THEY SAW A VARIETY OF USES. HAVE HAD 5TH MARINE UNIFORMS WITH A “US/5” ON EACH COLLAR! IF USED FOR REGIMENT THEN THE OPPOSITE DISK HAD THE BRANCH AND COMPANY ONLY. EVENTUALLY AS THE WAR PROGRESSED THE NUMBER UNDER THE “US’ WAS DROPPED ENTIRELY AND EVEN THE COMPANY LETTER ON THE BRANCH DISK WAS DROPPED – THUS ALL THE PLAIN “US’ AND “BRANCH” DISKS.
