Lapel etiquette: When to wear them

Lapel pins are worn daily with civilian dress, when the wearing of full-size insignia or miniature insignia is not appropriate. They are worn over the heart, on the left lapel if you are wearing a jacket, or on other clothing in a similar position.

We encourage you to wear them proudly!
