United States Army Female Shoulder Boards - Chemical
Criteria: Army Shoulder Boards are designed for wear on the Army Dress Blue uniform. For general officers, the background is blue-black velvet.

The board has an 11/32-inch gold-colored border, surrounded on the inside and outside by a single strand in gold jaceron. If the officer's branch has two colors, the second branch color is used as a 1/8-inch inside border, in lieu of gold jaceron. Insignia and borders are rayon embroidery or bullion and jaceron.
