    I thought you wore those if you served in a leadership position?

    It's a piece of green felt called "Leadership Tab" or people who wear them are called Greentabbers.

    It used to be only for people to wear who were in combat arms units and were line company leaders. I was a green tabber back in '97 & '93. In 2004 or so - they changed the rules and applied it to every one up and down the rank & file and made the rules so vague that noone knows what the real rules are now.
