The other plus to having it sewn on is you know it's in the right place, and you don't have to remove it for laundry.

    Ensure you get it sewn on per regs! lol.
    I encourage getting uniform all set and ready, one less thing to worry about. Go over your uniforms and cut off any itty-bitty little loose strings and button all buttons.
    When you aren't in ABUs you are in PT gear. Get plenty of those to wear around and be in while you do wash. You can't wear civilian clothes to just walk to the laundry room down the hall.
