I am trying to get my BDUs back to regs for Encampment use. They are per the 1995 39-1 so they have the CAP cutout on one collar. I need to update multiple uniforms.

If your uniforms are that far out of date, I would recommend going with all new dark blue insignia rather than trying to find used ultramarine insignia. That, or get a set of ABUs with dark blue insignia.

Agreed.  The dark blue looks better on the ABU, BDU, and BBDU.

I agree it looks better in the Dark Blue. I am just trying to save time and money.
The only thing that needs updating is removing the one CAP Cutout and adding the grade to the one collar. I did not want to have to replace everything on multiple uniforms. I rejoined after being out for 17 years and the uniforms still fit.

All I need is 1LT Grade and might have to update the grade to Capt prior to the encampment. I am having to get my daughter fully set up with multiple ABUs already.

I would recommend switching to the navy blue insignia, especially if you may be promoted prior to the encampment.  You cannot mix the ultramarine and navy insignia.

Fair enough. If I can find my old ones (no guarantee) they're yours.

I'll look in my closet, I think I bought a stack before the changeover announcement and never sewed them on.

Bad idea. The old insignia have no doubt faded. Adding a new one means they will not match.

Better to put the two new ones on one set and put two old ones on another set.

If they are faded. I will do that, Thanks. I still have all of the other insignia that I do not want to change just for an encampment.
