Men's Basic Uniform Regulations

The cover is the men's scarlet garrison-style cap with gold lettering and piping.  Regular members wear the regular member cap device which is a gold-colored Marine Corps emblem on the left side, affixing it to the cover by a screw-post attachment.  Associate members shall wear the distinctive associate member cap device in the same location as that of regular members, affixing it in the same manner.  Under no circumstances are associate members permitted to wear the cap device of a regular member.

Detachment Name and Number

The detachment name and number should be embroidered on the right side, ½ to ¾ of an inch up from the bottom of the cover, and centered from left to right.

 

Cover Identification Strips

Identification strips should be worn to indicate currently-held offices and removed or changed each time a member changes their office or they are no longer serving in a staff billet.  The only exception to this is that of the title of "PAST COMMANDANT" as this is a lifetime title.  The identification strip shall be worn on 

the right hand side of the cover, above the detachment name, and centered from left to right.  For those who are lifetime members, the "LIFE MEMBER" strip may also be worn.  It should be worn the same manner as the billet identification strips—that is, centered on the right side of the cover, and above the detachment’s name.
