    Does anyone know if service stripes earned as enlisted personnel can still be worn on the Army Dress uniform if they were to become an officer.
    I cant figure out if I leave them on or take them off
    taking them off would make me a very sad clown :wtc:

    I'm usually stalking the W4M posts
    I did on my Class A, from being previous service in the Navy. My 1St Sgt, said it flies, so I'm assuming it's okay-

    are you an officer or are you enlisted again
    i know you can wear them from other services,but since its an enlisted only stripe, im wonder if i can still even wear it as an officer

    Service stripes are only worn by enlisted personnel

    AR670-1 doesn't list an exception for that, it just says (20) Service stripes (enlisted personnel only; not authorized on the class B uniform) It's been a long time but I don't recall my last CO wearing them and he was prior enlisted.

    My ex was prior service and did not wear his when he became an officer so you were right.
