Please note: We try very hard to maintain a realistic stock of all rank and branch combinations in nylon (e.g., we do not stock CW3 Infantry, etc). Also, while we try to keep a robust stock of gold bullion shoulder straps, these items may take up to 3 months to manufacture. We will contact you if we do not currently have the item you desire in stock.
I am hoping to get a pair of WO1 bullion shoulder straps for the chemical branch. The dropdown menu will NOT allow me to select the Chemical Branch. Is it possible to get a set of bullion shoulder straps for WO1 Chemical (male)?
Question by: Tod Zellers on Jan 29, 2017, 1:27:00 PM
Sir, these are a special order item. Also, they are handmade and will have a lead time of 3-4 months. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to proceed with order placement.

I wanted to place an order for some Shoulder straps but it would not let me get past a field. I showed Engineers and COL and then another branch field shows Adjutant General which I don't need. I am ready to shop somewhere else.

Why are there two drop downs for “Bullion Shoulder Strap Branch?” I can select LG for the first one, my branch, but the second one forces me to choose AG.

Is there a difference in size between a man's shoulder straps & a females? I am branching Field artillery and I couldn't find a field artillery shoulder strap under the women's uniform products. If there is no difference in size then I will just purchase the men's one.
Question by: mariah sontag on Jan 11, 2017, 12:32:00 PM
While male and female shoulder straps are the same width, the length differs. Male shoulder straps are 1" longer than females. You can locate the female straps by going to the Female Officer Service Uniform page, they are located in the 6th row down on the product page. Or you may type in product # 08-005 in the search bar at the top right of our webpage, the female straps will be the first that appear.

Are the Medical Service Corps shoulder straps the same as the Medical Corps shoulder straps?
Question by: Matt on Feb 20, 2019, 5:08:00 PM
Yes, the Medical Service Corps and Medical Corps shoulder straps are the same. All of the specialties reside under the Medical branch. The only difference in insignia for the Medical specialties are the branch insignia worn on your ASU's.

On average, how many weeks/months go by before the bullion boards start to tarnish? Assuming kept enclosed in a lined container that you sell.
Question by: Jeff on Mar 26, 2017, 6:55:00 PM
Our bullion straps are gold plated, and to lessen the tarnish we recommend being vigilant about storing them in the free intercept lined case we send with each pair of straps. Although this does not answer your question as far as a specific time frame goes, hopefully, this next bit of information helps! We like to keep 1 strap of each type here, even for ones we only sell once every year or so. That said, we have some straps here that are about a year old and they have not tarnished. We do not keep our straps in the intercept lining while in inventory.
We strongly encourage you to wear nylon when working in humid or moist climates. As the moisture will rapidly increase the risk of the bullion tarnishing.
