Ok there is a rumor that is going around work that the Canadian Jump Wings are no longer going to be a authorized Foreign Badge to be worn on Army ASU/Class A Uniform. I do not have any written documents saying if this is true or not. The reasoning behind this is that the training that one must go through to get the Canadian Jump Wings to too similar to the requirements for US Jump wings. The fact that US personal are not leading the jumps is not enough to consider the badge a Foreign Badge anymore. I was told that I might be able to get a copy of the new document tomorrow.
I have been looking up the past regulations such as Section 578.120 – Foreign badges. The badge is still being listed on HRCs website as a approved badge for wear. There is something that I found but I am not able to find the full message.
