined to create a large backlog of orders  for Nameplates. As a result, we are unable to offer Army Green Service Uniform (AGSU) Nameplates in our store, and orders for Army Service Uniform (ASU) Nameplates can take between two and three weeks to manufacture and process.

We are using partial shipments to ensure orders containing items other than ASU Nameplates are expedited as rapidly as possible.

This page will be updated when the AGSU Nameplate becomes available and/or when ASU Nameplate processing times have returned to normal.


Pinpointing precisely when the Army first authorized the wear of nameplates on Service and Dress uniforms is difficult because older Army uniform regulations are not readily available to the public.

According to The Encyclopedia of United States Army Insignia and Uniforms, cloth tape with the wearer’s last name and the phrase “U.S. ARMY” in block letters were officially added to work fatigues in October 1953, while an image from the same book shows a commander wearing a nameplate on the right pocket flap of a khaki blouse in 1955.
